On-air personality., Gifty Anti, has heaped praises on former president John Mahama after gallantly losing the 2020 elections to President Nana Akufo-Addo.
On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the Electoral Commission (EC) chairperson, Jean Mensa, declared Akufo-Addo as the winner of the election.
Per the final results, Akufo-Addo polled 6,730, 413 votes representing (51.59%), to defeat Mahama who managed 6, 214, 889 votes, which represented 47.366%. Christian Kwabena Andrews of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM), a first-time runner, came third with 105, 565 votes being 0.805%.
The Conventions Peoples Party (CPP) candidate, Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, got 12,215 votes (0.093%).
Akua Donkor of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) got 5,575 votes (0.042%).
Henry Herbert Lartey of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP) got 3,574 (0.027%).
Hassan Ayariga of the All peoples Congress (APC) got 7,140 (0.054%). The Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG's) Percival Kofi Akpaloo polled 7,690 (0.059%).
However, Mahama is officially yet to accept the final results from the EC but Gifty has saluted him.
In a post she wrote on Instagram, "I salute you sir. Much respect!!! You fought hard!! President John Dramani Mahama, You really did marvelously well!! You have made history in your own way. I don’t know what your next move will be, but I wish you well and I pray for long life, good health and wisdom from above, for you. History, will be kinder to you!!."
Meanwhile, the Minority Leader of Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, has said the National Democratic Congress (NDC), will not accept the outcome of the 2020 Elections as declared by the EC.
He said overwhelming evidence available to the NDC makes it impossible for Akufo-Addo and the NPP to be declared the winner of the 2020 Elections.
Haruna was addressing the media on the party's position on the results.
According to him, the party is informed of some electoral malpractices engaged in by the EC.
These, he said, undermine the country's democracy, something the NDC can never endorse.
He narrated, for instance, that before declaring the results, the EC Chairperson, Jean Mensah, sent the NDC supporters in the strong room on an errand.
While on their way, Mensah went ahead to hold a press conference in which she made the declaration.
