2020 Polls: What I Saw In EC Strong Room Still ‘Haunting’ Me – Kpessah-Whyte



The second witness for John Mahama in the 2020 Election Petition, Dr Michael Kpessah-Whyte says he’s still traumatised by events in the Electoral Commission (EC)’s strong room before the declaration of the presidential results on December 9, 2020.

Speaking on Prime Morning he said the actions of the EC clearly indicated that there was a deliberate attempt to undermine the sovereign will of the citizenry in the bid to rig the election result in favour of a political party.

“I feel very traumatised by the experience of the strong room and the EC in the sense that for the first time in my life, I [saw] a blatant, dishonest deception and disregard for common sense displayed by the Electoral Commission.”

According to him, Jean Mensa, the EC Chair, tricked them into leaving the strong room to confer with Mr Mahama on some election-related issues only for her to declare the results in their absence.

“So for the EC to announce a result that invariably had to be changed several times, clearly indicates that there was a deliberate, systematic decision to undermine the sovereign will of the people and steal their mandate and give it to somebody else,” he retorted.
