Former Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Koku Anyidoho, says President Nana Akufo-Addo has “a legitimate mandate” from the majority of Ghanaians in the December 2020 presidential elections.
The founder of the Atta Mills Institute expressed hope that the president will do all he can to build a better Ghana and “leave lasting legacies.”
Former President John Dramani Mahama, the presidential candidate of the NDC in the 2020 elections rejected the outcome of the polls.
According to him, the elections were rigged in favour of the president, and that per data available to him “there was no winner” in the elections.
He has since filed a petition before the Supreme Court, calling for a rerun to be ordered between him and President Akufo-Addo.
Akufo-Addo defeated Mahama in the election to secure another four-year term; collecting 51.302% of the votes cast against the latter’s 47.359%.
The votes difference between the two candidates stood at 517, 231, representing a four percentage point, one of the highest since 1996.
Anyidoho who earlier questioned the strength of Mahama's case in the ongoing election petition trial, further tweeted: “For goodness sake: With no concrete evidence to back any case, Let's stop tickling ourselves and farting in public because the fart stinks badly!!! Fuuun fuuuuun!!”
In other news on YEN.com.gh, a Ghanaian, Portia Kissi Adu, who travelled to neighbouring Nigeria recently, has made a horrifically disheartening revelation about Ghana’s COVID-19 fight.
Adu said she travelled to the most populous African country with fake COVID-19 test results.
Adu’s predicament began when the officials of the airline rejected her COVID-19 test results from the renowned Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research.
The officials forced her to take another test which she agreed to avoid being late for her appointment in Lagos, Nigeria.
Adu said she was shocked to the marrow when the officials instructed her to board the flight and moments later brought to her printed COVID-19 test results without any sample taken from her.
Narrating her ordeal to Accra-based Starr FM, monitored by YEN.com.gh on Wednesday, February 3, 2021, she said: “When I boarded the flight, a gentleman brought my results and asked that I pay GHS700 which I obliged to pay via mobile money.”
