The founder and the leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), Percival Kofi Akpaloo, has described the leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) as nation wreckers who have nothing good to offer Ghana.
His criticism comes at the back of the stiff opposition by NDC to the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) to use the National Identification card as a sole document to register people onto Ghana’s voter register.
The NDC has kicked against the EC to make the Ghana Card the only proof of citizenship for voting in the 2024 general elections and beyond.
In a statement signed by the National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, the party said such a decision will disenfranchise many qualified Ghanaian voters, hence their resistance.
But Mr. Akpaloo, reacting to this in an interview with Onua TV on Tuesday, August 9, chastised NDC’s leadership for constantly refusing to attend Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meetings to make contributions to Ghana’s electoral reforms.
He was livid at the behaviour of NDC and the fact that they are bent on boycotting IPAC meetings yet have the bravado to vilify decisions by the EC, political parties and other stakeholders.
“NDC have strongly refused to attend IPAC meetings since the 2020 general elections and they feel that without them we cannot hold meetings to take decisions because they see Ghana to be either for NDC or NPP.
“Can the NDC leadership boldly and openly say that the party has not been served letters to attend IPAC meetings to discuss Ghana’s electoral reforms?” he quizzed.
Mr. Akpaloo expressed fret over the decision by the NDC to kick against the NIA card registration exercise from the initial stage and the quick U-turn to blame the secretariat.
He insisted that the NIA card will be used as a sole documentation for the voters’ register and thus urged the general public to ignore the attitude and crafty tactics by the NDC to downplay EC’s decisions.
