Mike Oquaye conniving with EC to rig elections – NDC alleges

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it has intercepted a leaked recording that proves that some leading members of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP), including Mike Oquaye, attempted to connive with some Election officers to rig the upcoming polls.

The party at a media briefing on Monday said it will report the matter to the Electoral Commission (EC) and the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to take swift action.

With barely 48-hours to Ghana’s general elections, both the NPP and the NDC have been engaged in accusations and counter accusations over plans to rig the general elections.

The NPP had earlier on Monday said it had discovered several ballots thumb-printed for President Mahama in a guest house in the Ashanti Regional capital.

But according to the National Organizer of the NDC, Kofi Adams who addressed the press on Monday said the party has compelling evidence to prove the NPP has plans of rigging the elections.

He said the NPP wants to undermine the electoral process with its negative schemes.
