The National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Salam Mustapha has issued a warning to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) that they will not tolerate any attempts to disrupt the ongoing limited voter registration process.

Mustapha claimed to have gathered intelligence suggesting that the opposition party was plotting to derail the registration exercise.

Speaking during an interview on Okay FM's Ade Akye Abia Programme, Salam Mustapha called on the youth to remain vigilant and actively participate in the voter registration exercise, which commenced on Tuesday, September 12, 2023.

The Electoral Commission had scheduled the limited voter registration to include all individuals who have reached the age of 18 or have not previously registered for a voter ID card.

However, the exercise has stirred mixed reactions, with some individuals opposing the decision to hold the exercise at the district offices of the Electoral Commission instead of the electoral areas for easy access.

The NDC and other opposition political parties filed a suit at the Supreme Court to challenge the exercise.

In a reaction to these developments, Salam Mustapha expressed concerns about potential disruptions.

"We have uncovered a plot by the NDC to disrupt the registration exercise," Mustapha claimed during the interview.

He calls for the enforcement of law and order during the registration process, stating, "The Police must arrest anybody who acts unlawfully to affect the voter registration."
