Former president John Dramani Mahama has served notice to President Nana Akufo-Addo that he will kick him out of the Jubilee House after the December 7, 2020 elections.
In an address to Ghanaians on Facebook, the NDC flagbearer opined that a major defeat awaits the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and that no “amount of politically-engineered electoral register” will save them.
“No politically engineered register can save this government from the defeat that awaits it in December. With or without a new voters register, the NDC shall win the elections,” the NDC flagbearer said.

Reacting to the Supreme Court’s verdict that the Electoral Commission can go ahead to compile a new register without using the old voter’s ID card and birth certificates as references, Mr. Mahama said that will not save the government.
He also said the NDC was "deeply disappointed" in the verdict of the Supreme Court.
On Thursday, June 25, 2020, the apex court dismissed two suits that were seeking the use of the existing voter identification card and birth certificates as the source documents for the upcoming voter registration exercise.
The seven-member panel of the Supreme Court dismissed the case by the opposition NDC which wanted an order for the use of the existing voter ID card and one Mark Takyi-Benson, who wanted the use of a birth certificate as source documents for eligibility to register as a voter.
