The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has alleged an attack of the Member of Parliament elect of the party, Dorcas Affo Toffey, at her residence on Friday.
Speaking at a press conference, a Communications officer for the NDC Jomoro constituency, Patrick Ellonu, narrated the incident claiming it all started with a “so-called” float to Bonyere where they attacked the MP-elect for Jomoro, honorable Dorcas Toffey at her residence.
According to him, the leaders of the float include; the defeated MP for Jomoro Paul Essien and the disappointed MCE nominee and constituency secretary, Eric Muah.
He claims that when the NPP hooligans got to the residence of the MP-elect, they went berserk and were attacking anyone they suspected to be a member of the NDC for no reason.
Patrick Ellonu further alleged that the hooligans who claimed they were having a walk were wielding weapons such as pepper sprays, tasers cutlasses, knives, axes and chains. One would wonder if they were going to war.
“Their motive was exhibited in the full glare of the public when they forced their way through the gate of Hon Dorcas Toffey's residence. They were however resisted by the personal security in her house who tried to prevent them from entering the house but couldn't succeed because of the number of people who were forcing their way through with deadly weapons,” he claimed.
So far, officials of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have not responded to these claims. The Party has, therefore, denounced all claims of violence stating that the general elections have been free, fair and peaceful.
The international community has hailed Ghana for peaceful elections. A special convoy from the European Union (EU), also described the elections as generally peaceful.
Meanwhile, John Mahama has insisted he will not accept the results of a “flawed election”. He told supporters at the party head office that he will seek all legitimate legal means to reverse the declaration made by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa.
The Electoral Commission of Ghana took back the results of the presidential polls that was declared on December 9, 2020, after admitting it contained some errors.
A new post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the morning of Thursday, December 10, 2020, on the verified Twitter handle of the commission reveals some corrections were made.
