According to the head of the All People’s Congress (APC), the New Patriotic Party organised to hack into the official website of the Electoral Commission which caused the EC's inability to transmit the results electronically via internet.
Hassan Ayariga, alleged the NPP compromised the results being transmitted to the National Collation Centre to favour them, for which reason they claim to be in the lead in the presidential polls.
“The NPP hacked into EC’s website to change figures in their favour that is why they are claiming to be winners which is a blatant lie,” Hassan added. The interviewer tried to school Ayariga on what Charlotte Osei said that it was an attempted hack, he retorted, "Charlotte Osei said that it was an attempted hack, he retorted, "There’s everything possible so if there’s an attempted hack it amount to jail because an attempted murder is a murder."
