It is not known yet what led the group to demonstrate against the former president who polled over six million votes for the party in the last election.

The NDC lost the elections to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and proceeded to court.

Eventually, the case was thrown out as it was described as one lacking merit.

The court, therefore, emphasised that President Akufo-Addo is thus the winner of the elections.

In other news, the NDC has expelled its former Central Regional Chairman of the party, Allotey Jacobs.

Allotey Jacobs has been sacked upon recommendations by the party's Disciplinary Committee following a case of misconduct and anti-party behaviour brought against him.

In a statement on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia explained that the party's Disciplinary Committee found Allotey Jacobs guilty of the above-mentioned offences and recommended his immediate expulsion.
