NPP denies the transfer of votes of 71 soldiers to Effutu.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) claimed that Alexander Afenyo-Markin, the Majority Leader and sitting Member of Parliament, had brought in 71 soldiers from outside the constituency to shift votes to the area. The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Effutu seat in the Central region has refuted these claims.

This follows the NDC’s accusations that the NPP was busing individuals from outside Effutu in order to sabotage the voting process and cause mayhem.

The NDC has been pushed to produce proof by the NPP, which has characterized the charges as unfounded.

Rather, the NDC leadership was charged by the NPP with masterminding a plot to sabotage the vote transfer procedure and scare away prospective voters.

NPP Communications Officer Ellis Otabil stated during a press conference that the only groups casting ballots for Effutu are indigenous people, students, and displaced workers.

“We want to set the record straight that whoever comes to Winneba to transfer his votes is either an indigene or native of Effutu and students alike are those who are transferring their votes to Effutu. Workers who have been transferred and are staying in Winneba are those who have transferred their votes to Effutu and therefore it wouldn’t lie in his mouth to send warnings to them that they cannot transfer their votes to vote democratically.“
