This claim was coming from Aseidu Nketia on the back of earlier claims made by the opposition NDC that they had won a majority of the seats in parliament.
Aseidu Nketia maintained earlier information put out in the public by DBC members including Sammy Gyamfi and Elvis Afriyie Ankrah.
While addressing party faithful and the media at the NDC headquarters, Aseidu Nketia opined that the EC was going to declare Mahama winner of the 2020 election.
He is noted as saying: "I believe that by tomorrow morning, President John Dramani Mahama would be declared the elected president".
Aseidu Nketia went on to call on all electorate to rise up and protect their vote so that the election does not go to the wrong candidate.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) has announced that it will declare the results of the just-ended 2020 presidential election at 5 pm today, December 8, 2020.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on citinews, the declaration will be done at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
The Chairperson of the Commission, Jean Mensa, is the one who serves as the returning officer for the presidential polls.
The announcement will come 24 hours after the close of polls on December 7 as promised by the Commission.
The National Democratic Congress, in particular, as well as many Ghanaians was skeptical of the EC’s 24-hour target.
