A member of the legal team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abraham Amaliba, says the party is ready to challenge the results of the just-ended general elections.
President Akufo-Addo was reelected as Ghana’s president in the Monday, December 7, 2020, general elections.
Former president and presidential candidate of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama rejected the results of the 2020 elections.
Mahama stated without mincing words that he was not going to accept the EC's results since he believes it is flawed.
He went on to state that Jean Mensa's declaration of the results was a clear violation of the law because it did not follow the rules set out to conduct the elections.
But, the Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) certified the presidential results as declared by the EC.
It said the figures it collected independently validated what the EC announced on Wednesday, December 9, 2020.
Speaking to Accra-based Starr FM, Amaliba said Ghanaians would be shocked with the discoveries made by the fact-finding team of the major opposition party.
"You see huge votes given to Akufo-Addo and reduction of votes for John Mahama and these are some of the things we’ve come across. We’ll put it in the public domain soon,” the private legal practitioner said.
“We don’t want to go to court on flimsy grounds. We want to go to court with evidence that can stand the test of time so that even when we lose, in the eyes of Ghanaians, we won,” he added.
He said the team wrapped up its fact-finding mission on Sunday, December 13, 2020.
