The opposition party's director of elections, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, claims the 2020 elections were "stolen for Akufo-Addo.
The NDC's firebrand alleged that former President Mahama won the elections, but the ruling New Patriotic Party used the military and police to sabotage the results.
"The elections were stolen, when the NPP realized they were losing, they deployed thugs wearing military uniforms, some wearing beards with earrings, and they went and shot innocent people and stole votes," he alleged.
Responding to the allegations, General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu, insisted that Nana Akufo-Addo legitimately won the elections.

IGP speaks against bribe-taking
The Inspector-General of Police has advised officers against the extortion of bribes at checkpoints.
Ever since George Akuffo Dampare became Ghana's Acting IGP, he visited several police patrol stations to motivate police officers.
He wants police officers not to accept bribes from people, saying it will never change their lives.
"Let's shame anybody who thinks that the Police officer cannot stop taking favors that are 100 Ghana, let's shame them, even if someone wants to give you a gift, tell the person that it is enough because that gift cannot transform your life. What can transform your life is the blessings of God," Dr. Dampare said.
