A chartered accountant, Michael Aryee Ayitey Nii has made a cash donation of a significant portion of his own savings to support the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party’s work in the weija-gbawe constituency.

Michael Aryee Ayitey Nii contested in the 2023 NDC parliamentary primaries in the Weija-Gbawe constituency but lost to Felix Ordartey Lamptey.

On September 10th 2023, he made a cash donation of GHC15,000 to NDC Weija-Gbawe constituency chairman and asked that the money be used to support party activities, specifically for the upcoming limited voter registration and the construction of a party office in that constituency.

According to the businessman, GHC5,000 of the money was to aid the party to fully participate and assist first time voters to register for the voter identification cards and GHC 10,000 of the money was meant to support building of a constituency office project.

He noted that the biggest challenge the NDC in Weija- Gbawe was likely to face during the registration exercise was lack of funds and that inspired him to contribute money to cover some of the cost of the registration exercise.

Speaking during the donation exercise, Mr. Michael Aryee Ayitey Nii called on other individuals in the constituency to also provide money so that the party can help many voters who had previously been unable to register to do so with ease.

 

 

The cash donation comes days after the NDC together with other four political parties sued the Electoral commission of Ghana to stop the upcoming limited voters’ registration exercise.

The five political parties in their writ described the exercise by the Electoral commission as an unlawful and unreasonable decision to limit the voter registration exercise to only their district offices.

They argue that the EC’s decision will deny many eligible voters of their right to be registered as voters and to vote in public elections.

The Electoral commission of Ghana has announced that it will embark on voter registration in all 268 district offices of the commission across the country.

The exercise is expected to start from September 12 to October 2.
