Ex President John Dramani Mahama has conceded that some of the party agents of the NDC who were sent to protect the party’s interest during the presidential election caused their defeat indirectly.
As per John Mahama, some reports presented by some regional executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) uncovered that the use of ‘illiterate’ agents to somepolling stations adversely influenced the party’s odds in the 2020 elections.
Talking at the yearly conference of the NDC’s Professionals Forum’s in Accra on Thursday, 29 April 2021, the 2020 presidential candidate of the NDC had this to say:
“Every region was asked to account for its performance in the 2020 elections. They came with reports and there was one region who stated that ”some of our party agents were illiterate, they could not read nor write”.
John Dramani Mahama said one of the manners in which this can be abridged is for a great deal of NDC party faithful’s to apply for the position of electoral officers during elections.
As per him, the New Patriotic Party has exploited that and keep on utilizing it.
