The National Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Sammi Awuku has taken a swipe at the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), saying they have no right to blame anyone for the predicament in which they find themselves, with regards to the compilation of a new voters register.

The NPP National Organiser says the NDC’s predicament is a self-inflicted one, premised on the fact that the party was vehemently opposed to the Ghana Card registration that was undertaken by the National Identification Authority (NIA). reports Mr. Awuku who also doubles as the Board Chairman of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) as asserting that had the NDC taken the Ghana Card registration by the NIA seriously, the fear that has gripped it with regards to the form of identity to be used for the upcoming compilation of the new voters register would not be there.

The NDC has maintained that the exclusion of the use of National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) Card and driver’s license is a ploy by government to disenfranchise its members.

But Speaking on Accra based Peace Fm’s Kokrokoo morning show with Kwami Sefa Kayi, Mr. Awuku said the leadership of the NDC should be blamed for the current state of affairs.

The NDC is setting a dangerous precedent and gradually they will send themselves to the slaughterhouse…when we starting registering for the NIA card, the NDC asked their supporters not to participate but their MPs, the former President registered; now because of that earlier position they took, they feel that they didn’t encourage many of their supporters to register so if the NIA card becomes means of identification, their numbers will be limited. But who cause am?.’’
