Former TV3 newscaster, Bridget Otoo, has congratulated the National Democratic Congress (NDC) despite the 2020 Election.
She said the NDC did creditably well in the 2020 election judging from their performance in 2016.
Prior to the announcement of the final results by the Electoral Commission (EC), the party leadership has raised questions about some of the results.
However, the EC chairperson, Jean Mensah declared President Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 elections.
And the award-winning former broadcaster who supported the NDC has reacted.
Bridget has heaped praises on the NDC party for their outstanding performance in the just-ended election.
In a post on Facebook, she wrote, "Dear NDC supporters, I know these are tough times but the journey of making Ghana a better place for everyone must continue. On the bright side, you have clearly performed beyond expectations. Not many gave the NDC a dog’s chance after the events of 2016 so please, stand proud.
You won the Greater Accra Region with 20 seats and swept all the seats in Upper East but 1. And that’s just a paragraph of this political story. This election was about progress and to that end, I am exceedingly proud of your efforts."
She added, "You have in me Bridget, a fan. I have come to know the NDC as a party that welcomes you regardless of your social status or which part of the country you come from.
So to all of you gallant men and women who came out to support the NDC as a party, and the whole electoral ticket headed by Mr John Mahama and Prof. Jane Naana Opoku, I say Thank You.
I have been extremely proud to support you and would easily do it again. I would like to end with this; the battle for 2024 begins today. Let not thy brooding last. Remember the lessons.
And most importantly, let’s work towards the victory of 2024. God bless you!!! #IvotedJohnMahama."
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.
