The immediate past chairman of the National Peace Council, Most Rev. Emmanuel Asante, says any action that will jeopardise the peace of the country from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will not be tolerated.
Incumbent, President Nana Akufo-Addo, was declared the winner of the elections by the country’s Electoral Commission (EC) on Wednesday, December 9, 2020.
Mahama rejected the results of the 2020 elections, describing it as fundamentally flawed. He said 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.
Supporters of the NDC since the declaration of Akufo-Addo, the winner of the elections embarked on a series of demonstrations to express their displeasure over what they said was rigged polls nationwide.

Commenting on the development, Most Rev. Asante urged the NDC and its flagbearer to desist from inciting supporters onto the streets and follow the laid down legal channels for the resolution of electoral disputes.
According to him, there was nothing wrong with Mahama and the NDC rejecting the outcome of the polls.
“They have every right to express their views, but they do not have the right to compromise the peace of this country in expressing their views,” the former chairman of the Peace Council was quoted as saying in a Myjoyonline article.

Private legal practitioner and member of the legal team of the party, Abraham Amaliba disclosed this to Accra-based Starr FM.
He said the discoveries made by the party during the fact-finding mission would shock Ghanaians.
