He asserted that though the Volta Region was considered an NDC stronghold, last year's elections saw a low turnout, which he attributed to former president Rawlings, as his contribution.

However, Rawlings released a statement refuting the claims by Mr Amewu.

To make such untruthful and absurd claims of a follow-up telephone call which can easily be verified is foolhardy, imprudent, unbecoming of a political actor who is supposed to lead with integrity and absolutely disrespectful to former President Rawlings,” the statement said.
