The National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has said the New Patriotic Party (NPP) lacks critical minds.
Mr Adams said this on Accra-based 3FM on Wednesday when he condemned the party for accusing the Electoral Commission (EC) of colluding with Superlock Technologies Limited (STL) to manipulate the results of the upcoming election.
The EC has already denied that STL helps it transmit electoral results from the collation centres, but the NPP has had cause to reiterate it accusation after the Interior Ministry, in a recent press release, alluded to STL transmitting electoral results.
In his reaction, Mr Adams said the party ought to know that STL was not in a position to manipulate election results.
He said: “If the NPP had not taken out serious minds in their party leadership, they would not behave like the way they are behaving today,” he stated.
“If Kwabena Agyepong was still the executive, I don’t think they would have gone on this tangent because he was a key person in the strong room of the Electoral Commission and has been in many elections, so he understands how results are transmitted from polling stations to the Electoral Commission headquarters and would not have joined Nana Akomea and the rest to sing this type of lullaby.
“We all know how results were faxed from the regional headquarters of the Electoral Commission to their national headquarters in the strong room being done and received in the presence of political parties”.
Both NPP and NDC are in full campaign mood as the elections inch closer.
President John Mahama has embarked on an ‘Accounting to the People’ tour of the Western Region.

The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has also carried out a demonstration in Kumasi, aimed at compelling the EC to undertake validation of the voters’ register before the elections.
