LMVCA denies urging supporters to “throw bombs”

The pressure group known as “Let My Vote Count Alliance” (LMVCA) has said that reports of leading group members calling on supporters to throw bombs to attract the international community’s attention to its claim of electoral fraud are nothing more than “lies and deception.”

The group has also denied reports of threatening Supreme Court judges over the New Patriotic Party’s petition contesting the outcome of the 2012 presidential election.

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

Police are already investigating some group leaders and key speakers from the Taifa event over the 'explosive' statements they made on that platform.

However, in a statement issued on Wednesday February 13, 2013, the group 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.

It 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,” the statement insisted.
