NATIONAL CHAIRMAN of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, has called for a “relentless” war against Jean Mensa, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC).
Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo, in a purported leaked audio recording available to DGN Online, could be heard telling some executives and members of the NDC that “the other aspect is the EC Chair. We must wage a relentless war against this EC Chair.”
The recording is believed to have been done at a meeting ahead of the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency by-election held on January 31, 2019.
Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo could be heard also complaining about the treatment of the NDC’s parliamentary candidate for the by-election, Delali Kwasi Brempong, whose La Bawaleshie residence on the day of voting became the centre for gun battle between National Security operatives and supporters of the NDC.
The NDC claimed that the EC Chair despises him so much, saying emphatically that “me, she doesn’t want to see my face.”
It would be recalled that on the day of the by-election, there was an unhindered access to the EC headquarters by over 20 National Democratic Congress (NDC) apparatchiks.
Leading the arrowhead was party chairman Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, supported by then NDC flagbearer aspirant, Sylvester Mensah, former Attorney General, Marietta Brew-Appiah Oppong, Executive member, Baba Jamal and 20 others.
