The former Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei, is urging political parties to stop the politicisation of policies initiated by the Electoral Commission.
Speaking in an interview with Asaase News, Professor Adei said it is unfortunate how the opposition party – National Democratic Congress (NDC) – undermines the integrity of the Electoral Commission.
“One of the dangers which Ghana faces is both sides of our politicians and especially when they are in opposition want to do everything to undermine the integrity of the Electoral Commission and I think it’s very unfortunate,” he said.
Professor Adei, however, added that the Ghana Card being the only instrument required to obtain a voter’s ID card and financial transaction was a good move for Ghana.
“I think it is very clear that, coming to a point whereby the Ghana card becomes the only instrument for electoral purposes and financial transaction. It is the best that can happen to Ghana.”
