National Organizer of the governing NPP, Sammi Awuku has advised the opposition NDC to discard their unfounded conspiracy theory and focus on marketing their flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama ahead of this year’s elections.

According to Mr. Awuku, the NDC’s claims of collusion by the EC, NIA and the NPP to rig the 2020 polls is almost impossible taking into consideration how modernized and open Ghana’s elections have become.

Given this, he added that it will take a miracle for the EC Chairperson, Jean Mensah to rig the 2020 elections as wrongly conceived by the NDC, a situation he described will be an “accident in history.”

Speaking on Accra-based Peace FM on Friday, May 23, 2020, Sammi Awuku observed that “in today’s Ghana, it will be a miracle and an accident in history for the Chairperson of the EC and her Commissioners to rig the elections for a political party. It will be difficult. What you have to do is to be vigilant at the polling station to know that what is declared there is what you have.”

He also urged the NDC to focus on marketing their flagbearer, John Mahama, and put in place systems and mechanisms to police the ballot boxes as the NPP did in 2016.

“Work hard. Sell your candidate. Market your candidate. We (NPP) make sure to police the ballot. We make sure that the votes tally with our results and then we ensure that our collation is timely. So, we compare our results with the results that the Electoral Commission announces. NDC, I can confidently tell you they couldn’t collate their results in 2016. When you take the Kwesi Botchwey report, it’s one of the reasons because they didn’t even know where they won and where they lost, and you can’t blame the EC for your inability to open your eyes,” the national organizer advised.
