Duffuor calls for postponement of NDC presidential primaries over inaccurate voters’ register

National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer hopeful, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, has called for the postponement of the party’s forthcoming presidential primaries scheduled for Saturday, May 13, 2023.

Dr. Duffuor cites inaccurate and incomplete voters register as grounds for his request.

Having an incomplete and inaccurate register, the Campaign Team of the former Bank of Ghana Governor argued, is a significant issue when going into an election because it undermines the credibility and fairness of the election process.

“Reference our meeting with the Presidential and Parliamentary Elections Committee of the National Democratic Congress on the 4th Of May 2023. From 1418hours To 1523hours at the NDC Headquarters”

“Upon initial review of the 220 constituencies Voters Register (Photo Album), we identified several discrepancies in the register that indicate it is both incomplete and inaccurate,” the letter signed by the Head of Research & Strategy, Duffuor Campaign, Kofi B. Kukubor said.

“A comprehensive and accurate voter register is essential for ensuring that eligible voters are properly registered, and for preventing fraudulent activities such as multiple voting, impersonation and being refused a vote on the day of election,” it added.

According to Team Duffuor, the supposedly inaccurate and incomplete register has a high potential of deliberately causing irreparable damage to the bright chances of Candidate Dr. Kwabena Duffuor.

In view of the challenges, Team Duffuor is demanding the following;

  1. Postponement of the May 13th Presidential primaries.
  2. Stakeholders meeting to establish an agreeable roadmap that will guarantee the integrity of the Voters Register
  3. Clean the Voters’ Register within an agreeable timeframe to ensure free and fair elections
  4. To save the image of the NDC so that the party can have a credible voice to speak on national election matters when the need arises.
