Video footage of a supposed soldier voting for President Akufo-Addo in the ongoing special voting exercise has been traced to a bus stop at Dome Kwabenya.
It is emerging that the supposed military officer is a New Patriotic Party (NPP) fanatic within the Dome-Kwabenya area and that he had thumb printed the ballot near a commercial loading station in the Constituency which also happens to be a stronghold of the NPP.
In the amateur video, the man is heard loudly cursing the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in fluent Twi and thumb printing near Akufo-Addo’s photo.
“John Mahama, you think we the soldiers we are fools? 2016, you gave us one dollar, and we voted against you. 2020, you have allowed Sammy Gyamfi to be telling us imbecilic things. You Mahama you will be last again. You see, you will be last again. I’m thumb printing again, four more for Nana,” the supposed soldier is heard saying.
A polling station code that is displayed is C0801 – 050883.
Interestingly, the background of the place where the supposed voter thumbprints the ballot is filled with noise, including car horns, in the first telltale sign that the place is not a polling station.
The supposed voter is also heard disparaging Mahama very loudly, something that the NDC’s Polling agents and the EC officials could not have permitted.
A cheap red plastic bracelet on the hand of the hooligan has since led to dismissals on social media that he is not a military officer.
Also, the voter films his supposed vote for Akufo-Addo at different angles, when the EC has clear rules against filming the voting process in the booth.
Already, some hooligans who were caught attempting to film themselves voting at the special voting exercise have been arrested by the Police and none of them turned out to be a military officer.
WhatsUp News has learnt that the fake video is part of many that the ruling party intends to conjure and attempt to use to sway people to vote for Akufo-Addo during the main voting exercise.
