Some of the supporters and current polling station executives at Kwadaso speaking in an interview with Pure Fm’s Osei Kwadwo accused the Member of Parliament (MP) of Kwadaso Constituency Hon Kingsley Nyarko, Constituency Chairman Mr Bonah Boadi and other executives of trying to manipulate the polling position elections in their favour.
According to them, “We came here around 4:30 am, others came here around 5:30 am and 6 am but it is now 8 am but still the party office has been locked. We have been stranded here”.
“We have been told the nomination forms are available in our constituency but the MP and other constituency executives are trying to sell the forms to their people so they can manipulate the elections,” they said.
They added, “Whether they open the party office at 12 pm today, we will continue to wait till we get the forms because we won’t allow them to manipulate the elections”.
At the time of filing this report, the party office has still been locked.
