Be peaceful – Mahama urges NDC demonstrators


Former President John Mahama has urged protestors of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to demonstrate peacefully, as they express their reservations about results declared by the Electoral Commission in the 7 December 2020 polls. 

In a statement in which the presidential candidate of the NDC commended the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) “for the recognition of protests as an instrument of democratic expression”, Mr. Mahama said: “Elections can be emotive”, adding that “the EC’s incompetent handling of the Dec 7 poll leaves a sour taste in the mouths of all patriotic citizens”.

He said, “it is important to hold the EC accountable to ensure that it purifies itself and rises again to be the leading electoral body on our continent, Africa”.

“I still urge all who feel outraged by the EC’s conduct to manifest their displeasure in a manner that is peaceful”, he said.
