Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, a candidate for national chairperson of the major opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has defended a leaked recording that has gone viral on social media.

Asiedu Nketiah, the current NDC General Secretary, was overheard telling some party members in the Ashanti Region on the aforementioned tape that the NDC would have to challenge the results of the 2020 elections in the Supreme Court without the results that had been tallied because its information technology (IT) system had crashed.

He stated that Osei Kwame Griffiths, the party’s director of IT, had informed the party leadership that the software used to compile the results had collapsed after receiving data from five areas.

He has received criticism from certain NDC members for making this information public just one week before the NDC national congress.

However, Mr. Asiedu Nketiah, who was appearing on Dwaboase on TV XYZ, put up a valiant defense, claiming that the information included in the leaked recording is not news.

“These are matters I have spoken about from time immemorial as the party’s General Secretary,” he said. “I told the Supreme Court the same thing when I mounted the witness box in the 2020 Election Petition.”

“This is nothing new except the people want to make a political meal out of it,” he said.

He stated, “When I was questioned about the NDC’s collated results, I answered I have none, in addition to the fact that collating results is not what the NDC does.”

The NDC can only compile data for its own internal uses, he added, adding that it is the EC’s responsibility to do so.

He said that “we compile results for internal use, not for the EC and the court.”

Additionally, he stated that the NDC sought to contest the EC’s results because it had compiled a number of results improperly.

He asserted that “the data are inconsistent” and advised listeners to “go and check what happened in Techiman South Constituency.”
