The National Democratic Congress says claims by the opposition New Patriotic Party that over 1.3 million votes were stolen for John Mahama in the recent Presidential elections are laughable and misleading.
The NPP legal team officially filed a petition at the Supreme Court on Friday to challenge the presidential election results which declared John Dramani Mahama as the winner.
According to the NPP, it has uncovered that over 1.3 million votes were illegally counted and stolen for the NDC’s John Mahama.
In the petition filed at the Supreme Court on Friday, the NPP prayed that the Supreme Court declares:
(1) That John Dramani Mahama, the 2nd Respondent herein was not validly elected president of the Republic of Ghana.
(2) That Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the 1st Petitioner herein, rather was validly elected President of the Republic of Ghana.
(3) Consequential orders as to this court may seem meet.
But a Press Conference addressed by the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the NPP are bad losers and are still recuperating from the painful defeat suffered in the elections.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia, popularly known as General Mosquito said the governing party is very confident that the Supreme Court would rule against them as the elections had been the country’s most transparent ever.
“We don’t have any shred of doubt in our minds that President Mahama has been the choice,” Mr Asiedu Nketia said.
He stated that Ghanaians must patiently await the outcome of the Supreme Court ruling which would be abided by all.
