NDC’S NEWFOUND EVIDENCE FROM MARCEL BUGARR IS LUDICROUSLY WEAK AND CONTRADICTORY
The NDC, I have consistently made this point, has a very weak research team.
At a press conference held yesterday to ‘expose’ Jean Mensa about claims that the vendors of the biometric verification machines had written to the EC to move on to a new BVR system since the ones sold to the electoral body are obsolete and have reached their end of life.
In disputing the letter written to the EC by STL, the vendors of the BVR equipment, the NDC, at the press conference said a correspondence between an activist of the party and one Marcel Bugarr, an officer working with the manufacturers of the BVR equipment being used by the EC indicates that the machines have not reached their end-of-life as the Electoral Commission sought to suggest.
Sammy Gyamfi, on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo ran riot with this same information purported to be from email correspondences between Yayra Deku and Marcel Bugarr. However, the same Marcel Bugarr, as Abdul Malik Kweku Baako revealed, wrote a letter to STL insisting that the BVRs were outdated and needed to be dispensed with by the Electoral Commission.
It, therefore, goes to show that, if the so-called correspondence between the NDC activist and Bugarr is to be believed, Marcel Bugarr has contradicted himself. The same person in an earlier letter said the machines were unfit for purpose but has turned around to tell the NDC activist the machines are fit for purpose.
One issue that strikes me is the angle that the same Marcel Bugarr said in his latest correspondence with Yayra Deku that they are shocked at the procurement processes of the Electoral Commission in relation to the purchasing of new BVRs.
It is not as though the EC procured the BVR kits from the manufacturers for Bugarr to express shock at the procurement processes. What business does Marcel Bugarr and his team have with Ghana’s Electoral Commission to be making this submission?
It is either the NDC is fabricating this whole story or the Marcel Bugarr guy has been heavily paid to do this hatchet job. The register will be compiled. They can continue with their rebellion on the streets.
