The Akufo-Addo government has wondered why former president Mahama keeps doubting the credibility and neutrality of the Jean Mensa-led Electoral Commission.
Earlier in May 2019, Mahama demanded answers from the EC concerning the alleged hacking into the election management body’s IT system which prompted a halt of the electronic transmission of results in the 2016 election.
Responding to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer’s demand for explanations about the hacking of the EC system during the 2016 general elections, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah wondered why Mahama never made such a request when Charlotte Osei, was in office.
“On the former president’s call, it’s a bit interesting that that call never came through until there was a new EC Chair.
“It’s just an interesting point that during the tenure of the former EC Chair, we never heard him [Mr Mahama] make this request: that details of their system being hacked, etc., should be put out there,” Oppong Nkrumah told journalists.
Mahama said he believed a full probe into the hacking was needed to enable the EC implement counter-measures to prevent similar occurrences in the future as the 2020 general elections approach.
