The Electoral Commission has disassociated itself from the declaration of parliamentary primaries results of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Yendi constituency.

According to the EC, it has not declared results for the Yendi Constituency in the just-ended NPP Parliamentary elections.

“The Electoral Commission wishes to inform the General Public that, it has not declared results for the Yendi Constituency in the just ended NPP Parliamentary elections”.

A press statement by the Acting Head, Public Affairs of the Electoral Commission, Micheal Boadu, read “The attention of the Electoral Commission has been drawn to a video circulating on social media, depicting a gentleman declaring results of the just ended New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries in the Yendi Constituency in favor of the incumbent”.

The EC revealed that Seven hundred and Eighty-Five (785) voters voted, out of Seven hundred and Ninety-Four (794) registered voters and that the counting of ballots for the incumbent, Hon. Farouk Aliu Mahama was disrupted when the Presiding Officer had counted Two hundred and Ninety-Six (296) votes in his favour.

“Unfortunately, the destruction of Four hundred and Eighty-Nine (489) ballots which remained to be counted, made it impossible for the Presiding Officer to complete the collation and declare the results.”

Meanwhile, the 3rd National Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party(NPP), Alhaji Osman Masawudu, declared Farouk Aliu Mahama as the parliamentary candidate elect for the NPP in the 2024 general election after a consultation with the regional and national executives of the party.
