Former New Patriotic Party [NPP] Member of Parliament [MP] for Asokwa constituency, Maxwell Kofi Jumah is challenging the chairman of the Electoral Commission [EC] of Ghana, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan to make public the voters register with the biometric information.
According to him, he has sense some malfeasance by the EC which he insists will go against the NPP in the 2016 general elections.
The former KMA Boss is of a view that, the EC boss, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan and the ruling National Democratic Congress [NDC] manipulated the 2012 election which Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP seeked the court for clarification even though the apex court ruled against them.
Outspoken Kofi Jumah, affectionately called “Kofi Ghana” in politics however described both Afari Gyan and leadership of the NDC as “thieves” when he took toFacebook to challenge the EC.
“Let Afari Gyan make available the voter register with the biometric information and I will prove to him that he and the leadership of the NDC are part of a stealing brigade. Certified thieves”
However, the NPP flagbearer, Nana Addo is also demanding a new voter’s register.
He maintained that for a credible election to be held in 2016, the voters register must be changed.
Nana Addo was convinced the current voters register is bloated.
According to him, the new voters register figure of 14 million is far in excess of what it should be considering the fact that the 2010 population census captured the total number of Ghana's population to be 25 million.
