A former National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress [NDC] Kofi Adams says his party has Ghana at heart – therefore, defied all means to challenge the 2016 presidential election knowing very well that the NPP won the election through dubious means.

Mr Adams was emphatic that the 2016 presidential election was 'heavily rigged' to favour the then opposition New Patriotic Party [NPP] led by its flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“We knew something was wrong when results started coming from various regions. Considering the tension that was building on then [in 2016], if we had challenged the results, Ghana wouldn’t have been what it is today,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show, 'Ghana Montie'.

Koif Adams backed former President John Dramani Mahama’s claim that the 2016 was not “free and fair” – after applauding his decision “to let go” the 2016 election for the peace of the country.

Mahama who is still not over the 2016 ‘embarrassing’ defeat has called on the Electoral Commission to publish details of its investigations into the hacking of its transmission system during the 2016 general elections.

According to him, Ghanaians deserve to know circumstances under which the EC’s system was compromised at the time.

“As I speak, I am not aware that the Electoral Commission has carried out any investigation into what compromised their IT system. And even if they have, we the stakeholders, the political parties, have not been briefed on what caused the corruption of the system.”

“In the interest of transparency, it is important for Ghanaians to understand what happened before we go into another election,” the former President said during a presentation at the Saïd Business School, Oxford University, organised in collaboration with the African Studies Centre and the Oxford Africa.
