Early on Wednesday morning, the Krachi East Municipal Police Command stopped a 33-seater bus carrying “illegal registrants” who were on their way to Dambai to obtain the new Voter Identity (ID) cards.
It was assumed that the passengers aboard the bus with the license plate GT 9530-B came from Abotareye in the Nkwanta South Municipality of the Oti Region.
The bus’s over 30 passengers were at the Krachi East registration center in Dambai, according to information acquired by the Ghana News Agency (GNA), and additional questioning proved they were not inhabitants of the Municipality.
According to sources close to GNA, the Police have not yet met with the political parties to discuss the matter.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is accused of busing registrants to the Municipality since the beginning of the registration process, with the present incident serving as an example, according to Felix Ade, the NPP’s regional organizer.
He said that the predicament caused the party to hone its intelligence, which resulted in the bus being intercepted.
Peter Nlepa, the NDC’s constituency communication officer, refuted the claims that the party bused “illegal registrants” to the registration center.
The captured registrants, according to him, lived in Dambai and were qualified to apply for registration and voter identification cards.
