The NDC alleged that the EC bloated the figures of their political opponents, especially in the Ashanti Region.

They accused the EC of collating figures higher than what was recorded at the regional collation centre so that the Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will win.

The opposition NDC further alleged that the number of votes obtained by President Akufo-Addo had jumped from 1.4 million to over 1.7 million at the national collation center.

But in an interview, the Ashanti Regional EC Director, Benjamin Bannor-Bio insisted the NPP’s Presidential candidate polled 1.7 million votes in the region.

According to him, the elections could not have been rigged to favor any candidate given the transparency of the polls.

With these transparent and verifiable processes, there is no way anyone can do anything to affect the results… In the Ashanti Region, nothing untoward happened. If someone is talking about figures being inflated, I don’t know where it’s coming from.

What I remember is that they (NDC)raised an issue with the Adansi-Asokwa constituency that the figure that they collated is not what we announced. So I asked them to come out with their pink sheet.

They said they didn’t have it and that someone was bringing it. If it is now that they are bringing it, I don’t know

Meanwhile, their agents had signed all the documents… The agents’ refusal to sign the results does not invalidate the results. Losers always complain and that’s how we see it

Mr. Bannor-Bio said.
