Ghana: There'll be chaos if incumbent wins 2016 polls – Opposition lawmaker

Maverick lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong has warned that there will be chaos in Ghana if the Electoral Commission attempts to cheat the NPP flagbearer in the upcoming elections.

According to him, the party will not allow the EC to declare President John Mahama winner of the polls, if there is evidence that Nana Akufo-Addo is the actual winner in the ballot, expected to be held in November.

Addressing supporters of the elephant family in Kumasi, the Assin North MP also accused the chairperson of electoral commission of exchanging her womanhood for the position.

“If Charlotte declares Mahama winner, that day; make nobody make a mistake, Liberians were peaceful, Sierra Leoneans were peaceful but when they got to that point….all die be die,” he charged

He continued: “If she attempts to steal the vote, if they haven’t thought of it, they should. If the pink sheet suggests that Nana Addo has won and they try to declare Mahama winner; it will never happen. That day, if you are pastor stay home, if you are not a man, stay home, we will fight to defend this country. I am confident Ghanaians will vote for the NPP but the electoral commission has decided to cheat us. As the judges said, we will not allow them to plunge this country into chaos".

Ghana goes to the polls in November to elect a president and parliamentarians. The frontrunners are President John Mahama of the ruling National Democratic Congress and Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party.

This is the third time Akufo-Addo is making an attempt at the presidency haven been beaten earlier by the late John Atta Mills in 2008.
