Despite the rejection of the Electoral Commision's declaration of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the president elect by the NDC, the governing NPP is still in a jubilant mood.
Per the EC's discretion, the president-elect has thanked Ghanaians for voting for him to continue leading the nation.
In view of that, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has scheduled an Islamic thanksgiving prayer for President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President-elect, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
The thanksgiving prayers will be taking place at the Central Mosque at Abossey Okai in Accra.
According to a report filed by JoyNews, the thanksgiving prayer is to express gratitude to the Almighty Allah for a successful election and the re-election of Akufo-Addo and Bawumia.
As this is an all important event at the mosque, the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu will lead the thanksgiving prayers after Jummah (Friday congregational prayers)..
The President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Vice President-elect, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will be in attendance.
Accordingh to the report, on Sunday, December 13, 2020, a Christian version of the thanksgiving service has also been slated.
Meanwhile, the member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has warned former president John Mahama after the Electoral Commission (EC) declared Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 elections.
On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the EC chairperson, Jean Mensa announced Akufo-Addo as the winner after defeating Mahama.
Prior to the EC's official announcement, Mahama in his earlier press briefing raised questions regarding votes that were tricking in.
However, following the EC's announcement a video of Kennedy Agyapong daring Mahama has surfaced online.
