In a related development, the Minister of Communication, Dr. Omane Boama, has written to the National Communication Authourity (NCA) to demand an investigation to identify the owner of a phone number +233248497192, that was used for an intended electoral fraud in the Talensi election.
In a letter dated June 6, 2015, a copy of which is in the custody of the Times, it stated as follows: “ We write as a follow up to draw your attention to the above stated phone number which accidentally was used to make a phone call to Mr James Zuugah Tiigah the Upper East Regional Minister. Subsequently the caller sent two messages via Short Message Service (SMS) to the minister.
The content of the message bothers on an intended electoral malpractice which is being aborted. The Regional Minister brought the matter to my attention on Sunday, 5th July, 2015.
