The Eastern Regional Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called on the government to arrest the National Identification Authority (NIA) officials who recently undertook a registration exercise in the Eastern Region.
The NIA officials received a lot of backlash from the public when they turned a blind eye to President Akufo-Addo's directive to ban all public gathering as a means to curb the spread of Covid-19.
It took two Ghanaian citizens to sue the NIA and secure a court injunction to stop their activity.
In a release signed by the NDC Regional Youth Organizer for the Eastern Region Okai Mintah said: "At a time when the entire world is committed to dealing with the global pandemic Covid-19, the last thing we should be entertaining is President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo's insatiable quest to guarantee his electoral fortunes by risking Ghanaian lives at all cost.
First it was the National Identification Authority and their recalcitrant posture to the orders of the President for all public gatherings to cease. It took well meaning patriotic Ghanaians to proceed to court and place an injunction on the activities of the NIA in the region.
But it appears the President was not satisfied with the ruling of the Court and has instructed the Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame to file a certiorari application at the Supreme Court to quash the judgement of Justice Daniel Mensah".
