The Executive Secretary of the Free Zones Board, Kwadwo Twum Boafo says the ruling National Democratic Congress has a great asset for electoral victory in New Patriotic Party flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo.

He insists Nana Addo is a wrong candidate for an election as important as the selection of a person to superintend the affairs of the nation and that it is high time the NPP realized that they have a bad candidate.

Twum Boafo, a panelist on Alhaji and Alhaji on Radio Gold on Saturday, suggested the NPP should look elsewhere for reasons for their electoral loss, than carry their frustrations onto Superlock Technologies Limited (STL), the technology vendor contracted by the Electoral Commission.

He said he was struggling to come to terms with how the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has come to the conclusion that a computer software is able to change election results in favour of President Mahama.

“You see, for me it doesn’t make sense,” he said of the NPP’s suspicions that Superlock Technologies Limited intercepted, modified and transmitted election 2012 results.

“The NPP have believed, over time that somehow or the other, it is the STL that magically changed the results to make President Mahama win. You see, what I find very difficult to understand about these people is that when they bastardize the Electoral Commission during elections they can’t win, it is the same Electoral Commission they use when Nana Addo wins 95%, 78%, it’s the same Electoral Commission. The electoral officers don’t change…

“If you are President Mahama and you really do not want to contest Nana Addo, right, and you are so in charge of the electoral processes that you can make a computer programme change the results, wouldn’t you knock him out at the primaries?” Twum Boafo queried.

But he said President Mahama will not do that because he is aware that the best electoral asset the NDC has is Nana Akufo-Addo, saying “there is absolutely no doubt about that.”

He added, “If you have an opponent who goes out and makes ethno-tribal statements like ‘all die be die’, ‘y?n Akanfo? de?’, ‘y?k?? Atiwa no y?yii biribi kakra kyer?? w?n’, ‘militants on our side’, … a presidential candidate who goes to the Volta Region, a region that he is trying to win and says that ‘you people only vote one-way’, forgetting that he came from Kyebi where people are still wearing his 1996 T-shirt.”

According to Twum Boafo, the NPP has had no clear campaign message for the past couple of elections and it is time all who seek to govern the people got serious with the business of getting elected.

“It is time for people who want to win elections in this country, especially for people who want to govern the people of this country to get serious. You see, you cannot come to us Ghanaians, as somebody who wants to win elections, and tell us that it is your time.
