The EC must really be confused–because the state institution is being accused by both the NPP and NDC for being prepared to rig the election for the other.
While the NPP strongly claims the EC cannot be trusted and therefore must be watched with an eagle eye–as they are aware the EC is in bed with NDC, Kofi Adams, NDC’s National Campaigner Coordinator has accused the same EC for conniving with the NPP to rig the elections.
The NDC says it has intercepted a leaked recording that proves that some leading members of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP), including Mike Oquaye and Lord Commey, attempted to connive with some Election officers to rig the upcoming polls.
The party at a media briefing on Monday said it will report the matter to the Electoral Commission (EC) and the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to take swift action.
Kofi Adams who addressed the press on Monday said “we should not be surprised that in 2016, a desperate political party like the NPP will be engaging in this acts. As a responsible party, we will this afternoon lodge an official complaint to the Electoral Commission so that a position is taken on their officers who are involved in all these activities. We will also be submitting these recordings to the CID a the police headquarters to have a thorough investigation into these matters and all those involved will be dealt with.”
He continued: “We are committed to a few fair and transparent elections. We are very much aware that our candidate, has lived up to expectations. You need not walk far to see a development in the area.”
