Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is the Member of Parliament for the North Tongu Constituency in the Volta region. He has served as a deputy minister of state under both John Atta Mills and John Dramani Mahama.
After the declaration of Presidential and Parliamentary results on Wednesday, the Electoral Commission of Ghana has been updating its results. This has brought about concerns by the opposition parties, most especially the National Democratic Congress (NDC). To them, their own collation shows they won the majority of the parliamentary seats, of which some are under dispute, as well as their Flagbearer John Dramani Mahama winning the Presidential seat.
With regards to the current and continues update of figures by the Electoral Commission (EC), he (Okudzeto Ablakwa) said that the comedy of errors, figures that defy arithmetic logic and the multiple voodoo explanations which are themselves constantly changing have left the EC’s image in tatters and worsened the credit crisis of the 2020 polls.
Below is the full statement he made;
“Ghana has always had a much-vaunted Electoral Commission not a centre for Electoral Collusion as this present EC has turned out.
The comedy of errors, figures that defy arithmetic logic and the multiple voodoo explanations which are themselves constantly changing have left the EC’s image in tatters and worsened the credit crisis of the 2020 polls.
We have come too far as a constitutional democracy admired by many in the comity of nations to deserve this.
The Jean Mensah – led discredited elections body must not underestimate the threat they have come to represent to our nation’s peace and stability which we must all guard jealously and not undermine.
Clearly, we must brace ourselves for more contestations over the EC’s dubious declaration of multiple results and its subsequent phoney allocation of parliamentary seats. Very interesting days ahead.”
