Chairman of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo believes the only thing President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has wasted energies and wisdom to do since he took over of power on January 7, 2017, is how to rig the 2020 elections.
“Upon assumption of office in the year 2017, president Akufo-Addo immediately set in motion his rigging agenda,” he told the media at the party’s headquarters.
According to him, this necessitated the setting up of the National Identification Authority to issue ID cards which is one of the identification cards that will be accepted during the impending compilation of the new voters’ register.
“The NIA was step up with a mandate to issue national ID cards and manage the national identification system as per the national identification act [but] it does appear that the Jean Mensa led EC and NIA are only interested in rigging the 2020 elections for President Nana Akufo-Addo.”
He noted that the plot has taken place over a period of time and there was, therefore, the need to make the Ghanaian populace aware of the deadly agenda by governing NPP.
He added that it is the Electoral Commissioner’s mission to ensure the NPP is re-elected into office and this can be realized from the insistence on compiling new voters register at all cost.
“Ladies and gentlemen, election rigging is not a one-day event. It takes place over time through systemic manipulation of processes leading to election day…the NPP is desperately scheming to rig the 2020 elections and hold onto power.”
“We have long raised red flags of the sinister rigging agenda of the Jean Mensa-led-EC and the dangers it portends for our beloved country…it appears Jean Mensa’s mission is to please President Akufo-Addo and ensure his re-election.”
