Kumasi | Police Seize Thumb Printed Ballot Papers, But Say They Are Fake


Thumb Printed Ballot PapersA combined team of police personnel in the Ashanti region have seized thumb printed ballot papers from a hotel in the Ashanti regional capital.

The retrieved presidential ballot papers had all been thumb printed in favour of the NDC’s candidate, John Dramani Mahama.

According to our checks, the police acting upon a tip-off from the controversial  Ashanti regional Chairman of the  NPP, Mr. Bernand Antwi Bosiako quickly moved in,  seized the materials and arrested one person in the process.

The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has however indicated that they know nothing about the case and  has called on the police to arrest chairman Wontumi to assist in investigations as to how he got the information.

Meanwhile, the Ashanti Regional Police PRO, Chief Inspector Tanko in an interview on Abusua Nkommo with Kwame Adinkrah  has revealed that the thumb printed ballot papers are fake since they do not have serial numbers  and called on the general public to remain calm.
