General Secretary of the largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia has alleged that the Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwame Baffoe( alias Abronye DC) is a Lobi, whose forebears settled in the Bono Region, arguing that once he has been allowed to register as a voter, he cannot bar other settlers from registering to vote in the region.

Following allegations that the NPP was preventing settlers, especially Ewes, in the region from registering to vote in the upcoming elections, Mr Asiedu Nketia stated that the basis for qualification to register is a residency and not the origin, that is to say, a Ghanaian who hails from Kumasi but has been resident in Accra is qualified to register if he or she meets the residency period permitted by Law.

He added that if a settler like Abronye DC who has been permitted to register, then he and his party have no right whatsoever to bar others from registering, especially in the Banda Ahenkoro area.

Meanwhile, Abronye DC has hit back, accusing Mr Asiedu Nketia of being from Côte D’Ivoire and therefore not a Ghanaian.

The voter registration exercise, which began on 30th June, is in the mop-up stage and will end on 9th August 2020.

The mass registration exercise took place in all registration centres across the country with a few hitches, including reports of supposed non-Ghanaians being physically prevented from registering in some places.
