An aspiring flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Alabi is alleging some irregularities ahead of the party’s presidential election tomorrow, Saturday.


Below Is the statement from Alabi's team:

“The Prof. Joshua Alabi Campaign Team has with a heavy heart observed that the processes leading to tomorrow’s NDC’s contest in search of a flag bearer to lead the National Democratic Congress into the 2020 presidential election has been grossly compromised ahead of the contest.

Seals of the two aspirants, that of the EC and the NDC affixed to the bags containing the ballot papers were broken before they arrived at the various destinations in the regions. In Central Region for instance, protests from agents of aspirants who witnessed the anomalies were ignored by regional elections directors of NDC who proceeded to repackage the ballot papers into brown envelopes for dispatch to various constituencies. These and many more infringement of the processes have been identified and evidence exist to that effect.”

Responding to the allegations, Joshua Akamba, National Organiser expressed shock over the claims.

“I’m shocked about what I’m hearing that they had issue with regards to the security of the ballot papers. It was dispatched together by the police. So it is strange,” he said on Eyewitness News.

Feeding and transportation rumours

Just yesterday, Prof Joshua Alabi also debunked rumours that a one of the candidates is taking responsibility for the transportation and feeding of the delegates.

He argued that the rumours are being peddled to give that particular candidate an upper hand over the others.

“The campaign team of Prof Joshua Alabi, a National Democratic Congress Flagbearer aspirant, has learnt with dismay, information making the rounds among the NDC delegates who are to vote on Saturday, 23rd February 2019, that feeding and transportation for delegates during tomorrow’s election of a Flagbearer is being sponsored by a particular candidate.”

“This falsehood being communicated to delegates is intended to unfairly give that particular candidate an edge over the other contestants, a statement from the team indicated.
