Police in the Western Region apprehended Bernard Afful, the Mpohor Constituency Deputy Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), for allegedly enlisting individuals below the legal voting age in the ongoing limited voter registration drive.

Afful, aged 59, was nabbed alongside Rojer Miller, 33, proprietor of Voice of Christ Preparatory School in Mpohor, who allegedly aided Afful in the scheme.

Acting on a tip-off, law enforcement officers arrested Miller and Afful at the school premises, seizing five voter ID cards belonging to underage students.

Both suspects confessed to sending these students for registration. This incident sheds light on the NDC’s contradictory stance, as they’ve opposed electoral reforms while employing methods like the guarantor system, which raises concerns about its integrity.
