Mr. Boadu, speaking to party delegates during the ruling party's Volta Regional Conference on on Thursday, July 27th, the NPP's acting General Secretary said that the ongoing debacle at the EC has only worked to solidify the ruling party's lack of trust of the EC garnered over the years.

“As for Electoral Commission, there is no way in the history of our party that we’re going to trust any electoral commission or what so ever, we won’t.

Let me tell, when in 2010, NDC carried their supporters to South Africa [Fifa World Cup], we didn’t complain, when they carried them to Equatorial Guinea and Brazil, we didn’t complain because to us, they’re Ghanaians,” Said Sammy Awuku.
