NCCE denies owning NDC-branded Mahindra pick-ups

The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has denied owning the Mahindra vehicles which were reported to have been branded into the colours of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) to support the party's election campaign.

In a statement issued in Accra on Wednesday, the NCCE said it had never used Mahindra vehicles for its operations and did not own one.

"The Commission has no connection to the said vehicles. We urge the media and all political parties to desist from drawing the NCCE into any partisan brawling," the statement said.

The NCCE gave an assurance that as a constitutional body, it would be independent in carrying out its mandate to the nation.
