The National Democratic Congress’ personnel in charge of Election reveals how they intercepted extra ballots from reaching Ashanti Region.
Mr. Elvis Afriyie Ankrah narrated how the NDC party stopped the extra ballots papers on August 31 edition of the Breakfast show on GTV.
He said these extra ballots papers were destroyed after it was seized.
He said even though the elections have ended, he still has the videos which was taken.
He applauded the team that helped in thwarting these papers from reaching its destination.
“One of the printing houses, that is was where Ashanti Region ballots were printed. When the printing is done, they are now packaged and recorded and we all sign for it, then it is sent to the region.
“When it is sent to the region, they will also check and confirm that they have received “x” amount of ballot papers from this region, for this constituency etc. When that is done, then the remaining ballot papers are burnt and thrashed.
“Then they give you a certificate of disposal signed by all the political parties that we have finished printing and these are the ballots that have been disposed of…,” he explained.
According to him, the team had to return from Kumasi to Accra after a mistake was discovered with the PNC candidate’s photo, he said they needed to come purposefully to reprint papers for the affected constituency alone.
“We came back to the printing house and our guys saw a pack of ballot papers, covered, bound in brown envelopes. We checked and there were over one million extra ballots for Ashanti Region alone.”
