Ghana’s Vice President, Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has admonished pollsters to stop the publication of false results of pre-election polls.
According to Mr. Amissah-Arthur, such polls may have an effect on the country’s stability , as well as potentially undermine the work of the Electoral Commission (EC) and create problems for the country.
He said this during the inauguration of a Boys Dormitory block for the Enyan Abaasa Technical Institute in the Ajumako-Enyan –Essiam District of the Central Region.
The Veep further noted that the constant attacks on work of the the Electoral Commission can weaken the integrity of the institution and set the stage for people to reject the results when it is announced.
