Deputy Minister for Railways Development, Hon. Andy Appiah Kubi has admonished the 2020 presidential candidate for the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama to pursue his ambition to lead the country for a second term rather bastardizing the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Madam Jean Mensa.
“Former President John Mahama should stop his attacks on EC chairperson since nothing is going to change for him so far as our electoral laws are concerned”, he said during an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com on Konongo-based radio station.
According to the New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament (MP) for Asante Akim North, despite Mr. Mahama’s criticisms and suggestion, he will still lose the upcoming general elections.
“I doubt NDC will win even if they cry blood. …Mahama has had his time and Ghanaians have no intentions of bringing him back to power”, Hon. Andy Appiah Kubi believes.
The former President is asking the Electoral Commission to publish details of its investigations into the hacking of its electronic results transmission system during the 2016 general elections.
Mr. Mahama said Ghanaians deserve to know circumstances under which the EC’s system was compromised at the time.
“As I speak, I am not aware that the Electoral Commission has carried out any investigation into what compromised their IT system. And even if they have, we the stakeholders, the political parties, have not been briefed on what caused the corruption of the system.”
Commenting on the development however, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Asante Akim North in the Ashanti Region justified why Mr. Mahama was defeated.
“He lost because of incompetence and corruption he superintendent over as president”
