He argues that the evidence provided by the NPP was “deliberately manufactured.”
He further argued that “a close examination of the pictures presented as evidence of registration by Togolese and Ivorians shows a clear case of deceptive manipulation of photographs taken at different times.”
Asiedu Nketia said in many of the purported evidences provided by the NPP, the two pictures presented as those of one person bear no resemblance to each other adding that “more importantly, the pictures the NPP purports to be samples of a Togolese register do not bear the names of the supposed voters, neither does it bear the age or gender of the supposed voters.”
“We are convinced beyond any doubt that the NPP deliberately manufactured this lie to justify unfounded calls by them and their surrogates for a new voters register. We find it curious that days after the NPP, in a bizarre press statement, claimed that some persons were going round collecting voter ID cards of unsuspecting Ghanaians with promises of giving them loans and jobs, such dubious claims about the voters register should be made.”
The NPP on Tuesday petitioned the Electoral Commission over claims that Ghana’s voters register is fraught with 76, 286 Togolese names, minors and persons who registered using NHIA ID cards.
They also claim Ghanaians have lost trust in the register hence must be scrapped and a new one compiled.
They urged the Electoral Commission to compile a new voters register before June 2016.
