As the 7 December 2024 general elections approach, Ada MP Comfort Doyoe Cudjoe has advised her party, the main opposition National Democratic Congress to focus on the polling centres during the elections instead of making Electoral Commission Chair Jean Mensa their target.
“We should not focus on Jean Mensa; let us focus on the branch, which is where you get the win and, so, protect that ballot in your branch and shine and open your eyes when it is time to do the calculation of the ballots and make sure they do the right calculation”, she urged during an interview with journalists.
“If you take your eyes off your polling station, that is where they will scam you and steal the elections,” she warned, noting: “And when it gets to Jean Mensa, whatever they brought to her is what she puts together, so protect your ballot at the polling station.”.
The Second Deputy Chief Whip of the Minority Caucus in Parliament also warned Ghanaians to be suspicious of any project or sod-cutting event started this year by the government, describing such things as scams.
“Nobody should believe any government-cutting sod in an election year,” she noted.
Particularly to the traditional leaders, she urged: “No chief should worry his head by putting on his beautiful kente cloth following any president in an election year who is about to exit power, to sit and cut sod for projects; they are just scamming them.”
