LMVCA denies making “bomb-throwing” statements

Pressure group, “Let My Vote Count Alliance” has described as “lies and deception”, reports to the effect that, some leading members of the group called on its supporters to throw bombs, to attract the international community over its claim of electoral fraud.

The group has also denied reports of threatening judges of the Supreme Court, over the NPP’s petition challenging the outcome of the December elections.

LMVCA has come under heavy bashing following its official launch and the maiden rally held at the Taifa Norway Park, in the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency early January, 2013.

Some of its leaders and key speakers at the Taifa rally are already being investigated by the Police, the ‘explosive’ statements made on that platform.

The group however, in a statement issued on Wednesday February 13, 2013, said: “Statements on our platforms twisted and spinned (sic) by unprofessional media outlets and the accompanying hypocrisy, will not stand”.

“We are calling on the good people of Ghana to reject those twisted statements as outright falsehood. The group has never, and will never threaten judges of the Supreme Court; neither has the group ever called on its supporters to throw bombs. These are absolute lies and deception.

“The let my vote count alliance is committed to deepening democracy through the pursuit of justice by legitimate and legal means. This is because we believe firmly that truth exists; only falsehood is fabricated. We are committed and we stand for the truth and justice,” the statement emphasised.

The statement also stressed that, “no amount of vain threats from our detractors will deter us or cause us to wobble on the path to the pursuit of justice. We remain firm and resolute that the 2012 elections were rigged massively for John Mahama”.

“We want to state on record and re-emphasize our position as firmly articulated by the honorable Titus Nii Kwatei Glover, a leading member of the group, and also a Member of Parliament for Tema East on the Friday 9th February 2013 in Tema, “If you touch one, you’ve touched all”.

“We will march forth in our legitimate quest for justice to be served to the good people of Ghana by rallying support for the pursuit of justice and push through for drastic electoral reforms in our electoral commission”.
