Moses Abor, a candidate in the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Ayawaso Central parliamentary primary, has charged Henry Quartey, the regional minister for Greater Accra, with organizing schemes to deploy unapproved security personnel to rig the next election.
Abor, the former NPP Greater Accra Youth Organizer, said in a written report filed with the Inspector General of Police that Henry Quartey planned to use “illegal security personnel” to sway the vote in his favour.
According to Abor, the Regional Minister intends to make use of those who work for him in the Ghana Police Service as well as private security guards.
According to Abor’s accusations, the goal is to intimidate and harass delegates who are thought to be endorsing his candidacy on January 27, the day of voting.
Abor also claimed that Henry Quartey and his associates had hatched a complex plot to illegally pack vote boxes with pre-marked ballots in an attempt to interfere with the election results.
Moses Abor’s whole comment is seen below.
Regarding the aforementioned topic, I, Moses Abor, am an aspirant Member of Parliament from the Ayawaso Central Constituency (henceforth referred to as the “Constituency”).
The Greater Accra Regional Minister and Member of Parliament for the Ayawaso Central Constituency has brought this to my attention. To sway the results of the January 27, 2024, election in his favour, Hon. Henry Quartey, a contender in the forthcoming parliamentary primary in the same constituency, plans to use unauthorized security workers.
The Greater Accra Regional Minister plans to use Ghana Police Service members who are loyal to him as well as private security guards to intimidate and harass delegates he believes are my supporters on the specified day. I also have evidence that he plans to send out goons to steal ballots during the counting process, and if things don’t go his way, they could burn them.
My team and I have successfully thwarted the Regional Minister’s ambitious scheme to cram his thumb-printed vote papers into the ballot boxes while voting is still going on. We do not seek to break the law on our own as law-abiding individuals. We therefore petition the Inspector General of Police (IGP), to take a special interest in the elections of Ayawaso Central and deploy professional police personnel to the venue on the voting day to avoid clashes and ensure the election is free and fair
