“Stephen Ntim shouldn’t be in favor of Bawumia, Alan Kyerematen, Addai-Nimo, or any person. His duty is to superintend a free and fair election process. If every person should pass a quota, you make sure everyone does and become vigilant to ensure no one bribes someone so that, at the end of the elections, if it is Kennedy Agyapong or Alan Kyerematen that the people want, you all support the elected person. Finish; that’s all! That is what they are expected to do now, not more, not less,” he said.
