In Kumasi, a similar incident took place, as women supporting the party in the region, took to the streets to protest over the Electoral Commission's results.

Dressed in red and black attire, the aggrieved women reechoed former President John Dramani Mahama’s claims that the election was flawed.

The women described the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) Jean Mensa’s posture before, during, and after the polls as “shameful”.

Mahama rejected the results of the 2020 elections, describing it as fundamentally flawed, arguing that the declaration was a clear violation of the law because the commission did not follow the rules set out to conduct the elections.

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.
