Former President John Dramani Mahama has said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will take a legitimate action against what he describes as a travesty of justice in the just-ended presidential and parliamentary elections.
In the view of the presidential candidate of the NDC in the 2020 polls, his party won the presidential and parliamentary elections, however, the results have been manipulated in favour of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Addressing the nation from the headquarters of the NDC in Accra on Thursday, December 10 he said: “The facts and figures on the pink sheets available to us indicate that numerous steps have been taken to manipulate the elections in favour of the incumbent president.”
“We will take legitimate steps to reverse this travesty of justice,” he revealed.
He added “There is no doubt that every Ghanaian in this country voted for change. We did so both In the presidential and parliamentary elections.
“I am a staunch believer in the experiment of democracy, a system of governance that allows the ultimate decision making power to rest in the hands of you the good people of Ghana. We the people who with an eye towards the future we will like for our dear country elect representatives to forward and realise that vision. Government serves at the choice and direction of the people of this great nation.”
He further called on the media and observer missions to present what he describes as the true account of what transpired in the elections.
“Be resolute and present a fair account of what has transpired in this period,” he said.
