Voter Identification number of my running mate duplicated-Mahama
The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr. John Dramani Mahama has disclosed at a press briefing that the voter identification number of his running mate Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang was duplicated when she went to the exhibition centre to check her name.
Addressing a press briefing on the integrity of the voter register today, Thursday, September, 24, 2020, Mr Mahama said the duplication was part of cases of duplication of card numbers that the party recorded at 14 centres of the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem constituency in the Central Region.
“One of such cases involved my running mate Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang. She went to her centre to check her name, she sent somebody to check her name and they said she had to come herself because her number was duplicated, somebody else had the same number as her and so she had to come and collect the card and take it to the district office and to go and sort it out. And so, she had to drive from Komenda to Elmina where the district office is and at Elmina, they took the old card from her and destroyed it and replaced it with a new one”.
Mr Mahama noted “we in the NDC have exhibited restraint at all times in this electoral process, even now we are committed to doing so. But we will not accept the result of a flawed election.”
He went on “we will certainly not look on, neither will we shirk our civic responsibility and allow the EC, whether it intends to or sheer incompetence to usurp the peoples mandate in the December 7 polls.”
“We want to see fairness, transparency, and integrity in the process leading up to the elections. The EC will take responsibility and act in good faith to resolve them,” he added.
