Mr. Richard Ahiagbah, the director of communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has responded to rumours that he cast a vote in the general elections of 2020 despite not having his name in the voter registration list.

Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Neat FM on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, Richard Ahiagbah stated that even though he had a valid voter identification card, which was issued to him after he completed his registration in 2020 but his name was not in the register when he went to vote.

He confirmed he voted in 2020, even though my name was not on the voters’ register.

“I voted in the 2020 election. You have to ask officials of the EC why I was able to vote even though my name was not in the register.

“Because I have a voter’s ID card which bears my name. I got it in 2020 when we were asked to register for a new voters’ register. I have the card, and it has the polling station number where I have always been voting,” he said in the Twi dialect.

He added, “I went to queue to vote on 7 December 2020, and when it got to my turn, the officials said my name was not on the register. So, I asked why my details were not on the register and showed them my documents.”

The NPP communications director added that the EC official on the election day agreed that he should be allowed to vote, but he does not know why they allowed him to vote even though his name was not on the voters’ register.

He added that only officials of the EC can explain why he was allowed to vote even though his name was not in the 2020 electoral register.

Richard Ahiagbah’s remarks come after he was accused by members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of committing the crime of double registration when he attempted to register at a Ketu South electoral registration centre on Saturday, 11 May 2024.

A video of the incident, showed a chaotic registration centre with some NDC agents being heard in the background questioning how Richard Ahiagbah was able to vote in the 2020 presidential election if he was not a registered voter.

 

 

After the incident, purported evidence emerged, showing that Ahiagbah voted in the 2020 election, albeit without his name printed on the voter roll.

A photo of the voter register used during the election also showed that the details of Ahiagbah, including his supposed voter identification number, name, age, date of birth, and polling station code, were written by an electoral official at the bottom of the register with a pen before he proceeded to cast his vote.
