The National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Bolgatanga East Constituency of the Upper East Region has accused the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and its Parliamentary Candidate, Mathew Alisa Amoah, of engaging in illegal activities contrary to Article Ci91, Section 11D of the Ghanaian constitution.

According to Jacob Aka-Erii, the Secretary of the NDC in the constituency, the NPP’s candidate and his associates are renting rooms and bringing individuals from outside the constituency to participate in the recent limited voter registration exercise.

“As the 2024 limited registration began on the 7th of May 2024, what we, as members of the National Democratic Congress, are observing on the ground is the New Patriotic Party Parliamentary Candidate for Bolgatanga East, Mathew Alisa Amoah, and his executives are once again planning to bring in people who are outside the constituency to register and vote,” Aka-Erii stated.

Speaking to the media at the party office, he referenced Section 11D of Article Ci91, emphasizing that individuals not meeting residency requirements, such as having lived in the area for the last 12 months or being born there, are ineligible to register in that constituency.

“We are calling on him that if he so believes that the people of the area will vote for him come December 7th, 2024, he should desist from all acts of illegality contrary to C91,” Aka-Erii urged.

Mr. Aka-Erii further elaborated that these individuals being brought in are from Nabdam, Talensi, Bongo, and Bolgatanga Central constituencies, highlighting a concerted effort to influence the electoral process in Bolgatanga East.

The Secretary again explained that the alleged behavior on the part of the PC and his associates was not the first, as in 2023 a similar incident happened where individuals were reportedly bussed from Tamale to Bolgatanga.

He went on to warn that the NDC is vigilant and prepared to thwart any attempts at electoral fraud.

“I believe the media houses present are all aware that in 2023 they bused people from Tamale to Bolgatanga and then we caught them. They are again mobilizing for this year’s transfer, and we are sending strong signals that we have picked all information on the ground and we are waiting for them.”

In response, Ayimbila Atera, the Constituency Communications Director for the NPP, dismissed the accusations as baseless and described them as an attempt by the NDC to deflect from their impending defeat in the December 7th elections.
