EC Errors: Mahama drags Akufo-Addo to the gutters

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has come under fire from former president John Dramani Mahama over several appointments to the Ghanaian Electoral Commission.

The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) drew attention to the fact that President Akufo-Addo often assigns people with political experience to positions of trust that demand objectivity and neutrality.

Mahama noted that the election management body now includes former NPP staffers who worked as communicators, IT specialists, and other positions.

He voiced worry that these people might not hold fair and transparent elections for the approaching 2024 presidential and legislature seats.

“This president is appointing politically exposed individuals to positions of trust where they should remain neutral and non-partisan. Thus, former party communicators and IT experts are today Commissioners of the Electoral Commission. How can we expect them to be impartial in their duties?” Mahama questioned.

“People who were patrons of TESCON on campuses are now Commissioners of the Electoral Commission. We must awaken the nation’s conscience to ensure that the right actions are taken, reflecting the true will of the people,” he added.

Mahama pledged to bring attention to any issues with the voting process and underlined the importance of being vigilant in the run-up to the election.

In order to guarantee justice, he also urged the church to keep a careful eye on the circumstances.

In order to stop the EC from working with the government to rig the elections, he asked NDC members to continue being watchful and assertive.

He urged the church to remain vigilant and make sure that the right protocols are followed.

EC Error:

The Ghanaian Electoral Commission (EC) has declared that it has fixed mistakes in the infographics it distributed to the public in order to provide them with the most recent statistics on the Limited Voter Registration Exercise.

The EC acknowledged that it was an error and claimed that the Greater Accra Region statistics were replicated for the Upper East Region, which was not intended to be the case.

The European Commission promised to devise strategies to prevent them from making the same mistakes in future exercises and to protect their reputation in the public eye.
