NPP plots to reject results in NDC strongholds
Impeccable information reaching The Herald indicates that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has directed its polling agents, who will be deployed to areas considered as strongholds of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), not to accept the results.
The NPP has adopted an uncompromising stance, and agents, according to NPP insiders, are to refuse appending their signatures to the declared votes for each of the candidates at both polling stations and collation centers after the voting exercise.
Meanwhile, agents of the ruling party are to be violently driven from strongholds of the NPP, especially the Ashanti Region and parts of the Eastern Region, as happened in the Ejisu and elsewhere in the Ashanti Region, during the 2008 elections.
This grand agenda, The Herald learnt, is to prepare the way for the NPP’s own results to be declared by its National Chairman, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, followed by announcing his party as winner of the impending presidential elections.
This paper is also informed that some notable radio stations, radio broadcasters and prominent so called senior journalists have been prepared in advance to hype on electoral fraud in the NDC strongholds as a ploy to invalidate the results from those areas.
The information came through to The Herald, following last Tuesday’s disrespect shown by Nana Akufo-Addo to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, ex-President Rawlings and John Agyekum Kufuor, when he shockingly gave conditions under which the forthcoming elections would be peaceful and acceptable by his party.
At a closed door meeting which Otumfuo held with all the flag bearers, including Nana Addo, he asked them to register their grievances in private, but Nana Addo refused to speak, saying he had no grievances, only to mount the peace pact platform to trade accusation against government and the ruling party.
The NPP flag bearer wanted what he said were deliberate violent attacks on his followers to be investigated by the government and the security agencies to create room for a peaceful election on December 7.
