The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has punched holes into the election petition of the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, saying it was full of errors and empty.
In a statement, the governing party said Mahama’s petition at the Supreme Court won’t wash because he presented “no material evidence of value in Court to support its blatantly false claims regarding the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.”
As part of his reliefs being sought, Mahama wants the Supreme Court to restrain his opponent Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo from holding himself out as president-elect and call for a re-run by annulling the results of Electon 2020.
The statement signed by the party’s director of communication, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, said:
“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.”
“Our response will show that the NDC has presented no material evidence of value in Court to support its blatantly false claims regarding the results of the 2020 Presidential Election. 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. They 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.
“We are absolutely confident that the facts and figures as presented in court, even by the NDC, will very 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.”
