Innolink, the company charged with the printing of presidential ballot papers for Greater Accra and the Volta Region, have responded to claims coming from the New Patriotic Party claims of a major security breach at their printing facility.
Speaking at a press conference yesterday, Business Development Manager of Innolink Ghana, Mr. Kingsly Kofi Addo, said that at no time were any of the plates used in the printing of presidential ballot papers given out to any officer during the printing, as otherwise claimed.
“We wish to state that our own preliminary investigations have established that no officer of Innolink took the plate of the presidential ballot out of the premises during the printing process,” he said.
In an attempt to further disprove the claims made by the NPP Director of Elections, Mr Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah, Innolink had some of its officials produce the plates in question and showed it to present members of the media before their final destruction.
Indeed, all the plates for the presidential ballots are intact but they will be destroyed in the presence of party representatives and the security on November 24, 2016, an indication that nobody can even have contact with the plates,” said Mr. Addo.
