A heated interview by broadcast journalist of GhOne Television, Serwaa Amihere, with the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has got social media talking.
In this spirited interaction, the host, Serwaa, is heard interrogating the NDC general secretary on the recent protests by NDC supporters across the country. With reported cases of angry supporters burning tires on the streets and defying orders from the police, Serwaa sought to find out if Asiedu Nketia indeed sanctioned such protests.
Responding to her in a retaliatory tone, the General Secretary brushed off the question, rather, asking the host if burning of tires could be compared to the killing of innocent lives at the Techiman South constituency.
The video of this conversation, got posted on Twitter by Celebrity Blogger – Ameyaw Debrah – and has since gone viral.
Meanwhile, Paramount Chief of the Techiman Traditional Area in the Bono East Region, Oseadeeyo Akumfi Ameyaw, has condemned the shooting incident that led to the death of two people in the area during the just ended elections. He observed under no circumstance should innocent citizens be shot-dead in the manner it occurred in Techiman.
Election results declared by the Returning Officer to the President – Jean Mensa – confirms that John Mahama was unable to garner 50 plus one votes. The results show that John Mahama polled 6,214,889 while Nana Addo polled 6,730,413 votes.
The opposition NDC has fiercely rejected the results of the election. John Mahama has described it as flawed and rigged. Party supporters have also picketed at the headquarters of the Electoral Commission on various occasions against the results.
Political scientists at the Department of Political Science of the University of Ghana argue that forming a parallel government is unconstitutional. Such acts can even trigger treasonable offences.
The Managing news editor of the crusading guide newspaper says that the results of presidential and parliamentary elections have been gazette. He believes it will only take a judgment from the Supreme Court to reverse the results of the elections.
