- Former president Mahama has advised the NPP to hand over power if the NDC wins the 2020 elections
- He added that the NPP should do so peacefully and refrain from going to court
- According to him, he wishes President Akufo-Addo would consider contesting the 2020 elections so they could 'clash' again
Former president John Dramani Mahama has advised the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to refrain from going to court if the party loses the 2020 general elections.
Speaking to delegates and party faithfuls at Koforidua in the Eastern Region, he added that the NPP should wholeheartedly accept the outcome of the elections just as he did in the year 2016.
Per a report by Citinewsroom.com, he said “I want NPP to know that in 2020, if they lose the elections and the NDC becomes victorious, they should just hand the power over to us.
We do not want them to repeat what they did in 2012. After winning the 2012 elections, they took us to court for almost a year, disputing the election results.
Today, I want to tell them we do not want them to repeat that this time around, if we become victorious in 2020 we want them to hand over peacefully.”
He also took the opportunity to urge the delegates to work hard to ensure that the NDC returns to power.
Mahama went ahead to promise that Ghanaians would enjoy when the NDC is voted back into office.
He revealed that he has been to eight regions, and the Eastern Region is the ninth.
In his interactions with Ghanaians, he was constantly told that there is hardship in the country.
He also urged President Akufo-Addo to contest for the 2020 elections so that he can face him again.
To him, the 2020 elections would determine which of them is the winner, given their previous encounters as presidential candidates.
