Stephen Atubiga, a former flagbearer aspirant of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), is alleging that polling agents of the party sold statement of polls (Pink Sheets) of the December 7, 2020 elections to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in what ultimately helped the NPP in the presidential election petition that the NDC lost on Thursday, March 4, 2020.
According to Atubigah, the pink sheets were sold to the NPP for between GHS2,000 and GHS5,000.
“I’m spilling the beans today: there’s an allegation of some of our people, our boys, who sold the pink sheets out, they sold our pink sheets for between GHS2,000 and GHS5,000. I’m telling you. Put me on record”, Atubigah said on Class FM on Friday, 5 March 2021.
He said such “greed” conspired with “negligence and personal interests” to rob the NDC of victory in the polls.
Mr Atubiga intends to petition the leadership of the NDC to investigate the allegation as well as query some key officials responsible for the NDC campaign, including its Campaign Manager Prof Joshua Alabi and Strong Room agent Rojo Mettle-Nunoo.
“…The IT directors, Griffiths; they all have questions to answer when we go for the petition. They have to tell us: did our system break down? With IT today, we are supposed to have the 275 pink sheets, even if not anything, electronically taking pictures and sending to us”, he noted.
The NDC was unable to confidently provide pink sheet evidence to prove its allegations that the December 2020 elections were rigged by the Electoral Commission (EC) for the NPP. Eventually, after over one month of hearing of the NDC petition, the Supreme Court threw out the case for lacking merit.
