Deputy General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen has reacted to the flagbearer of opposition National Democratic Congress (ND), John Mahama’s claim that the Electoral Commission is secretly printing new voters identification cards.

Obiri Boahen speaking in an interview on Manhyia-based Opemsuo FM said; “Is that not an absurdity? Foolishness and madness to say?”

Adding that the former President allegations that the Electoral Commission led by Mrs Jean Mensah plans to rig the upcoming general elections are senseless.

“This is a clear of foolishness! NPP unlike NDC and CPP we win elections on merit. So we don’t need EC to rig the election for us”, the private legal practitioner told host, George Opoku Mensah Agudey on “Nkwantananso” political talk show.

EC however has debunked claims that the Commission is secretly printing new voters ID cards.

“As such the cards in the video belong to those persons with duplicate voter ID numbers. They were authorized by the Commission, printed at the Headquarters, and subsequently sent to the District Offices for lamination and distribution”, the EC clarified in the statement.

“The public is therefore advised to disregard the video,” the Commission further stated.
