Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Peter Boamah Otokunor says, the NDC does not trust the Electoral Commission(EC) to be neutral in the 2024 general elections.
He has also revealed that, they doubt the security agencies to discharge their duties with professionalism.
The General Secretary aspirant of the NDC made this comments when he appeared on JoyNews’ PM Express.
According to him, the NDC’s distrust for the Electoral Commission (EC) and Securities agencies will put the party on it toes to provide their own security.
“……So we are very clear in our mind that in 2024 we are not getting an Electoral Commission that will be neutral so we would have to be our own Electoral Commission; we’re not going to get security services that will be neutral so we’ll have to be our own security services; we’re not going to get a judiciary that will be neutral and we’re going to be our own judges.
“That is why we have indicated that in 2024 we’re going for a straight win, and we’re not going to dilly-dally about and say we’re going to court and all that. We’re going for the kill at the polling station and we’re going to make sure that we produce the results.
“Because among other things this battle is not a battle for the NDC alone, it’s a battle for the very survival of this country, for the very survival of humanity in Ghana because the kind of plummeting and the kind of deterioration that this nation is going through, if we do not save this country in 2024 we will not have any country after 2024,” he said.
He added that, “Our relationship with the Electoral Commission has made the party even more stronger in our bid towards 2024 because this Electoral Commission is an Electoral Commission that we do not trust and we don’t intend to trust unless maybe some significant changes come up.
He remarked that state institutions such as the judiciary and the security services aligned with the ruling government, and as such it is of the greatest essence that the NDC wins a landslide victory at the polls.
