Mr.Mensah Thompson, Executive Director of Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) has said that,the EC chairperson,Madam Jean Mensah would be held entirely responsible for any fire outbreak that would strike the Electoral Commission’s head office in Accra.
In a statement copied to broadcastergh.com this morning,he said,it has come to his attention that there are plans far advanced by some unscrupulous elements within the Electoral Commission to set the Headquarters of the Commission on fire.
“It would be recalled that, one Owusu Bempah a self acclaimed Prophet recently came out with a Prophecy that the Electoral Commission Office would be gutted by fire.
The magnanimity of the Prophecy and the time frame within which he made those comments are not something that we can overlook, We believe that his “Prophecy” is part of a grand agenda to intentionally set the E.C’s Head office on fire, NOT only to make a good case to compile a new Voters Register due to burnt BVD and BVR machines but also to conceal incriminating evidence of procurement malpractices against the E.C Chairperson in the ongoing procurement process for a new Biometric System.
We are therefore by this release sending a strong warning to the E.C Chairperson, that she would be held solely accountable for any fire at the E.C Headquarters from now till the 2020 elections are over.
The so called Prophet who is deliberately throwing this treacherous “prophecy” into the media to attach spiritual connotations to the impending crime so as to take the Public’s attention away from the real perpetrators of the crime would also not be spared in case there is any fire at the E.C head office,he would also be arrest and prosecuted as an accomplice to the crime.
We are by this release requesting an immediate fire audit of the E.C Headquarters by the National Fire Service and publicly come out with its report to assure the general public of the fire safety of the building.
We also want the Fire Service to put the E.C Headquarters under 24hours fire surveillance until the elections are over to avert any plans to set the building on fire any unscrupulous persons.
Finally the General Public and Patriotic staffs of the Commission must be on the look out for suspicious activities around the E.C Headquarters especially at night and notify the Police accordingly of any potential threat around the facility.
Together let us protect the sanctity of our Electoral Process.”He asserted.
