The Upper East Regional Communications Officer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sanusi Issah, says he is very disappointed in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) over what he described as its failure to prove earlier claims that President Akufo-Addo was not validly elected in the 2020 general elections.
Flagbearer of the NDC, John Mahama, has filed a petition at the Supreme Court challenging the outcome of the December 7, 2020, presidential elections; which saw the Electoral Commission declaring NPP’s Nana Akufo-Addo winner with 51.3 percents of the valid votes cast while Mr. Mahama came second with 47.7 percent.
The lawsuit followed weeks of street protests over alleged voter fraud and irregularities in the elections and the subsequent declaration of the results.
But speaking on A1 Radio’s Daybreak Upper East program on Tuesday, the NPP communicator said “I’m lucky am not a member of the NDC. If I were, I would have left the party by now; because of the way and manner in which they have misused their supporters. How on earth will somebody come to you and tell you ‘we have won the election. It’s just the Electoral Commissioner who twisted the results and declared in favor of Nana Akufo-Addo. Go on the streets and demonstrate.’
Now opportunity is given to the same you to show us how you won the election, and you say I’ve left my figures home. I can’t bring my figure to court.”
While insisting President Akufo-Addo legitimately won the 2020 election, Mr. Issah believes the NDC and Mr. Mahama have no evidence to support their claims of malfeasance in the polls.
