Outspoken NPP Bono Region chairman Kwame Baffoe (Abronye) has called for the arrest of the General Secretary of the main opposition (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu. Nketia, over his alleged involvement in aiding some persons from Ivory Coast to enter Ghana illegally to acquire the voter ID card in the just-ended registration exercise
Abronye stated ,a news which was aired on TV and has since gone viral on social media, indicates that 66 persons alleged to be Ivorians were arrested in the Banda Constituency of the Bono Region for acquiring a “ voter’s card” illegally.
In a statement issued and signed by the NPP Bono regional Chairman on 7 August 2020,Abronye stated that: “The arrested persons are individuals who are not Ghanaians, neither are they persons resident in Ghana. The arrested persons are individuals who were led into the country from Ivory Coast by NDC’s General Secretary, Aseidu Nketia. It would be recalled that a few days ago, Aseidu Nketia was seen in an audiovisual clip claiming that the military personnel deployed to Banda are preventing Ewes from registering.
The statement further continued that: “Per my facts and investigations so far gathered, checks reveals that General Mosquito paid and hired the car which was transporting the illegal registrants to Ivory Coast. It is of no doubt that all Ewes living at Akayakrom, which is known to be an Ewe community at the Banda Constituency, registered without stress and any form of intimidation.”
The Bono Regional NPP has, therefore, called “on the Ghana Police Service to immediately arrest, investigate and prosecute General Mosquito for aiding and abetting illegitimate persons to gain a voter’s ID illegally. “
