ELECTION 2016: My account was hacked – Sam George

The MP-elect for the Ningo-Prampram constituency Samuel George Nartey has denied knowledge of any message sent from his Facebook page to congratulate NPP Flagbearer Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo for winning the December 7th elections.

Below is the congratulatory message that was posted on his Facebook page early hours of Friday morning:





But Sam George in a quick response on Ahotor 92.3fm this morning, confirmed indeed his Facebook account has been hacked, and therefore stated emphatically that he was not responsible for the message that was written on his Facebook page. He further explained that, his Tweeter account has been linked to his Facebook wall and that is how come the same massage was sighted on his Tweeter handle as result. He has since taken the necessary action to prevent the hackers from further reaching his account.

There has been media reports of cyber hacking of Ghana’s electoral commission website and other established news websites and other portals as Ghanaian’s patiently awaits official results of this years polls by the EC.

Nana Akufo-Addo has been projected to win the 2016 Presidential election although the Electoral Commission has not yet declared the results of the polls.

Sam George beat one of Ghana’s longest serving MPs, Enoch Teye Mensah to emerge as the candidate for the Ningo-Prampram constituency and eventually beat his closest opponent in the parliamentary elections with 10272 votes.
