NDC warns the NPP not to start war in the country

NDC warns the NPP not to start war in the country

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has warned that if New Patriotic Party wants trouble, they will be ready to match the party boot for boot.

In an interview with Accra-based Adom FM, Koku Anyidoho, the deputy general secretary of the NDC, condemned the decision of the NPP to hold a press conference and declare that the party’s presidential candidate, Akufo-Addo has won the election.

According to him, the NPP's call on its supporters to go onto the streets and celebrate the victory is a recipe for violence.

Anyidoho claimed that NPP wanted to intimidate the Electoral Commission into declaring Akufo-Addo the winner when the party knew that John Mahama was leading in the elections.

He said if the NPP dared the NDC, they would regret it, stressing that they would fight and be tired.

He expressed confidence that Mahama was leading in the elections.

According to him, although some NDC MPs lost their seats in certain constituencies in the country, Mahama won in those constituencies.

He said the claim that Akufo-Addo had won the election by 53% was, therefore, false.

The NDC executive warned the NPP to be patient and allow the EC to declare the result so as not to spark violence.

Anyidoho swore that the NDC would not be intimidated into conceding what he called a non-existent defeat.

“It will not happen. We will wait till the end. We will wait till the Ec declares the result,” he vowed.

Meanwhile, all presidential candidates except Mahama have congratulated Akufo-Addo for winning the election.

Also, NDC says it's calculation of 250 constituencies show that Mahama is winning by 51 per cent.
