Speaking on Joy News, the political commentator condemned John Mahama for not accepting the elections results. He wonders why the very EC results he accepted in the 206 elections is now being contested in 2020.

“Fortunately, he knows what to do. He has to go to court. That’s the avenue left for him. Indeed, he was the beneficiary of a similar incident – 2013 election petition. He was the incumbent – Akufo Addo and Jake Obetsebi Lamptey were disputing, they went ti court, we all saw what happened,” he told the host of Newsfile, Sampson Lardi Ayenini.
