We’ll protest until Mahama is declared President – NDC’s Basintale

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has indicated it’s members will relentlessly protest until it’s 2020 flagbearer John Mahama is declared winner of last year’s elections.

The NDC led by it’s National Vice Chairman, Chief Sofo Azoka embarked on a demonstration in the Savannah Regional capital, Damongo, to demand the Electoral Commission (EC) to re-collate the election results from the region and other parts of the country where figures were mistakenly calculated in favour of President Akufo-Addo.

Amidst burning of car tyres and chanting songs, the NDC sympathizers were heard singing “no Mahama, no one”.

Communication Officer for the NDC in the region, Malik Basintale, told press men the party have numerous evidences that the EC deliberately padded votes in favour of Nana Akufo-Addo who was the incumbent at the time of the national polls.

Mr Akufo-Addo was sworn in for his second term yesterday, January 7, 2020 as the NDC contest the results of the presidential elections in the Supreme Court.

However, Basintale, who said the investiture of Akufo-Addo does not discourage the NDC, stated “we will continue to demonstrate until our leader John Mahama is declared the winner of the elections.”

Basintale said “we are not tired” and went on to assure supporters of the NDC that they (the party leadership) will not accept the subversion of the will of the people, claiming the NDC leader won the polls and that, the NDC will continue to protest.
