The founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Atta Mills Institute, Koku Anyidoho, has recently been on the National Democratic Congress, NDC, for some of its decisions.
He has described as "mere politics", the decision by the opposition NDC to challenge the 2020 election results.
In a report filed by Peacefmonline, Anyidoho advised the NDC to desist from plunging the country into a state of anarchy with its actions.
Anyidoho added that in 2012 when Akufo-Addo and the NPP decided to go to court, they did not invalidate the results that were declared in favor of the NDC.
He, however, said whatever the NDC was doing is just politics and that, they are doing it to sustain their existence and presence.
“In 2012, when then candidate Akufo-Addo decided to go to court for eight months, he did not negate nor invalidate results declared at the time. So, whatever is happening today, we want to believe that it will pass, people will have to do it to sustain their presence and existence because it is politics,” he said.
Anyidoho added the NDC will not stop the inauguration of the president-elect and the eight parliament on 7 January, 2021.
Meanwhile, 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.
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.
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.
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.
