Mahama rejects ‘fictionalised’ results, says he won presidential race

Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC)

The Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has rejected the results of the 2020 Presidential election announced on Wednesday.

“There is no doubt that Ghanaians from every region of this great nation voted for change—and we did so in both the Presidential and the Parliamentary elections,” he said.

“Despite all of the ruling party’s inducements, use of monetary enticements, and other such schemes on a scale never before seen in this country, the good people of this country understood what was at stake, and it was clear, as the result of the votes that were legally cast that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) won the Presidential and Parliamentary elections,” Mr Mahama continued.

The Electoral Commission boss, Jean Mensa pronounced the incumbent President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the winner of the presidential poll.

According to the EC Chairperson, Mr Akufo-Addo had 6,730,587 representing 51.302 of the total valid votes cast as against 6,213,182 representing 47.359 polled by the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

But the Ex-President has rejected the results as announced by the Electoral Commission at a media briefing Thursday, saying it is “fictionalised.”

“Let me assure you, my dear voter, that your vote will count,” he told Ghanaians.
