The Northern Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ibrahim Mobila, has instructed the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa, to declare former president John Dramani Mahama president – elect within two days.
Addressing the media during a demonstration in Tamale, he said the party will decide what to do if Jean Mensa does not change the results in favor of the NDC.
I am here to tell all the people of the Northern Region that we won the elections, we beg the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, that it should not bring confusion to the country, so we tell her to come out immediately and change the results on Friday of otherwise, we will decide for our incoming president, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, ” – He said.
Sympathizers of the opposition National Democratic Congress has taken to the streets of Tamale in the Northern Region to protest the declaration of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo – Addo as president – elect in the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections.
The demonstration that took place in the center of the city registered a large turnout as participants sang war songs.
The national vice chairman of the main opposition National Democratic Congress, Sofo Azorka, has also said that on January 7, 2021, the party will swear in John Dramani Mahama.
“We will swear in John Mahama next month, January 7, where the people will be sworn in in Accra. ” Meanwhile, this is not the first demonstration by members of the opposition since the electoral body announced the results of the December 7 elections.
The first of many was after minority leader Haruna Iddrisu told his supporters that the NDC does not accept the results of the presidential elections announced by the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) Madam Jean Mensa.
At a press conference, Haruna Iddrisu expressed his reservations about the form and manner in which the polls were carried out, hence the rejection.
We reject the 2020 presidential elections announced by the chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa. We also want to notify that the blatant effort to even deny us a parliamentary majority will be fiercely resisted, “said the Tamale South lawmaker.
In Bolgatanga and Tamale, for example, hundreds of supporters were seen in the streets burning car tires in disapproval of the election results.
Apart from that, Ashaiman supporters and the opposition NDC Women’s Wing took to the streets Tuesday to express their displeasure against the election results. However, the NDC maintained that they intend to hold a peaceful protest on an ongoing basis until their votes are counted.
