NPP Man Goes Wild

Mr. Michael Ampong, a former Deputy Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is beside himself with anger.

He says that the posture of some officers and leaders is destroying the image and credibility of his party.

In a presentation on Radio Gold’s 'Alhaji and Alhaji', Mr. Ampong questioned the validity of arguments made by some elements in the party for a new voters' register.

He said the denial of a Togolese opposition party that it made available the Togo electoral register to the NPP destroys the credibility of the party’s claims.

According to him Dr. Mahmoud Bawumia, the party’s Vice Presidential candidate said at a press conference that the NPP examined only 10% of the Togolese register.

“What happened to the 90 percent and how does the party expect us to come to any reasonable conclusions on account of 10 per cent work? He asked.

Mr. Ampong said even if minors of 16 years and below register to vote in the last elections, they would have attained the voting age by now.

He said the argument that some people used the National Health Insurance card for identification in the last registration exercise is not strong enough to justify the compilation of a new register.

“These people have now obtained valid voters ID cards and can now use them for a new registration exercise,” he said.

Mr. Ampong said what the NPP needs to do, is to win the 2016 elections to provide a workable and credible alternative to the policies of the Mahama administration.

He said complains about existing voters register with wrong facts would not secure victory for the party.
