The New Patriotic Party (NPP), Campaign Chairman, Peter Mac Manu has stated that the NPP would prove the NDC's John Mahama did not obtain the total number of votes he was credited with.
According to him, that is the NPP's major objectives for heading into the election petition.
He maintains the NPP legal team of of between 10 to 12 lawyers is adequately prepared and ready to face the opposition party at the Supreme Court.
“We believe, and will prove in Supreme Court that even John Mahama did not receive the number of votes that have been credited to him,” he said.
The NDC filed a petition at the Supreme Court to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential and parliamentary polls.
The lawsuit follows weeks of countless street protests over alleged voter fraud and irregularities in the just-ended 2020 elections.
Reacting to the petition, the NPP’s director of communication, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, said the legal team of the president is ready to expose the emptiness of the petition and the continuous denial that Akufo-Addo indeed won the election “without any iota of doubt.”
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.
