The opposition National Democratic Congress – NDC has once again exposed the Electoral Commissioners, Jean Mensa over how she cooked the results of the December 7, 2020 Presidential results and fraudulently declared the incumbent President, Nana Akufo-Addo winner of the polls.
In the thorough analysis of the EC’s declared figures and the corrected declarations, the NDC took to the take to do a proper analysis of the figures from the Electoral Commissioners and according to Dr. Justice Moses Aheto, “Totalling all the percentages should have been based on the total valid votes cast and the valid votes attributed to all the Presidential Candidates, the total percentage will be (50.098+46.260+0.786+.0091+0.041+0.027+0.053+0.057+0.081+0.051+0.049+0.072)% = 97.67%”
Dr. Aheto said “This total percentage of 97.67 cannot be correct because it is less than 100%. Hence the results declared cannot be correct based on the total vote cast of 13,434,574 given by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission in her Speech on 9th December 2020”
If readers can recall, On December 9, 2020, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa during her 2020 Presidential Results Declaration said, the Total Valid Votes Cast was 13,434,574 from which she stated that President Akufo-Addo had 6,730,413 representing 51.% and former President John Mahama got 6,214,889 representing 47.% and other political parties had 489272 however after proper scrutiny by the public including Awake News’ Efo Korsi Senyo on the night of the declaration revealed that the percentage point allocated to the candidates per the total valid votes as declared by the EC is not correct. According to Awake New’s independent calculations, the Total Valid Vote ought to have been 13,121,111 and not 13,434,574 we the EC claimed.
See Awake News’ calculation below:
|Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo||6,730,413|
|John Dramani Mahama||6,214,889|
|Christian Kwabena Andrews||105,565|
|Ivor Kobina Greenstreet||12,215|
|Henry Herbert Lartey||3,574|
|Percival Kofi Akpaloo||7,690|
|David Asibi Ayindenaba Apasera||10,887|
|Brigitte Akosua Dzogbenuku||6,848|
|Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings||6,612|
|Alfred Kwame Asiedu Walker||9,703|
|Total Valid Votes (as calculated by Awake News from EC’s Declaration)||13,121,111|
This public scrutiny compelled the Electoral Commissioner to issue a Press Statement on December 10, 2020 admitting that she has done an error in the calculations adding that “The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission inadvertently used 13433573 as total valid votes cast. The total valid votes cast is 13119460.”.
Surprisingly to many, the stated added that “This does not change the percentages stated for each candidate and the made by the Chairperson.”
However, the new figures the Electoral Commission put out did not convenience many including the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as one can easily see some discrepancies between the individual figures of the first declared result and the second results.
This forced the NDC’s Flagbearer who has rejected the results citing fraud to commission a team to statistically analyze the two results from the Electoral Commissioner.
The NDC revealed that the figures put out in the Press State actually could best be described as cooked and fraudulent.
The NDC’s analysis said according to Jean Mensa, in her declaration:
“Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo of the NPP obtained 6,730,413 being 51.295% of the total valid votes cast”.
This figure of 51.295% cannot be correct if it is based on the total valid votes cast already given as 13,434,574.”
From this total valid votes cast, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo’s percentage should be 6,730,413/13,434,574 x100% = 50.098% and not the 51.295 declared
Then John Mahama’s figures Jean Mensa said:
“John Dramani Mahama of the NDC obtained 6,214,818 being 47.366% of the total valid votes cast.”
This figure of 47.366% cannot be correct if it is based on the total valid votes cast already given as 13,434,574.
From this total valid votes cast, John Dramani Mahama’s percentage should be 6,214,818/13,434,574 x100% = 46.260% and not the 47.366 declared
There were series of adding and subtractions across all other 10 candidates.
See this below:
- GUM’s % should be 0.786% and not the 0.805% declared
- CPP’s % should be 0.091% and not the 0.093% declared
- GFP’s % should be 0.041% and not the 0.042% declared
- GCPP’s % would remain same at 0.027% as declared
- APC’s % should be 0.053% and not the 0.054% declared
- LPG’s % should be 0.057% and not the 0.059% declared
- PNC’s % should be 0.081% and not the 0.083% declared
- PPP’s % should be 0.051% and not the 0.052% declared
- NDP’s % should be 0.049% and not the 0.050% declared
- IND’s % should be 0.072% and not the 0.074% declared
