The National Organiser for National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Hamidu Akamba says Jean Mensa and her deputy commissioner Bossman Asare are scheming to rig the elections for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Joshua Akamba disclosed that the NPP wants to undermine the electoral process with its diabolic schemes owing to the fact that the ruling party has lost touch with the people whom they promised heaven on earth.
