Former President John Dramani Mahama says the 2020 general election is the worse in Ghana's election history.

John Mahama believes the presidential and parliamentary elections were not transparent and fair.

He was disappointed that the Supreme Court did not address the issues despite the election petition hearing.

The former president made this remark in a media interview during his "Thank You" tour in the Central Region.

"It's one of the worst we've had since 1992. The Electoral Commission has its roles to perform, and the political parties have their own; you should trust that the EC will perform its responsibilities so that no one cheats in the election, but that's what happened in the 2020 elections," Mr. Mahama asserted.
