The NDC’s National Director of Elections, Elvis Afriye Ankrah addressing a press conference in Ho after a tour of some registration centers in the municipality, accused the NIA of deliberately orchestrating stupendous delays in the registration process causing registrants to sleepover at registration centers only for an average of 60 people to be registered on daily basis.

More than three weeks since the exercise began in the region numerous challenges including network problems, frequent breakdown of machines, long queues, sleeping at registration centers overnight among others were observed.

But he believes is a deliberate  attempt by the National Identification Authority (NIA) to ensure the work in favor of the NPP and disenfranchise NDC people in the Volta Region from taking part in the registration.

“The National Identification Authority (NIA) are working in favor of the NPP,all the officials there are NPP officials,the media should send their reporters to the ground to  investigate these,” Elvis Afriye Ankrah exclusively told Kwame Tutu on Anopa Nkomo on Accra based Kingdom FM 107.7

He said technical challenges and poor human behaviours by NIA official have discouraged Voltarians from participating in the registration.

Meanwhile, the exercise is expected to end on 14 August within Volta and expected to continue in the Oti region in the third week of August.
