The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has levied serious allegations against the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana, accusing it of collaborating with officials from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to register minors in the ongoing registration exercise.

The NDC’s General Secretary issued an official press statement highlighting this concerning issue.

According to the NDC’s statement, a particularly troubling incident occurred at the Pusiga registration center.

There, an EC registration officer named Muhazu Alhassan allegedly used a single Ghana Card to register over 20 applicants, raising suspicions of collusion with the NPP.

In their press statement, the NDC expressed deep concern over the misuse of the Ghana Card and pointed out instances where EC officials, in partnership with NPP members, are allegedly exploiting this for electoral gain.

Following the discovery of these irregularities, law enforcement authorities were informed, resulting in the arrest of Muhazu Alhassan.

“Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press, we are compelled to address another grave concern: the flagrant abuse of the Ghana Card. It has come to our attention that EC registration officials, in collusion with elements from our opponents, the NPP, are misusing the Ghana Card extensively. A particularly alarming instance was uncovered at the Pusiga registration center, where EC registration officer, Muhazu Alhassan, used a single Ghana Card to register over 20 applicants.

Upon discovery, the police were promptly notified, leading to Muhazu Alhassan’s arrest.
Although he has since been granted bail pending further investigation, this incident raises significant concerns. The NPP’s distribution of Ghana Cards to minors to facilitate their registration underscores a systemic manipulation of our electoral process. The EC has lamented the registration of minors yet conspicuously fails to challenge the National Identification Authority (NIA) for issuing cards to these minors and misrepresenting their ages.”

Although he has been granted bail pending further investigation, this incident has brought to light broader concerns about the integrity of the electoral process.

The NDC also criticized the NPP for allegedly distributing Ghana Cards to minors to facilitate their registration, highlighting what they view as a systemic manipulation of the electoral system.

Furthermore, the NDC called out the EC for not challenging the National Identification Authority (NIA) regarding the issuance of cards to minors and the misrepresentation of their ages.
