NPP refutes NDC’s claim of busing in soldiers to transfer votes in Effutu

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Effutu constituency has dismissed allegations by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that it has brought in 71 soldiers from outside the area to transfer their votes.

The NDC had claimed that the NPP was busing in people from outside Effutu to transfer votes and create chaos during the exercise, but the NPP has described the allegations as baseless.

Speaking at a press conference, NPP Communications Officer Ellis Otabil challenged the NDC to provide evidence to support their claims. Instead, he accused the NDC leadership of orchestrating a scheme to destabilize the vote transfer process and intimidate potential voters.

According to Otabil, only indigenous people, students, and transferred workers are transferring their votes to Effutu. He warned the NDC against intimidating voters, emphasizing that the NPP will stand up for what is right.

The NPP’s response comes after the NDC alleged that Majority Leader and incumbent MP Alexander Afenyo-Markin was behind the alleged plot to bus in soldiers to transfer votes.

The vote transfer exercise has been a contentious issue in the constituency, with both parties accusing each other of trying to manipulate the process.
