Controversial Radio Presenter, Blakk Rasta born Abubakar Ahmed has chided Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for saying he does not want to be a President out of a crooked or flawed election.
President Akufo-Addo made this known when he submitted his nomination forms to the Electoral Commission (EC) today, Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
He expressed hopes in the processes put in place by the EC in the build-up to the general elections to enable Ghanaians to elect a President of their will.
“We are hoping that the arrangements that have been put in place will enable the Ghanaian people to manifest their will on the 7th of December and choose the next government of the Fourth Republic. So far, the work of the Commission has given considerable confidence for the majority of people in our country. With you [Jean Mensa] and the leadership of the Electoral Commission, are people who are committed to free, fair, credible and transparent elections.”
“I am not interested in any crooked results. I don’t want to be a President elected by deceit. I look forward to a contest that will be fairly conducted so that if indeed by the grace of the almighty, I am again the choice of the Ghanaian people, it will be one that will be free and open elections.”
But speaking on Accra-based Zylofon FM monitored by mynewsgh.com, Blakk Rasta noted that the processes leading to the compilation of the new voters’ register and the brutality from the vigilante wing of the New Patriotic Party is an indication that the elections will be crooked.
According to him, what even saddens him is the fact that government could not even wait for the country to be out of the woods with the deadly COVID-19 but went ahead to work on the compilation of a new voters register.
Describing the President’s admonishing on the Electoral Commission to organise a free and fair election, Blakk Rasta indicated that there are claims of names which have been expunged from the register and cannot be accounted for by the commission which is paid to ensure fairness.
To him, the election 2020 will not be fair and the President is aware of that so he should not act like the elections are going to be fair.
