Failed Presidential Aspirant, Akwesi Addai Odike has accused the Electoral Commission (EC) of unfairness against him.
According to Odike, the EC’s decision to disqualify to him from contesting the 2020 polls is inbrindled with some level of unfairness.
Speaking moments after the announcement by the Electoral Commission, Odike wondered why the Commission will disqualify him after the IT department had accepted his nomination forms.
He told Roland Walker on News 360 that it not true that he forged signatories as has been adduced by the Commission.
“The claim against me is not true, I did not forge any signature. If somebody is not qualified, it is the IT Centre that detects that. But the IT centre okayed my file.”
The Electoral Commission(EC) on October 19, 2020, cleared 12 candidates to contest the 2020 Presidential elections in December.
Those cleared are; President Nana Akufo-Addo of the NPP and former President John Mahama of the NDC.
The rest are Madam Akua Donkor of GFP, Dr. Henry Lartey of GCPP, Dr. Hassan Ayariga of APC, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings of NDP, Mr. Ivor Kobina Greenstreet of CPP, Brigitte Dzogbenuku of the PPP; Mr. Alfred Kwame Asiedu Walker, an independent aspirant and Reverend Christian Kwabena Andrew (Osofo Kyiri Abosom) of GUM.
