The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has ridiculed the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for submitting an Election Petition fraught with errors to the Supreme Court.
According to the party, the NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, who grounds his petition on supposed errors made by the Electoral Commission (EC), is caught in the same net.
The NPP also expressed shock the reliefs that Mr. Mahama’s is seeking from the Court includes a request for a run-off between himself and the EC.
Mr. Yaw Buaben Asamoa, Communications Director of the ruling NPP who was responding to the Petition condemned the NDC for continuing to incite its followers to violence.
He said, “It is also unfortunate that even after filing the Petition in court, the NDC led by John Dramani Mahama continues to incite supporters to pour onto the streets to cause chaos and anarchy.”
“The NPP wishes to assure its supporters and the People of Ghana that the Legal Team of H.E. the President is ready to expose the emptiness of John Mahama’s Petition and the NDC’s denial of the electoral truth that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo indeed won this election without any iota of doubt.”
The NPP’s response, he said, will show the NDC has not presented any material evidence of value to the Supreme Court to supports its false claim.
“They lied to their supporters that they had won and started referring to John Dramani Mahama falsely as the President-Elect.”
“Now they have backtracked, settling futilely for a run-off which they themselves know will not happen,” he said.
According to him, the NDC have attempted and continue to use lies, threats, violence, and intimidation to seek forlornly to overrule the manifest will of the people as freely expressed on 7th December 2020.
He, however, expressed confidence that the facts and figures as presented in court, even by the NDC will easily, in a transparent and indisputable manner, reaffirm the expressed will of the voting public that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo won the 2020 Presidential Election ‘one-touch’ and convincingly so.
