Security personnel have cordoned a building at Dzorwulu in the Ayawaso-West Wuogon in Accra, which has been besieged by hundreds of supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), who claim it has facilities to “doctor” election results.
Former Nigerian president and leader of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) observer mission, Olusegun Obasanjo, went to the building where he was told that it provided back-up IT facilities for the Electoral Commission (EC), but the NPP supporters would not budge.
Led by Mr Sammy Awuku, the NPP Deputy Director of Communications, they said the alleged use of the IT company by the EC was not known to the leadership of the party.
Security personnel have arrived at the building in their numbers after all efforts to urge calm had fallen on deaf ears.
They insist that the “doctoring” was being done with the connivance of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
NDC officials have dismissed the allegation saying the NPP had called its supporters to the building to foment trouble because of fears of losing the election. GNA
