“Accept defeat or go to court” – Ayariga, 5 other presidential candidates tell Mahama


Five political parties and an independent presidential candidate in the 2020 Presidential elections have added their voices to calls imploring the Flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, and the party’s supporters to use judicial processes to address all their grievances if they do not agree with the results as declared by the Electoral Commission.

In attendance were David Apasera of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Ivor Greenstreet of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Henry Herbert Lartey of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), Kofi Akpaloo of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) and Independent Candidate, Kwame Asiedu Walker.

They also explained that the Supreme Court was established to handle such cases and therefore it is ideal for the NDC to make that decision if they feel cheated.

A look into points raised by some of the candidates expressed to the John Mahama led NDC;

Ivor Greenstreet

““Each election will have just one winner, and that is what has happened now. It is for this reason that we are appealing to our brothers in the NDC to have a sober reflection on anything likely to create violence in the country because we have future elections to contest”.

Dr Lartey

“I urge all Ghanaians irrespective of your party affiliations to support the policies raised by the NPP so that Ghana will become the beacon of hope in Africa”.

Jacob Osei Yeboah

“It is not easy to lose an election, and that explains why there are pockets of demonstrations, but the leadership should use all the democratic processes to seek redress.

The court should be the right way to seek redress if they feel otherwise,”.
