The National Democratic Congress (NDC), says it supports calls from the Electoral Commission for the police to investigate the alleged claims of over-voting and excess printing of one million ballot papers during the 2020 polls.
In a statement by Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the General Secretary of the NDC said, The NDC stands ever prepared to assist in any credible investigation into the matters raised.
“We take note with satisfaction Bossman Asare’s call on the Ghana Police Service to investigate the fact put out by President Mahama, given that President Mahama was on solid grounds when making this statement.
The NDC stands ever prepared to assist in any credible investigation into the matters raised.”
“We are aware however that Bossman Asare’s call is only a red herring because he cannot feign ignorance of the fact that the Police Service is already seized with all the evidence on this matter. On the specific printing of 1 million excess ballot papers and arrest of persons with thumb-printed ballot papers, the Ghana Police Service carried out the arrests and therefore should be providing updates on the status of investigations to the population. All that Bossman Asare needs to do is to call on the Attorney General to ask the police to prosecute the offenders,” he added.
