SOME UNHAPPY members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti region have invoked curses over the ongoing voter registration exercise, which started on Tuesday.
These aggrieved NDC members were said to have used schnapps and eggs to curse people, who they suspected have intentions of carrying out illegal activities during the voter registration exercise.
The NDC members particularly prayed to some supposed powerful river gods to instantly strike dead people that would try to indulge in illegalities during the registration period.
Interestingly, these NDC members, who are clearly not ashamed about their actions, even had the audacity of recording their cursing act on video. It has since gone viral on social media.
Isham Alhassan, the Ashanti Regional Organizer of the NDC, who claims to have watched the cursing video, said he could not readily state where the cursing incident took place in the region.
He, however, stated emphatically that those that invoked the curses were NDC members even though he does not know their names, stressing that he does not see anything wrong with the action taken by the NDC members.
“I have watched the video and they cursed anyone that would try to register minors or try to block eligible Ghanaians that qualify to register from registering in the Ashanti region”, Isham Alhassan said.
He added “I have watched the video and I can state that those that issued the curses are NDC members. If they are not NDC members, they would never use schnapps and eggs to openly issue the curses”.
Explaining why he refused to lambast the people that issued the curses, Isham Alhassan said the NDC is a big political party with people from diverse backgrounds, including traditionalists.
“These people are clearly traditionalists and by their tradition and beliefs, they believe in cursing therefore I have no right to condemn their actions”, the NDC Organizer said on Nhyira fm in Kumasi.
