National communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress ( NDC) Sammy Gyamfi has denied claims by President Akufo-Addo that former President John Mahama agreed to the amendment of article 55(3) of the 1992 Constitution to allow for the introduction of partisanship in our local government system, accusing the President of attempting “to use the former as a cover for the national embarrassment.”

President Akufo-Addo has withdrawn the referendum on whether or not political parties should take part in local government elections citing a lack of broad consensus due to poor consultations among key stakeholders.

In his address to the nation on the cancellation of the referendum last Sunday December 1, 2019, he alleged that former President John Dramani Mahama had agreed to the amendment of article  55(3). But Sammy Gyamfi has refuted the claim.

“For the records, it’s a barefaced lie that President Mahama agreed to the amendment of article 55(3) of the 1992 Constitution to allow for the introduction of partisanship in our local government system as alleged by President Akufo-Addo. The attempt to use JM as a cover for this national embarrassment will not wash,” he wrote in reaction to the president’s address.

Sammy Gyamfi has also claimed that the withdrawal of the referendum is a victory  of the NDC since it was campaigning for a “no” vote in the referendum as against the NPP’s “yes” vote campaign.
