NPP Agents signed statement of polls in Volta - NDC

Ho, Jan. 1, GNA - The Volta Region Branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Thursday said New Patriotic Party (NPP) Agents were not molested and that was they signed all the statements of results in the Region.

A statement Mr Francis Ganyaglo, Volta Regional Secretary of the Party, signed said all NPP "polling agents have signed the statements of poll, both at the Polling Stations and the collation centres throughout the 22 constituencies of the Region".

The statement was issued in reaction to accusation levelled by NPP that its Agents in the Volta Region were molested during the December 28 2008 Presidential Election Runoff.

It described the accusations as "lies and cheap propaganda moves to put dust into the eyes of the good people of Ghana".


The Volta NDC, therefore, urged "all well-meaning Ghanaians, who believe in democracy and sanctity of the voice of the people, to treat the move by the NPP as a sign of a dying elephant".

The statement alerted the Security Agencies about what they said were attempts "to tamper with some ballot boxes in the Volta Region and then call for a recount".
