Manasseh Azure Awuni, a freelance Investigative Journalist has questioned the Petitioner in the ongoing Election Petition at the Supreme Court, why its representatives at the ‘Strong Room’ of the Electoral Commission (EC) had to heed to the instructions of the Chairperson of the 1st Respondent when the representatives of the party knew the EC was not on their side.
According to him, the NDC and NPP will miss no opportunity to steal in the election if they were offered the least opportunity, “so, in that arena, trust was non-existent. Yet, in the most critical part of the process, both of you left the Strongroom.”
In a post on his Facebook timeline, Manasseh Azure Awuni asks, “If you had trusted EC and its chairperson, would you have been there in the first place? If you knew that, in your absence, everything would be done accurately and honestly, why didn’t you rest at home and go to sign when collation was done?”
He continued: “The unintended consequence of this petition is that it has exposed the inefficiencies of the petitioner in protecting their votes.
“It happened in 2016. And it happened in 2020. It may happen again in 2024 and forever if your followers don’t tell you the simple truth—that you need to sit up and prepare more seriously before the next crucial December 7.”
