Don’t allow NDC to cheat us again – Jake to NPP

A former Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Jake Obetsebi Lamptey has charged the rank and file of the opposition party to ensure that the party is not cheated at the polls again.

The man who was among those who petitioned the Supreme Court over alleged irregularities in the 2012 presidential election insists that the good people of Ghana will not forgive the party if they allow another stolen verdict in election 2016.

He was speaking at a rally in Tema where he also urged the NPP to desist from internal fights and focus on winning election 2016 to bring prosperity to all Ghanaians.

“Part of my mind kept on going and saying that it’s true that we have this cheating going on but it’s also very true that we allowed ourselves to be cheated. When you go out, you will see overwhelming support. We have a responsibility to the children and the children’s children of our country to make sure we do not waste this support,” he said.

Jame Obetsebi Lamptey again charged the party members to resist the situation when “we go to the polls, the people of Ghana vote for Nana Addo, vote for the NPP and Mahama and the NDC are declared the winners.”
