The NDC's presidential candidate John Mahama officially rejected the results of the 2020 presidential election after the declaration.

According to him, there were violations of the law governing the election and thus makes EC's declaration tantamount to illegality.

The former president while addressing the media on Thursday, December 10, also listed concerns he had about the general conduct of the election.

The party later urged its supporters to protest the results as declared by the EC and those in Ashaiman seem to have taken the lead.

Speaking on the demonstration in Ashaiman, Stonebwoy who hails from the area advised the people to end their protests.

According to Stonebwoy, the protests will not bring a solution to the problems and the people must leave the politicians to deal with their problems.

For Stonebwoy, what was within the people's power was to cast their votes for the party of their choice and they have done just that.

"Ashaiman, My People Please all these ones Cannot Solve anything the politicians themselves know better what To do. Where our small power counts is to vote and we have done just that. Don't allow urself to be used by heart let's KEEP THE PEACE. and Go about our hustle it Go better."

Meanwhile, EC Chairperson Jean Mensa has made a rare appearance on social media after declaring the 2020 presidential election results.

In a video, Mrs Mensa has denied reports that she has travelled out of the country after announcing Nana Akufo-Addo as the winner.

According to the EC boss, even though she has a valid visa to the United States, she loves Ghana and will not travel out at this moment.
