NDC parliamentary candidate Kwamena Minta Nyarku disqualified by EC from contesting for MP

The NDC parliamentary candidate who is also a lecturer at the university of cape coast Mr Kwamena Minta Nyarku has been disqualified by the electoral commission of Nkafua from getting a voter ID card and hence contesting as an MP in that electoral area. This has become a sad news for the NDC since he was elected to contest in the parliamentary seat for the NDC.

The problem started when he went to Nkafua registration center to register for a new card as issued by the electoral commission. He was able to provide all his information when an NPP member stood up and made an allegation that Kwamena Minta is not supposed to register at the Nkafua registration center. This caused a confusion over there and the EC set up a committee to investigate on the allegation.

The NPP member made some evidences that the house number he provided is not even his and that the house itself is not for him. Kwamena Minta defended himself that he is not the rightful owner of the house but he officially got it from somebody.

The committee asked him to provide the necessary documents which shows that the house is for him but he was not able to provide them.

After a final conclusion by the committee, the MP aspirant has been banned from getting his card and also he won't be able to contest as an MP in this coming elections.

He was advised by Richard Àmbamso that in case he is not happy with the decision, he can go to the high court and seek for appeal.

He was supposed to go and register at the university of cape coast registration center but he rather chose Nkafua which has led to his disqualification.
