Private Legal Practitioner and member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has called on the former president ,John Dramani Mahama to concede defeat if he has no evidence to support his claims of rigging.
According to Gabyy Otchere-Darko , who is also the cousin of the sitting president, John Mahama should stop deceiving his supporters before gross harm is done to any of them. He also iterated that the only bone of contention between the two parties is the parliamentary election and that both parties have a case.
“Dear John, If you know you don’t have the evidence to go to court please concede now. Stop deceiving your supporters before any gross harm is done. You know it! The real contestation is on parliamentaries. Both NPP and NDC believe they have cause to challenge a few declared seats” he tweeted.
The leader of the main opposition party, John Mahama has refused to concede defeat and recognize the sitting president as the president elect of the republic after the Dec 7th election.
According to his party, the EC and the government circumvented ways to rig the election in favor of the NPP. This refusal to concede defeat has spurred party faithfuls on to protest in every part of the country against the Electoral Commission.
