Mahama displayed ignorance when he said elections are won at polling stations – NPP Gen Sec

NPP General Secretary, John Boadu,

General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) John Boadu says John Mahama continues to display gross incompetence in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) with his comments even in opposition.

He said Mr Mahama’s latest admission that elections must be won at polling stations is a display of ignorance.

According to John Boadu, this should have been known by NDC’s 2020 Presidential Candidate, who has been an Assembly member, Member of Parliament, Deputy Minister, Minister, Vice President and President before.

The comments of NPP’s scribe in an interview on UTV on Friday, September 17 comes in the wake of the former president’s charge to members of his party to be extra vigilant in the 2024 elections.

He insisted that the 2020 elections taught the NDC a lot of lessons including making sure that the outcome is not taken to the Supreme Court to determine.

To that end, he will even be a Polling Agent during the elections if need be.

“Let’s ensure the figures from the various polling stations are a true reflection of the results that will be declared,” Mr Mahama said on the second leg of his nationwide Thank You tour.

“I have decided to be a polling agent in future elections.”

But John Boadu believes Mr Mahama should have known about this a long time ago particularly when it came up after the 2012 elections.

He said an election petitioner cannot have a case when they cannot account for the votes they polled, insinuating that Mr Mahama could not tell the Supreme Court how many votes he polled from the 2020 presidential elections.
