The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has hit back at the opposition NDC for saying that the EC led by Madam Jean Mensah is conniving with the National Identification Authority to rig the upcoming general elections for their presidential candidate, Nana Akufo Addo.
Speaking at a press conference in response to allegations of voter suppression and rigging, Mr Mac Manu said the NDC is making excuses in anticipation of its defeat.
“NDC must be reminded that the NPP, as an opposition party, beat the NDC in 2026 and by the largest margin ever in Ghana’s history against an incumbent President in Ghana’s history.
“It is not the fault of any Ghanaian that the NDC chose to bring back as their presidential candidate for 2020, the very man at whose ahands the NDC suffered their biggest defeat in history”.
“It is not the fault of NPP that the NDC chose to bring back as their 2020 presidential candidate, the very same man who gave Ghana the worst economic growth performance since 1994”.
“We do not need the EC to rig an election in our favour. A government that has put 1.3 million children to school, who, if NDC were in power, would be on the streets, does not need an election to be rigged in its favour.
“President Nana Addo Dankwa Akudo-Addo continues to show leadership and commitment to the welfare of ordinary Ghanaians and it is this which gives us the confidence that the Ghanaian people will recognise his leadership and performance and allow the party that knows how to deliver, to continue.”
