The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for the Assin North Constituency in the Central Region, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has cautioned the Electoral Commission (EC) not to employ any diabolic tactics to rig the December 7 general elections.

Mr Agyapong alleged that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party had connived with the EC not to recharge the biometric registration and verifications machines to its fullest in order to deter voters from voting, especially at the NPPs strongholds.

He made the statements over the weekend when the NPP parliamentary candidate for the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) Constituency, Dr. Nana Ato Arthur, launched his 2012 campaign.

The launch, which attracted thousands of NPP supporters from the constituency, was well attended by national, regional and constituency executives.

Addressing the crowd, Mr. Agyapong alleged that the ruling party had mobilized some youth who had lodged at Gemani, a fishing community in the South Dayi District of the Volta Region and were being trained to act as national security officers to disturb the upcoming elections.

He noted that the NPP had put in place the necessary strategies to face the NDC who had planned to rig the election.

Mr Agyapong therefore urged Ghanaians not to be scared of the bad intention of NDC but have confidence and vote for NPP, the party which had their welfare at heart.

Mr. Agyapong revealed that the most corrupt government Ghana had ever had was the Mills-Mahama administration which had seen old and young ministers looting the nation for their selfish interest without thinking of the poor Ghanaian.

See how President Mahama and Ofosu Ampofo are misusing state resources. They have ransacked our coffers for their own personal gains and their small boys like Okudzeto Ablakwa and others are following. We need to vote against them in this election, else our resources will get lost, he said.

Mr. Agyapong said the people of Elmina had voted for the NDC in particular since 1992, yet they had not seen any developmental projects to transform the area.

The MP therefore urged people in the area to vote for the NPP in the upcoming elections to enable them to reconstruct the deplorable Benya Bridge.

On his part, Dr. Ato Arthur appealed to the electorate to vote for him to continue his massive developmental projects.

He noted that since the constituency was well noted for its tourist and agricultural attractions, he would ensure that all the needed trimmings were provided, with support from the constituents.
