Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Kweku Baako Junior has rubbished claims by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) that the government is manipulating the Electoral Commission and the National Identification Authority to rig the 2020 general elections in favour of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He explained that the facts on the ground and the turnout of events make it difficult to come to terms with the claims of the opposition party.

The mere fact that the President did not classify the two institutions under essential services during the period of intense restrictions alone makes a complete mockery of their allegations and shows the President has no interest in undermining the electoral process, the veteran journalist suggested.

The NDC has persistently attacked the EC and the NIA alleging the two institutions have schemed to reduce the voter population in their strongholds on the electoral register citing the NIA’s failure to capture its targeted number of Ghanaians during the Ghana Card registration exercise and the EC’s insistence on using only passports and Ghana Card as basis to prove citizenship.

Kweku Baako, addressing the issue on Peace FM Wednesday, was not the least convinced by the election rigging conspiracy claims by the NDC against the government.

He believes that President Akufo-Addo could have done everything within his power to keep the institutions running amid the pandemic if he indeed had sinister intent.

“Sometimes I wonder, all the conspiracy theories that the Akufo-Addo Administration or the President himself is in league with the EC; you know, nothing stopped him from adding them to the exempted agencies from day one if he wanted to.

“Parliament would have approved it all the same. Upon an acute reflection, if indeed the conspiracy theory is to be pushed to the furthest level they are seeking to do, the administration might as well added EC and NIA to it and say move on, the law is behind you” he said.

“But perhaps, they didn’t do that because there was no inherent need or any motivation to unleash these agencies out there to execute an agenda partisan and parochial in their interest. That is the way I see it; good faith,” the ace journalist maintained.
