The aftermath of the 2020 general election declaration brought about a lot of chaos and misunderstanding which led to the dead of some people.

At least seven persons died in election-related violence during the polls.

The brewing tensions have been greatly criticized by the peace council, and members of the ruling New Patriotic Party.

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Mahama, is worried about the fact that the violence would rub off on the democratic gains of Ghana.

According to Mahama, the election-related violence has showed that the country was “moving backwards, instead of not forward” just as envisioned by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

Addressing Ghanaians on the election petition and other related matters, former president Mahama made these known.

“We are unravelling the very fabric of our democracy. We are risking the loss of three decades of work of progress,” he added in an address after filing his petition earlier on Wednesday.

In Mahama’s view, such imagery resembled the turbulent times in Ghana’s democratic history that he thought were in the past.

Meanwhile, John Dramani Mahama says his refusal to concede defeat in the 2020 polls was borne out of principle rather than an insatiable desire for power.

Addressing Ghanaians on Wednesday, December 30, 2020, after officially filing a petition to challenge the outcome of the elections at the Supreme Court, Mahama said he knew what it was to concede.

According to the presidential candidate of the NDC, when he lost the 2016 elections, he conceded not simply in the interest of peace and democracy, but because he respected the will of the people.
