A Member of the Communications and Legal Team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abraham Amaliba, has accused the National Identification Authority of deliberately slowing down the Ghana Card registration and issuance process in NDC strongholds.

According to him, that is a part of a government grand scheme to rig the elections in favour of the New Patriotic Party.

His remark comes on the again of issues raised by the NDC concerning the Electoral Commission’s resolve to admit the Ghana Card solely because the identification doc for voters’ registration in the upcoming registration process in direction of the 2024 elections and past.

According to the NDC, the choice by the EC will finish up denying thousands and thousands of Ghanaians their rights to vote as many individuals have both not registered for the card or are but to obtain their playing cards following registration.

While, the EC insists that the usage of the Ghana Card as the only supply of identification for the continual voters’ registration exercise is the surest approach to rid the electoral register of minors and foreigners, the NDC says with the rollout of the playing cards at a snail’s tempo thousands and thousands of Ghanaians eligible and desirous to exercise their voting franchise will be prevented from doing so.

Speaking on PleasureNews’ PM Express, Abraham Amaliba said, “Indeed we have information that the NIA in our strongholds is slowing down the processes and making it difficult for our people in our strongholds to acquire the Ghana Cards. And that’s where the Chairman of the party indicated that there’s some collusion just to ensure that the NDC and its members do not get the Ghana Card so as to register.
