Misleading! No evidence electorate will vote for/against NDC

Claim: A 24-second video shared on social media features an electorate in the Assin North by-election claiming to have received GHC 100.00 from the National Democratic Congress and was forced to take an oath to vote for them. The post also said the electorate vowed to vote against the NDC in the by-election.


DUBAWA Ghana finds the post misleading and the caption containing untruths. In the original video, posted by Accra-based UTV Ghana, the electorate said he was induced by the National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party. 

Although he said that he was made to take an oath, the electorate did not indicate which of the two leading parties was responsible for making him take the oath. Again, he did not mention the party he would vote for in the election.

“I have received GHC 300. I gained GHC 200 from NPP and 100 from NDC but one of them has invoked a curse I do not tolerate. The monies being distributed are all from corruption-related activities. We are all corrupt in this country, so why would you want to curse me for receiving your money earned through stealing.”

When asked by the reporter whom he was going to vote for, he said, “I will vote, but I know who I will vote for,” he said in the 40-second video posted by UTV Ghana on Twitter. 

Verdict: Misleading
