The unidentified informant, he went on, was introduced to him by his own brother, and he therefore had no reason to doubt the authenticity of the information.
Speaking on Oman FM, the lawmaker further stated that the informant was ready to travel to the North to partake in the plan, but he (Agyapong) convinced him not to.
“Myself and some top guns in the NPP impressed upon the man not to go up North and perpetrate that act.
Because normally he would go and mobilize the youth and the ballot boxes for them to paddy same.
But we pleaded with him and he obliged us and that was how I stopped Amadu Sulley and the NDC form rigging from these 1,000 polling stations” he said.
He went on to say that assertions of the former EC Chairperson, Charlotte Osei, that Amadu Sulley transferred votes for the NDC was enough proof of the information he received from his source.
