A leading member of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Professor the Joshua Alabi, has cautioned the party against diversionary tactics being employed by the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) so as to take the attention of the NDC off the pressing issue of the new voters’ register.
The Airbus saga was after a crown court judgment in UK between the Serious Fraud Office and the Airbus SE over aircraft business in five countries including Ghana.
The said judgement is quoted AAirbus officials claiming to have paid some money to their intermediary in Ghana to influence high government officials between 2009 and 2015.
But Prof Alabi, a former Vice Chancellor of the University for Professional Studies- Accra ( UPSA) credited with transforming the institution, has reminded the NDC to be wary of their opponent’s machinations and stay focused.
“Let’s guard against the diversionary tactics of our opponents. I hope by now we should all be expecting diversionary tactics from our political opponents,” he advised in a post sighted by THE REPUBLIC
Prof Alabi encouraged the NDC to follow through with its plan with respect to their opposition to the EC’s new register given that they are on the path to victory.
“We have a well-structured plan towards the December elections. What is on the table now is the voter registration and the conduct of the EC. Please let’s be focused with our plans. We are winning,” he added.
The issue of the new register has become a contentious one; while the EC is adamant that it is going to compile a new voters’ register, the NDC and many civil society organizations have expressed opposition to the move, insisting that it is a needless, wasteful venture. But the NPP wholeheartedly supports the EC.
