The Northern Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress ( NDC), Ibrahim Mobila, has instructed the chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa, to within 2 days, declare former president John Dramani Mahama the president elect.
This declaration was made at one of the many demonstrations staged across the country. He said, “I am here to tell all the people in the Northern Region that we won the elections, we are begging the EC boss, she shouldn’t bring confusion into the country so we are telling her to come out immediately and change the results by Friday otherwise we will decide for our incoming President John Mahama,”.
The National Vice Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Sofo Azorka, also said the party will on January 7, 2021, swear in John Dramani Mahama as president.
“We are swearing John Mahama next month 7th January, at where they swear people in at Accra.”
Supporters of the National Democratic Congress have hit the streets of Tamale in the Northern Region to protest the declaration of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as president-elect in the just-ended polls.
Meanwhile, this is not the first demonstration held by members of the opposition since results of the December 7 elections were announced by the electoral body.
