According to him, he has credible evidence that Sam George who was the eventual winner rigged the elections.
Sam George defeated E.T Mensah in the party’s primaries; ending his 20 year reign as MP.Speaking to Citi News, E.T Mensah said an official complaint has been forwarded to the party leadership for action.
He argued that while monitoring the election, “we heard that people were doing multiple voting in some places” adding that in Awhiam, there were people “who were given four to six ballot papers [and] the Police were there but did nothing.”
“We will collate it and send to the NDC election committee. I’ve spoken to the chairman already. I told the chairman that I want them to investigate. This party has never been what it is; he came into our book under four years ago. I think that this boy should be called to order, he had brought division, this Ningo Prampram divide was not there. He was the one that started the problem which led to skirt and blouse in the 2012 election. Little did anybody know that they had an agenda,” he said.
They mock my people
The legislator lamented that Sam George’s people after the election mocked his people saying “they insult and threaten them. What can we do, except to send it to the national to see what can be done. He does things and then look for coat hangers. Why should you hand your irrational and irresponsible action on me.”
E.T. Mensah also said Sam George has a long way to go in his political career.
“He is somebody that should be called to order. He is a loosed canon. We have really been under serious stress in the last five months. He claims I’m his father, he is saying it on radio, and that I should take him back. I think he would have to purge himself of the treachery. He has a long way to go, he hasn’t won election yet and it depends on you winning and being sworn in before you are called honourable,” he added.
Sam George polled 53.4% of the total votes cast in the primary while E.T. Mensah had 38.5%.
