We Did Not Trick NDC In 2020, Their Supporters Shot At Us – Peace Council Clarifies



National Peace Council Denies Allegations of Misleading NDC in 2020 Election

The National Peace Council (NPC) has refuted claims made by the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) regarding their involvement in the 2020 presidential election. Mr. Asiedu Nketia, the NDC Chairman, alleged that the NPC misled the party into withdrawing its agents from the Electoral Commission’s (EC) ‘strong room’ during the collation of election results.

The NPC clarified that the account provided by the NDC Chairman is inaccurate. They explained that a meeting between the Council and the NDC was inconclusive due to an attack by a mob at the party’s headquarters, resulting in vehicle damage and intimidation through gunfire.

Responding to allegations by Mr. Asiedu Nketia, the NPC revealed that a meeting scheduled with the NDC leadership at former President Mahama’s office on December 9, 2020, was disrupted by another mob invasion. Despite efforts by the NDC leadership to intervene, the disruption persisted, causing further chaos and intimidation.

Furthermore, the Council denied consenting to summon the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the NDC, along with foreign observers, to a meeting at the Movenpick Hotel to address the NDC’s grievances regarding the collation of results. They emphasized that their efforts to engage the NDC in resolving grievances were met with challenges, including difficulties in reaching the General Secretary for a possible meeting.

During the meeting with the NDC leadership, the NPC conveyed concerns and disagreements expressed by the party regarding the election results received at the EC strong room. However, they clarified that no decision or suggestion was made to organize any meeting between political parties and international delegations to verify election documents, contrary to claims made by the NDC Chairman.

Rev. Dr. Ernest Adu Gyamfi, Chairman of NPC, reaffirmed the Council’s commitment to its mandate of facilitating conflict resolution in the country. He urged all citizens and stakeholders to support their efforts in developing mechanisms to prevent, manage, and resolve conflicts effectively.

The NPC’s response aims to address misinformation and uphold the integrity of their actions during the 2020 presidential election, emphasizing transparency and commitment to fostering peace in Ghana.
