His critique is borne out of the brouhaha surrounding the Electoral Commission's resolve to use the identification cards produced by the National Identification Authority (NIA) as a prerequisite tool during the registration exercise for new voter’s identification cards.
“What is the motive behind the idea that apart from the Ashanti Region, none of the regions in the country has been able to register more people with the NIA Card?” the NDC General Secretary stated on Okay FM on Wednesday, May 20.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia further alleged that majority of Ghanaians have not received their NIA Cards.
“How can you claim to be practicing democracy when in fact you are disenfranchising some people . . . and if someone comes to warn you that what you are doing is a recipe for coup d’état, you rather say that the person is inciting the public,” he bemoaned.

He, however, warned against the use of intimidation by the Akufo-Addo government to suppress the will of Ghanaians for demanding their democratic rights to take part in the upcoming general elections.
