Kojo Bonsu, a flagbearer aspirant for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has expressed concern over the alleged anomalies in the party’s voter register.
He believes that these discrepancies could adversely affect the upcoming primaries scheduled for May 13, 2023.
His concerns come in the wake of a writ filed at an Accra High Court by Dr Kwabena Duffour indicating that the party failed to provide the required photo album register five weeks ahead of the elections as stated in the party’s rules.
He stated that a partial photo album register was given to his team on May 4, a few days ahead of the elections rather than in March when they had submitted a request for one.
Dr Kwabena Duffour has called for a postponement of the primaries, a position that Mr Bonsu supports.
In an interview with Kumasi-based OTEC FM, the former Kumasi Mayor argued that delaying the elections would allow the party ample time to address the issue in their electoral roll.
“They have to postpone the date of the election and rectify it [the alleged anomalies in the album]”, he said on Tuesday evening.
He warned that if the party ignores this matter and proceeds with the May 13 poll, it risks facing further legal actions.
