“Until the injustice is corrected, the NDC will be on the streets” – Asiedu Nketia


There have been widespread protests by NDC supporters in different parts of the country, burning tyres and mounting roadblocks and calling for an audit of the election that declared President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo winner.

The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia in his defence, says the party has no plans of stopping the nationwide street protests against the outcome of the 2020 Presidential polls any time soon.

Although they have been urged by political stakeholders to resort to the law court if they feel the system was flawed for the case to be settled. But Mr Asiedu Nketia says the party will use street protest to rectify such fraudulent results.

“The street protest is aimed at getting public officers to do their lawful duties in a right and just manner and that is a constitutionally guaranteed right of aggrieved people. And the constitutionally guaranteed right of people to go to court is also available. You look at the options and you choose the method that will give you your results and for now, we think that the street protest will give us the results. We’ll be on the streets till the right things are done until the injustice is corrected,” Mr Asiedu Nketia said in an interview.

Last week’s protest at the Electoral Commission Headquarters in Accra saw some 26 supporters arrested and have been granted GHC10,000 bail each by a court.

The NDC has already indicated that it will not rush to court to seek redress.

It has said its next line of action will be determined after auditing figures from all polling stations and gathering all relevant evidence relating to the elections.
