A popular communicator of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and one-time presidential aspirant, Stephen Atubiga has faulted former president John Dramani Mahama’s 2020 campaign manager, Prof. Joshua Alabi for not declaring Mahama as the winner of the just-ended 2020 presidential elections which saw the incumbent, President Akufo Addo retaining his seat for another 4-year term.
According to Atubiga who is an ex-convict, it is the duty of Prof. Alabi, as campaign manager to use the figures collated at the party’s collation center to declare his candidate as winner of elections, even before the Electoral Commission’s official declaration.
“A good campaign manager was supposed to declare his candidate winner in 24hrs at most after election before EC does,” Atubiga wrote in lengthy Facebook post sighted by your favourite news website, GhanaVanguard.com.
Mr. Atubiga is also of the view that Prof. Alabi should have seen to it that the results collated at the NDC party’s collation center were immediately sent to various media houses to be put out in the public domain.
“…also working with party to send collation results of JDM to all media houses immediately after declaration at various constituencies and regions. Is a responsibility through campaign manager to trumpet his candidate’s results,” he added.
