The Bono Regional Communications officer of the ruling New Patriotic Party has described the ongoing and intended numerous demonstrations by opposition parties spearheaded by the National Democratic Congress towards the Electoral Commission as nuisance and needless.

In a tet a tet with KKbPortal, Mr Seth Asare Bediako popularly known as ABS noted none of those disruptive demonstrations will change voters' mind towards the clueless NDC.

"It is not the duty of the EC Chair or the EC as an institution to ensure that a particular political party wins an election.Winning an election depends on seriousness of a party, how well it's able to market its policies and programs to the electorate and how effective and efficient its internal structures work, among several others" he argued

He therefore adviced the NDC "instead of wasting time on whether or not the EC could help you win election, you must rather channel your energy at reaching out to the electorate with convincing campaign messages, of which the NDC has none but empty and destructive criticisms"

The vociferous communicator described the campaign methodology adopted by the NDC as ruthlessly archaic and will-be-fruitless tactics.

"The NDC should note that the era of such political intimidation, empty talk and outdated communist tactics meant to divert attention from the impactful and highly appreciated policies and programs by the Akufo-Addo led government is over. They should rather focus on issues and policies, and stop some of these 'noises' which many right-thinking Ghanaians consider as extremely irritating" Mr Asare Bediako observed.

The opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) is set to embark on another demonstration in the Ashanti Region come 21st January, 2020.
The Demonstration, dubbed,”Yempene” is to protest the Electoral Commission’s (EC) decision to compile a new voters’ register for the upcoming elections while in an election year.
Already, a similar Demonstration has been held in the Northern Region, drawing huge crowds to indicate how those in the Region, especially NDC supporters did not agree to the decision by the EC.
The “TIKUSAHI Demonstration” saw the NDC sympathisers burn tyres, while they marched through the Central Business District of Tamale, chanting ‘war songs’ against the compilation of a new voters’ register by the EC.
Despite their attempt to resist the compilation of the new voter’s ID Card, the EC has however, turned a deaf ear to the NDC and is bent on executing its plan.
Meanwhile, the party still stands by its opinion that the current voters’ register is credible, and therefore it should be used in 2020 just as it was used in 2016.
