A leading member of the pressure group Occupy Ghana, Sydney Casely-Hayford, has accused the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of "manipulating the voters' register" for years.

According to Casely-Hayford, the electoral fraud dates back at least two decades to the times of former President Jerry John Rawlings, who founded of the party in 1990s as Ghana transitioned from a military dictatorship (led by Rawlings) to a democratic society.

“My theory is that, over the years, the NDC had started, even as far back as Jerry Rawling’s time, manipulating the voters’ register...Extra numbers that were on the voters’ register and that have been on the voters’ register for decades, were all padded numbers.

This is where I believe sincerely that the NDC deceived themselves into thinking that they had those million plus votes,” he said.

He made the allegations on the news and current affairs programme, The Big Issue, which is aired on Accra-based Citi FM. According to him, he could 'prove it statistically' and that the allegations are based on 'private correspondence', Citifmonline reports

He went further to criticise the former administration for his governance record.

“I think that the NDC after so many decades of running this country has started believing their own lies. For a long time they kept trumpeting their success stories and we would refuse to listen to whole facts. Even at the time when the economy was slipping and many people were venting, they still wanted you to believe that everything was fine. When they went to the IMF and we commented, they still wouldn’t listen.”

Casely-Hayford together with Occupy Ghana have been seen by many outsiders as sympathetic to the New Patriotic Party, although they described themselves as non-partisan. Some of its leading members have taken up positions within the new NPP government.
