General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC),Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia has described Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Jean Mensa a ‘beautiful liar’.
Speaking on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show monitored by MyNewsGh.com he insisted that the EC Chairperson is a blatant liar who is just misleading the country.
“We asked her for the reason for the purchase of new machines and she initially said that the machines are obsolete and that they cannot perform the function for which they were bought She again added that the manufacturers of the machines have made it known to her that they have stopped manufacturing those machines and that we cannot get spare parts for the machines because they have stopped the production of those parts”, Asiedu Nketia said.
The NDC General Secretary further revealed that the manufacturers have given the assurance that they are ready and available to assist the EC to fix the machines in case they are faulty to operate effectively.
“We wrote to the company that manufactured the registration kits and the company has responded to our request, saying that it is not true that their machines are obsolete but rather very strong and robust which will serve the purpose for which they were purchased,” He stated.
The General secretary stressed that it was the failure of the EC to show proof of the obsolete machines that pushed the NDC and others who are against the compilation of new voters register to get to the bottom of the matter by writing to the manufacturers.
