Former Communications minister Edward Omane Boamah has called on Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo to be bold and accept responsibility for the fact that election results for 2016 have still not been collated.
The former minister took to Facebook and posted in response to what he says is an attempt by one Michael Ologo to link him to a failure of the NDC to collate 2016 elections.
Michael Ologo is from the Yilo Krobo constituency and 2020 parliamentary aspirant.
Edward Omane Boamah in the Facebook post described the claim as false.
“I have read with utter surprise a deliberate and dark lie being peddled by one Michael Ologo, that I, Edward Kofi Omane Boamah was in charge of the collation of NDC’s election results for the 2016 elections. This is false!” he posited.
The former Communications minister seems to have had enough of what he says are lies and tales being peddled about his role in the 2016 elections and has warned that he would not tolerate any further attempts to blame him for acts that he knew nothing about.
“I have largely remained silent about the malignant attempts some individuals made in 2017 to drag my good name into the mud concerning matters that can never stand the test of both logical and factual scrutiny.”
“To all such people, I say to you – from now on; not in my name,” he stated.
Edward Omane Boamah stated that his role on the Logistics Committee of the 2016 Campaign team of the NDC did not include the collation of results.
He also indicated that the collation of results was purely the job of immediate past Director of Elections and Vice Chairman of the NDC Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
“If the said Michael Ologo has the blessings of others to peddle this lie, then they should be advised accordingly.”
“Let me kindly remind Ologo that Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo as a National Vice Chairman of the NDC doubled up as Director of Elections. He must accept responsibility instead of faceless individuals attempting to explain away the fact that election results for 2016 have still not been collated,” he added.
