Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, National Chairman of the opposition NDC has indicated that his outfit has reviewed all the results the party obtained during the December 2020 elections.

Speaking on Accra-based Asempa FM monitored by GhanaWeb, Ofosu-Ampofo said the party at its recent retreat in the Volta Region reviewed the election figures the party had at the various constituencies during the elections.

“We reviewed election figures which were collated by the party during the elections, we reviewed the results as it was obtained from the constituencies,” he emphasized.

Ofosu-Ampofo explained, “there are challenges and infractions up till now because we didn’t get the opportunity to put the Electoral Commissioner in the box [during the election petition] to question her on some of those actions, there are still hanging questions unanswered”.

He added that the party reviewed several figures which range from region to regions, constituency to constituencies; “we did an analysis of the results as well as so many other things which cannot be disclosed on air, thus for statistical purposes, we reviewed the entire results the party had at both the presidential and parliamentary elections.

“We have had all the facts behind the figures; we have analysed everything. It was a very comprehensive programme with a sleepless night.”
