Chief Executive Officer of IMANI Centre for Policy and Education, Mr. Franklin Cudjoe has dropped a serious prediction about how his outfit warned Ghanaians about the Election Petition.
According to Mr. Franklin Cudjoe, it all started in January 2020 when he boldly warned Ghanaians about the conduct of the electoral commission and how it can affect the outcome of the election.
Mr. Franklin Cudjoe indicates that what is happening in the Supreme Court is not news because he was aware of the aftermath of the election.
He adds that the Electoral Commission consistently lied about the facts of the old biometric system due to their plan to purchase a new one at all costs.
According to Mr. Franklin Cudjoe, the entire technology and the 2020 general election cost the country about 150 million United States dollars.
He believes such an amount could have been saved if the old voter register had been maintained. Franklin Cudjoe noted that the process through which the contract was even awarded is questionable.
He believes all these contributed to the current situation of the election ending in the Supreme Court of Ghana.
“This was how it all started. We kept warning Ghanaians as far back as January 2020”. Mr. Franklin Cudjoe wrote on his personal Facebook wall.
Mr. Franklin Cudjoe added an over eight-point caution statement his outfit issued in January 2020 before the conduct of the 2020 general election.
He notes that the Electoral Commission of Ghana engaged in Dangerous untruths about the processes leading to the election.
The 2020 election has ended in the Supreme Court. This was after the flag bearer of the NDC, Mr. John Dramani Mahama filed to contest the presidential results which declared Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo as the winner of the election.
He has since raised series of issues about the real results of the election and accused the Electoral Commission of deliberately rigging the election for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.
Mr. John Dramani Mahama is urging the court to annul the entire presidential results, since none of the candidates secured the 50.1 percentage required.
Mr. Franklin Cudjoe has since raised series of issues about the election on various platforms and has accused the Electoral Commission of refusing to listen to advice.
