Tension is mounting in the Sekyere Afram Plains branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) due to the sudden disappearance of the party’s polling station register in the constituency.

The matter has since been reported to the police, who have commenced investigations to retrieve the polling station register which has vanished from the NDC’s office.

Samson Bandoh, the NDC Constituency Secretary for the area, who reported the case to the police, alleged that the NDC MP for the area, Alex Adomako Mensah, had hijacked the party’s register.

Mr Bandoh said the MP hijacked the register to ensure the participation of his favourites in the upcoming constituency polls.

“The MP wants to deny people like us, who he hates, from getting the chance to take part in the NDC elections.

“What the MP has done is illegal so I have reported the case to the police at Drobonso and the NDC Ashanti Regional office,” he stated in an interview.

Speaking to DAILY GUIDE on Wednesday, he said the Ashanti Regional NDC had instructed the MP to bring back the polling station register immediately.

Bandoh, however, stated that “if the MP fails to comply with the party’s directive, then I will go to court and place injunction on the elections.”

MP’s Reaction

Mr Alex Adomako Mensah, when contacted by the paper, flatly denied the allegations by the NDC Constituency Secretary for.

According to him, he has no special interest in the elections.

The NDC MP stated that some aspirants want to endorse their forms by themselves at the party’s office which is illegal.

According to him, the party’s constitution stipulates that the aspirants should rather go to the registered members of the party to endorse their forms.

“They wanted to indulge in illegality and when they eventually faced problems, they decided to turn round to accuse me wrongly.

“I am in Accra now so how can the party’s documents be with me?” he quizzed, adding that the organizer of the party was in possession of the documents.

Adomako Mensah told the paper that the police at Drobonso had called him over the missing party books.

“I told them that I am innocent. The Ashanti Regional branch of the party also called me over the same issue and I told them that the NDC organizer was in possession of the alleged missing party books.”
