Akufo-Addo behind NIA registration – NDC’s Kwaku Boahen alleges


Deputy Communications Director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwaku Boahen, is daring the President of the republic Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to order the arrest and also sack the National Identification Authority (NIA) boss, Ken Attafuah, for flouting his directive to stop all public gathering amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Mr. Boahen, is accussing the President for being behind the whole registration that’s why he has kept mute over it.

He also asserts that the act by the NIA puts the whole country at risk of the pandemic.

Speaking on Happy FM’s Epa Hoa Daben show, Mr. Boahen, stated that the President should show leadership and call the NIA boss to order otherwise his effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus will be in vain.

“What at all does the NIA boss want, whose interest is he serving with the continuation of the registration exercise?” he asked.

He added that “if the President is this much concerned, then he should call Prof. Ken Attafuah to order, other than that the NDC will advise itself as a party. I’m not surprised the President is behind this whole registration thing”.

The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), has however, directed NIA to suspend the ongoing mass registration exercises in the Eastern region.
