The former president and presidential candidate of NDC, John Dramani Mahama has said he does not trust the Electoral Commission again.
He spoke in an interview with Woezor TV sighted by Ghanashowbiz.com. He said his level of confidence in the Electoral Commission has reduced. He said:
“We know they are new, so they might not be as competent because they have the buck office and technical people who buck stop you and so they must rely on those people to show them what to do. But those three commissioners have a mind of their own and doing things the way they want. I hear that a lot of people who are very capable and technically competent but because they served under Charlotte Osei’s administration, they have been transferred to the districts, so they don’t have much competence in the headquarters as they should have especially with experienced hands.”
He further continued that he has lost all confidence in the electoral commission and doubt their competence this time.
“That is why for the first time, I begun to doubt the competence of our Electoral Commission. This has been a model commission to the whole of Africa. And I have always felt confident, that we have a commission that on the day will rise up to the occasion. This time, I am afraid, I don’t have that level of confidence,” he added.
