The Presidential Candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), John Mahama has accused President Akufo-Addo of colluding with the Electoral Commission(EC) to “fraudulently keep the Techiman South seat” for the ruling NPP.
He described this as a clear subversion of the will of the people.
Mr. Mahama made the remarks in a Facebook post to congratulate the Minority Leader and the caucus for stepping out boldly in their protest march to the EC headquarters in defence of the democratic rights of Ghanaians.
He, however, berated the standoff seen on Tuesday when the security agencies blocked the lawmakers from meeting the EC Boss over the Techiman South electoral disputes.
“Tuesday was a sad day for Ghana’s democracy when the Minority Members of Ghana’s Parliament were prevented from presenting a petition to the Electoral Commission in respect of the recent Parliamentary election in Techiman South.
“The conduct of the Electoral Commission (EC), with the tacit support of the incumbent President, Nana Akufo-Addo, using security personnel acting capriciously even towards Members of Parliament is not something anyone could have envisaged in our beloved country in the course of our 4th Republic.
He challenged the EC to come out and show Ghanaians their Results Summary sheet and pink sheets for the Techiman South Constituency to quell the simmering tensions.
