The leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has stormed the office of the Electoral Commission in the Techiman South constituency demanding a copy of the pink sheet used to declare Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah of the NPP as MP-elect in the Bono Region.
The NDC alleges that the EC manipulated figures in order to declare the NPP candidate, Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah as the winner of the parliamentary election.
However, addressing a press conference in Accra on Friday, the NPP denied the NDC’s allegations, insisting they won the seat fairly.
Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Friday, December 11, 2020, a former Municipal Chief Executive of the Techiman Municipality, Mr Prince Yaw Donyina, claimed that the NDC gave their followers a false hope that they had won the seat.
He said following the NDC’s call, several supporters massed up at the collation centre, which also served as a regional collation centre for the Bono East region, a situation the NPP claimed led to the violence recorded in the area leading to the death of two persons.
“If there is anybody to blame for the Techiman death, it should be the candidate, chairman, and the NDC’s Constituency organizer,” he stated.
