The Ghana Journalist Association cautions the media against fanning flame of tension leading to election related violence.
President of the association Roland Affail Monney also admonished politicians especially the NDC to desist from what he described as caustic comments targeted at the media which has the potential of causing disaffection.
Speaking on news file on Joy FM, Mr Monney urged the media to remain resolute in spite of the incessant attacks by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
So far, the Managing news editor of the crusading guide newspaper says that the results of presidential and parliamentary elections have been gazette. He believes it will only take a judgment from the Supreme Court to reverse the results of the elections.
Speaking on the same program, 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.
The international community has hailed Ghana for the 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.
In a statement, the Electoral Commission clearly acknowledged that the Chairperson, Mrs. Jean Mensah mistakenly used 13,433,573 as the total valid votes cast, which was not the case.
