Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, the National Chairman of the NDC seeking reelection, has debunked claims made by the party’s General Secretary concerning the 2020 election petition.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia, also known as General Mosquito is heard in a viral audio saying the NDC went to court in 2020 without having evidence.
The General Secretary who is contesting Ofosu Ampofo for the Chairmanship positi on says the Chairman’s failure to provide competent IT personnel to provide a better system to collate their results denied the party the evidence to present to the Supreme Court.
The development has called for public backlash on the NDC for wasting time and state resources at the apex court knowing very well that they had no evidence to present, a situation which many assert could have plundered the nation into anarchy.
Speaking on a special election coverage on Onua TV/FM and Akoma FM Thursday night, Mr. Ofosu Ampofo said the NDC wouldn’t have sought legal redress if they had no evidence.
He said the Electoral Commission wouldn’t have changed the election results about five times if the NDC didn’t have a case.
The former National Organiser of the NDC said he is not sure Asiedu Nketia made that statement and even if he did, it is devoid of facts.
“I’m not sure he made that statement because we wouldn’t have gone to court if we didn’t have evidence.
“If he said it that’s not the fact. We grouped young graduates to sum up all the results. This is the election we made the EC change their results about five times. Even now if you ask them the results they will tell you a different thing. So there were chllenges with the system that’s why we went to court. We had a very very strong case before going to court,” he told host, Captain Smart.
