An International Bio-statistician, Dr. Justice Moses Aheto has rubbished the figures as contained in the EC Chair Jean Mensa’s election results declaration and exposed the EC with what he called the real data and true reflection of the Presidential results.
Dr. Aheto who pegged Candidate Akufo Addo at 49.654% and Candidate John Dramani Mahama, at 46.795% using EC’s own data, called for a run- of the Presidential elections and described the EC’s figures as voodoo figures.
He made this disclosure in Accra on Tuesday at a public forum organized by Respect My Vote Movement under the theme: “ the Credibility of the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections”.
“Meanwhile for you to get the correct percentage of each of the candidates, you need to use the total valid votes cast and the EC, per their data has given 5 different total valid votes cast. So which one are they using?”, Dr. Aheto queried.
He emphasized that the EC’s new figure arising out of a correction to the earlier figures which she (Jean Mensah) referred as inadvertent mistake was also fraught with mistakes adding that the EC currently has provided about five (5) different total valid votes casts
Per the laws of Ghana, for you to be declared as president, you need atleast 50 plus one vote so clearly nobody wins the elections .This is not my data. This is data from the EC’s own declarations.
Dr. Moses Aheto who is also a Lecturer at the University of Ghana added that “ so when you do that for President Mahama, he will get 46.76% and Nana Addo will get 49.65%”.
“…so as you can see clearly between this and this, there is no winner. What does that mean to you in layman’s understanding. It’s a run-off”.
In view of the above data and statistics, the International Bio- statistician described the 2020 presidential results as flawed and cooked.
Later, Speaker upon speaker including Nana Oye Bampoe Addo, a member of Respect my Vote Movement Mr. Samed Akalilu all described the election results as flawed and called on the EC to do what legitimate.
“We are demanding that Jean Mensah counts all our votes and declare the winner of the Presidential elections”. They said.
“…The declaration made by the EC is not the reflection of the will of the people”.
Other Guest Speakers like the Director of Elections Mr. Elvis Afriyie Ankrah and the Member of Parliament elect for Tamale Central Comrade Murtala Mohammed emphasized that the NDC will do anything legal under the law to reverse the travesty of justice meted to the Party by the EC.
They also expressed their disgust at the projections made by some media houses during the elections which turned out to be false and prevailed upon them to apologize to Ghanaians and tread with caution going forward.
