NPP has no case; 2012 election was free and fair - Akua Donkor

The Founder and leader of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Akua Donkor has described as unfounded claims by the New Patriotic Party that the December 7 polls were rigged to favour the incumbent government.

She said the 2012 general election is the most credible and transparent in the history of Ghana therefore the NPP’s claim is a figment of their imagination.

Akua Donkor was reacting to the NPP’s resolve to seek court redress over alleged discrepancies in the presidential results of last Friday’s polls.

The opposition party has blamed the Electoral Commission for the irregularities which characterized the December polls and is confident the Supreme Court will overturn the verdict of the election based on its incontrovertible evidences.

But on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Thursday, Akua Donkor challenged the NPP leadership to invoke the famous deity Antoa Nyamaa on the perpetrators whom they alleged to have rigged the election.

She intimated that the NPP court case against the EC is dead on arrival since according her, nothing untoward went on during the entire voting process.

Madam Donkor indicated that since the NPP party agents at the polling stations signed the red sheets to accept the election results, the party has no case.

The one-time independent candidate for Kwabre West constituency added that given her experience in politics, she believes the NPP is just being destructive.

She urged President John Mahama to focus on his core objective and leave the opposition party to wobble in its shameful defeat.

Meanwhile, Akua Donkor a presidential aspirant who was disqualified by the EC for not completing her application forms says she will contest in the 2016 general elections.

She said the GFP did not have ample time to prepare before the 2012 election but assured Ghanaians the party will be a force to reckon with in the 2016 polls.

Madam Akua Donkor said the GFP has already began its campaign and will pull a surprise in the 2016 elections.
