Thou Shall Not Speak Evil Of Another NPP Person – Dr. Bawumia


The running mate to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2012 elections, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has appealed to members of the party not to speak evil of one another since it leads to self destruction.

He pointed out that in as much as “we may have our differences there is no need to go public since a lot is expected from us as a formidable political party”.

He said the NPP had a strong message for Ghanaians and before this could be translated into governance, the party must be seen to be united and ready to take over the reins of power from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government led by President John Mahama. Continue reading

Over-voting alone will collapse Mahama’s presidency – NPP


The petitioners in the Supreme Court case challenging the results of the 2012 Presidential elections have stated that if over-voting was the only violation they complained about in the election petition, then the annulment of such votes will be enough to bring down the Presidency of John Dramani Mahama.

According to Paragraph 73 of the main affidavit of the petitioners, if the over-votes in 2,065 polling stations “were annulled as required by law, the 1st Respondent, John Dramani Mahama, would have 49.1% of the valid votes cast, and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo would have 49.3% of the valid votes cast.”

Widespread instances of over-voting, as stated in the main affidavit, were found in polling stations “where (a) votes cast exceeded the total number of registered voters or (b) votes exceeded the total number of ballot papers issued to voters on voting day in violation of Article 42 of the Constitution and Regulation 24 (1) of C. I. 75.”

In affirming the cancellation of such votes, as contained in Regulation 24 (1) of C. I. 75, the Chairman of Electoral Commission, prior to the December 2012 elections, emphasised to the general public that any polling station where over-voting occurred would have its results annulled.

Akufo-Addo & Co file affidavit and supporting evidence for presidential petition hearing to begin


The petitioners in the Supreme Court case challenging the results of the 2012 Presidential election on Sunday afternoon satisfied the Supreme Court’s order of 2nd April, 2013, by filing affidavits of witness evidence they intend to use to prove their case that the 1st petitioner, Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party, should have been rightfully declared as winner of the December polls and not John Mahama, the candidate of the ruling National Democratic Congress.

The filing of the three petitioners’ affidavit evidence means that the three respondents in the case have up to Friday, 12th April to file their respective affidavits, as well, for hearing to begin on Tuesday, 16th April.

Messrs Egbert Faibille and Alex Quainoo, two of the lawyers for the petitioners, were seen carrying truck-load of boxes of evidence to the office of the Supreme Court Registrar. Over 400,000 documents in all were expected to be filed, with 15 copies of each, supplied to all parties in the suit, plus the nine justices on the panel.

The main affidavit contains 83 paragraphs, which spells out the case for the petitioners, supported by boxes of documentary evidence from polling stations. Thus, in addition to the handful of affidavits filed, the petitioners submitted evidence in the form of colour photocopies of pink sheets (Statement of Poll and Declaration of Results Form) from 11,842 polling stations, where they are disputing the results as declared.

The petitioners have based their case mainly on the facts and figures on the pink sheets, the official document that the Electoral Commission relied on to declare the results of the presidential poll held on 7th and 8th December. They have also grounded their case on clear breaches of the Constitution and other electoral laws and practices in Ghana. Continue reading

Ghana has no room for negative thinkers – Bawumia | Politics


Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, 2012 vice Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party, has reacted sharply to the continuous pessimism of the ruling National Democratic congress with regard to the NPP’s pledge to make secondary education free, saying that in Ghana’s quest to build a modern and first class society, there is no room for pessimists who are not ready to think big and act boldly in the interest of Ghana’s future.

Dr. Bawumia said this at a forum organized by the Bolgatanga Polytechnic chapter of the Tertiary Education Confederacy (TESCON) of the NPP on Saturday. Continue reading

Goats Take Over THE Pwalugu Tomato Factory NDC Claims to Have Revived


Claims by the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) to have revived the Pwalugu Tomato Factory (Northern Star Tomato Factory) in Pwalugu have fallen flat on its face as a visit to the premises of the factory by New Patriotic Party Running Mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and some selected media persons has revealed that the company has totally been abandoned and equipments left to rot at the mercy of the weather.

It would be recalled that in March 2010, the NDC administration indicated through its sector Minister, Hannah Tetteh, that it had revived the Northern Star Tomato factory with an investment of $1.7million, adding that the factory was going to operate at full capacity to process 500,000 tonnes of tomatoes a day.
