The leader and founder of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Hon. Akua Donkor has challenged the Flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom about his claims that the results of the Presidential and Parliamentary elections are inaccurate.
Hon. Akua Donkor who was a presidential aspirant, was disqualified by the Electoral Commission for her failure to complete her application forms. She claimed that her rallying behind the PPP was part of the reasons for the PPP placing third in the just ended elections.
She said the allegation by the PPP flagbearer that the election was rigged is false and if he still insists that it is rigged then despite being a Catholic, both of them should consult the deity Antoa Nyama to determine the truth about the allegations made by Dr. Nduom.
According to her, the elections results are clear, so his allegation does not hold an iota of truth, so Ghanaians should not believe what he is saying. She made this challenge when she spoke to the Daily Democrat in an interview in Kumasi.
She described Paa Kwesi Nduom as a bad man who wants war for Ghana. She said Ghanaians should disregard his falsehood which according to her is politically motivated. This country will not be plunged into war, she added.
Madam Donkor insisted that the elections were free and fair and without any intimidation or rigging, so she was shocked when the PPP went public to protest that some votes belonging to the NPP was transferred to favor the Presidential candidate of the NDC.
According to her, every political party had representatives at the polling stations to supervise the elections including the media to avoid misunderstanding after the declaration of the results, meaning there was a PPP representative at every collation centre across the country, yet they are claiming their votes were stolen and added to those of another political party.
She claimed that reliable information available to her from sources close to the PPP indicate that Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom and the defeated NPP led by Nana Akufo Addo held discussions to agree to protest that they have been cheated. “This is never true and if any of them feel that their claim is justifiable, then the only way is to invoke Antoa Nyamaa” she said.
She accused Dr. Nduom of not respecting the choice of the people which is the voice of God. “Ghana is the only country we have and we cannot afford to lose the gains the nation has chalked in democracy in Africa and the international community because of unnecessary protests”.
Hon. Donkor noted that Ghana is a peaceful country so it would be better if both parties: the NPP and the PPP withdraw their protest and concede defeat.
