The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Director of elections, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, has rubbished reports making rounds on social and traditional media that polling agents for the party would be handed weapons and bulletproof vests on election day.
Denying the report, the former Minister for Youth and Sports expressed shock at the reportage and termed it as “completely false.”
Below is his statement;
“My attention has been drawn to a story circulating widely on Social Media, in which I am quoted to have said that the “NDC is to arm its 2024 Polling Agents with Bulletproof Vests, Guns…”
I wish to state emphatically and categorically that that attribution is completely false, and must be treated with the contempt it deserves.
I am arranging to get the full unedited version of the interview so the entire world would hear exactly what I said, and expose the perfidy of the publishers.
Elvis Afriyie Ankrah
Director of Elections, NDC.
