One of the representatives of the 2020 NDC presidential candidate at the EC’s national collation centre (strong room) Rojo Mettle-Nunoo says he was misled by some officials at the EC office to sign collation sheets which were certified by his party’s polling agents.
Mr. Nunoo on Friday is the third witness of John Mahama to be cross-examined in the ongoing election petition hearing seeking a re-run of the December 7, polls.
NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia and Dr Michael Kpessah-Whyte who was also at the strong room have already been cross-examined.
In his witness statement submitted to the Supreme Court on Thursday, February 4, Rojo Mettle-Nunoo indicated that he found out from his party officials at the party’s headquarters that the figures presented on the signed documents were not what had been collated.
In paragraph 10 of his witness statement, Rojo Mettle-Nunoo reported that when he was at the EC headquarters as the NDC’s representative, some EC officials told all-party members that “they were correcting errors” on the collation sheets that have been sent to the EC headquarters from the regional collation centres the EC had established.
“At certain times, when we queried certain collation results from the regional levels, they were quick to say, once your representatives have signed, the only relief available to you is to go to court,” parts of his statement read.
Rojo Mettle-Nunoo further stated in paragraph 11 that; “I must admit I was misled by this position of the EC officials into signing the regional collation sheet for the Ashanti Region simply because there was a signature of the agent of the Petitioner at the regional collation centre on that sheet. I later found out from speaking with officials at the party headquarters that what had been presented on the signed collation form was not consistent with a tally of polling station results in the Ashanti region.”
