God is watching your diabolic plans – Mahama tells Wontumi

President John Mahama has expressed disappointment in what he believes are underhand tactics employed by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to try and deny the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) victory in the general elections.

As part of his last campaigns, counting down to the December 7 election, in the Brong Ahafo Region Monday, he stressed his trust in God to expose any diabolic plans hatched by the NPP.

He made particular reference to reports that fake ballot papers thumb printed for president John Dramani Mahama had been found in a hotel room in the Ashanti Region.

The NPP Ashanti regional chairman Bernard Antwi Boasiako who led the police to the Madison Lodge.

President John Mahama referred to unconfirmed reports that an NPP member booked the hotel room and kept the fake ballot papers there.

"They took fake ballot papers into a hotel room and later turned around to accuse the NDC of trying to rig the elections," Mahama said.
The President cautioned the NPP that "God is not asleep and he sees everything we do in the dark."

Sharing his own observation about the NPP campaign, President Mahama said the NPP has consistently worked to discredit the Electoral Commission (EC).
"If you observe their strategy you can see they want to create trouble... every day, they are insulting the EC," he said.

The NDC Presidential Candidate said the NPP wants to pollute the minds of Ghanaians that the only way he can win the 2016 general elections is if the EC rigged it for him.

They want to find a way to reject the results if the NDC wins, the President told his supporters.

President John Mahama has been urging NDC supporters not to give in to any provocation no matter what happens on election day because it's all part of a ploy to create disaffection against the governing party.

"I know they are spoiling for a fight but I am urging all our supporters... don't let anybody provoke you, don't let anybody provoke you," he said at a rally at Nalerigu in the Northern Region Saturday.

He added that "there will be a deliberate attempt to provoke you so that there will be trouble and then the international community and everybody will say the Ghanaian election was marred by violence."
