Former President Mahama has relished the election of Alban Bagbin as Speaker of the 8TH Parliament of Ghana.

Addressing all 137 NDC legislators at a thanksgiving party, John Dramani Mahama, adviced all members of parliament to hold true to the tenets of democracy and ensure that they put the current Akufo-Addo administration in check.

“This is what the unity of purpose can do. There is no force that can defeat a people who are together and united and acting with a single purpose – and that is what we saw on the floor of Parliament. It was not a fight for yourselves. It was a fight to protect the democracy of Ghana,” he stated.

So far, John Dramani Mahama has called for an independent audit of all the Pink Sheets from the various polling stations in the country.

He recently told observers from the Electoral Commission that he will gladly concede defeat should the audit be done. The opposition NDC has also dared the electoral commission to make public, copies of pink sheets of the official declaration of results for Techiman South Constituency.

The NDC is insisting it won the parliamentary race in the constituency where 2 people were shot dead during the polls.

The minority leader Haruna Iddrisu says all attempts to get the commission furnish the party with the declaration sheets have proven futile. He alleges the commission’s failure to produce the declared results is an indication the commission manipulated figures to favor of the governing NPP.
