The leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has stormed the office of the Electoral Commission in the Techiman South constituency demanding a copy of the pink sheet used to declare Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah of the NPP as MP-elect in the Bono Region.
However, addressing a press conference in Accra on Friday, the NPP denied the National Democratic Congress’s allegations, insisting they won the seat fairly.
Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Friday, December 11, 2020, a former Municipal Chief Executive of the Techiman Municipality, Mr Prince Yaw Donyina, claimed that the National Democratic Congress gave their followers a false hope that they had won the seat.
He said following the National Democratic Congress ’s call, several supporters massed up at the collation centre, which also served as a regional collation centre for the Bono East region, a situation the NPP claimed led to the violence recorded in the area leading to the death of two persons.
“If there is anybody to blame for the Techiman death, it should be the candidate, chairman and the NDC’s Constituency organizer,” he stated.
