I Will Never Concede Defeat Until An Independent Audit Is Conducted – Mahama Reiterates

Published

on


The flagbearer of the NDC for the 2020 elections, John Dramani Mahama has reiterated his position in rejecting the results of the 2020 Presidential elections.

According to him, in the interest of Ghana’s democracy, he will not accept the results of the elections until an independent audit is conducted.

“In the interest of the more than six million people who voted for me, I must uphold our democracy and hold our Electoral Commission to higher standards and hold this government to higher standards in terms of democracy; the way they’ve conducted this election; the government [President Akufo-Addo] and the Electoral Commission is a dent to our democratic credentials. ” Mahama told VOA’s Peter Clottey in an interview.

Mr Mahama insisted that the Electoral Commission’s performance in the just-ended elections have been abysmal and nothing less than an independent audit will cause him to concede defeat.

“In my principles as a democrat, I can’t be seen to be sweeping it under the carpet and just letting it go. I think that we must bring closure to this by seeing exactly where the issues are. If an independent audit is done by the EC; they bring somebody crunch the numbers, do an independent audit; if I lost why not, I’ll be the first to concede and walk away.

“But as long as that is not done, and I know that there is a deliberate attempt to subvert the will of the people in favour of the incumbent, it will be wrong for me in terms of our democratic practise to just leave it because we’ll not learn the lessons of this election. I think that we must learn the lessons of this election so that we don’t repeat it in the future one,” Mahama noted.

Blame Yourself For Not Doing Your Work Properly In The Strong Room – Supreme Court Chastizes Kpessah Whyte And Mettle-Nunoo

Published

on


The justices of the supreme court have told witnesses of Mr John Dramani Mahama in the election petition, Mr Rojo Mettle Nunoo and Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte to blame themselves for abandoning their duties in the strong room during the final collation of the election results if their claims are to be believed.

During proceedings, the two witnesses told the court that they were sent by the Chair of the Electoral Commission (EC) to Mr Mahama at the time of the collation of the final results in the strong room. In their absence, the results were then announced.

Delivering the judgment on Thursday, March 4 the court said “…Notwithstanding all these allegations of misunderstandings with the chair of the 1st respondent in the strong room and the fact that they were absent during the declaration, they did not give any indication as to how these happenings in their absence affected the final results announced by the 1st Respondent.

“The testimonies would have carried some little weight if the purpose of the petition was to change entries made on the collation forms or summary sheets but that is not the case.

“Their testimonies were therefore of no relevance to the said issues set out for determination and so we find them unworthy for consideration whatsoever.

“In fact, regarding the testimonies of PW2 and PW3 , if their evidence is to be believed then they had to blame themselves for abandoning their post at the national collation centre at the time the verification and certification of the results were ongoing and PW3 had then verified and certified the regional collation results out of the 16.”

The Petitioner in the 2020 election petition, John Dramani Mahama has made an appearance at the premises of the Supreme Court this morning.

Mr Mahama is challenging the declaration of President Akufo-Addo as having won the 2020 election.

According to Mr Mahama, no candidate obtained more than 50%.

The Apex Court will put the matter to rest today by delivering its judgement.
