There seems to be mounting tension in Ashaiman after the New Patriotic Party's, NPP, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was declared winner of the 2020 presidential elections.
About three days ago, news broke of residents in Ashaiman burning tyres and hitting the streets over the Electoral Commission's declaration.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region, Ernest Henry Norgbey, has stated that party members in the constituency will continue protesting until the EC corrects the anomaly.
According to a Citinews report, the MP-elect said the verdict as declared by the EC is flawed and not credible.
He said, he together with his supporters will therefore protest daily to show their disapproval of the election results.
“We just organised ourselves to do a peaceful demonstration to show Ghanaians that the people of Ashiaman will not sleep for the incompetence of Jean Mensa to steal the verdict for Nana Akufo-Addo. That is what we are witnessing today, that we want our votes to be counted,” he said.
He also added that the Sene East, Techiman South, and the other seats that according to him were stolen from the NDC, needs to be handed back.
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.
Mahama revealed that the party will audit the outcomes of the poll to inform its next line of action.
