The trial of the national chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, and the NDC’s deputy communications officer, Anthony Kwaku Boahen, began yesterday amid multiple controversies.

At the high court in Accra today the national chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, will be taken through major processes to determine his guilt or otherwise in a crucial criminal case.

What was supposed to be a civil and peaceful protest yesterday, led by the National Democratic Congress to demand that the Electoral Commission rethink its decision to compile a fresh voters’ register before this December’s general election, turned into an orgy of insults hurled at key figures in the Electoral Commission (EC), as well as President Akufo-Addo and other leading members of the governing New Patriotic Party.
