Paul Adom Otchere of Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana fame has disclosed that NPP was churning out electoral figures to some media personalities and journalists to project President Nana Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 presidential election.
This comes after the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) had subjected the media to intense criticism for their role in projecting NPP”s Akufo Addo as the winner of the just-ended 2020 polls.
Paul postulated on his show that he would be exploring and investigating claims by the opposition NDC that the December 7, 2020 elections were flawed.
He explained, “…The New Patriotic Party began the night of elections, we were in this studio […] and we all saw that the New Patriotic Party had set up a collation system by which they were collating the results of the election and at each point, they will send information across the board. I got some of the information, I believe other journalists did. Different people got it, and they will tell you that they are at 70 per cent reported pink sheets from across the country and this is what they are seeing.”
He added: “In fact, as far as their system was concerned, their presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo took an early lead in the election collation processes. He led the system for a very long time and his lead began to dwindle a little bit towards the end and they were still confident that President Akufo-Addo would obtain a majority of 50 per cent plus one (sic), which is the constitutional requirement to have won a first-round presidential victory.”
