Akuffo Addo Speaks At Long Last: He Says We Know We Won 2012 Elections… Results Won’t Be Accepted

blank

Presidential Candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has categorically stated that he will not accept the verdict of the Electoral Commission in the 2012 general elections.

In a charged atmosphere at the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra on Tuesday, Nana Addo told party faithfuls that the decision not to accept the EC’s declaration was taken by the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) at an emergency meeting held earlier today.

According to him, no matter the time period, the NPP will contest the results of the just ended presidential elections which saw his closest contender John Dramani Mahama being declared the president-elect. Thus, the NPP has directed its lawyers to head to the Supreme Court to contest the outcome of the elections.

“…we know we won this election…we are not going to retreat from the decision that we have taken,” he said.

The Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, on Sunday, declared President John Dramani Mahama as winner of the presidential elections, announcing that the president-elect polled over 5 million votes representing 50.70 percent of the total valid votes cast as against Nana Akufo-Addo’s 47.74 percent.

But the NPP is contesting some of the figures. It insist there is evidence to show that Ghanaians voted overwhelmingly for them and that the results had been manipulated to favour the incumbent leader.

The main opposition party claim over 54,000 votes were added to that of the ruling party and have made copies of the alleged fraud and distributed it to party supporters.

Interlacing his speech with some phrases in Twi, Ga, English and French, Nana Akufo-Addo told his teeming supporters that the party will ensure that justice is served in the matter to safeguard the sanctity of Ghana’s democracy. He however called on the supporters to eschew any violent tendencies as the legal means are used to ensure that the results are overturned.

“We don’t want any trouble we don’t want anything that will disturb the peace of this country… Ghanaians are watching and I am appealing to you, if indeed we are going gain their support and respect, we have to comport ourselves,” he advised.

    • @nanya martinson, every political party that wins power will chop money but some are heavier than others…if u know Nana Akuffo Addo like i do personally, am sure u wouldnt have written this comment. If Mahama and his team are not desperate to chop money then why dont they resign from politics and maybe retire???

Plzzzzzzzz lets face the truthful facts, some people just speak from their chest because they dont even think….Do u know that its in Ghana’s constitution that if a party brings up allegations after elections, the EC should investigate 72 hours before declaring a winner??? do u also know that when complete evidence is taken to court and the judge finds it worthy, the voting can be done again??? so why did armed men go to NPP party office??? searching for their wives panties??? Just go and buy Ghana’s constitution and read before commenting on political issues, so that u dont sound like u are sounding now….

        • @Eaglebabe, Y ou still going on about lack of creativity. lol This girl thinks insulting is some skill one has to excel in.What kind of upbringing did you have from your parents to have this stupid mentality.I am sure you and your parents always exchanged insults at home when you were young leading to this mindset.

          Reply
          • @Truth, if u had an upbringing like mine, u wouldnt have been here writing all these stupid and childish insults.
            (2)You wouldnt have had issues with an unknown commenter on a blog sharing his/her opinions.
            (3)You wouldnt have been this wacky to attack me and order me to shut up.
            (4) you would have been wise enough to understand that addressing issues and disagreeing with someone can be done without insults.
            Let me tell u, i dont intend to insult u because u are an insult to urself, this short interaction btwn us have taught me to be patient with a PERSON like u because u cant think properly before writing anything here. Your lack of good mannerism is what has brought all these and the fact that am spending quality time to reply ur useless comments…clearly everybody can tell the kind of person u are. When i commented i never mentioned ur name but u commented ordering me to shut up…And u are talking abt upbringing??? Am restraining myself so hard from insulting you…and that is because i dont want to get to ur demeaning level of upbringing and behavior

          • @Truth, so far this is the most reasonable comment u have ever written…hmmmm things like this dont hurt my feelings…lol, after all we dont know each other so why would i allow your flimsy comments hurt my feelings????? The only people who can hurt my feelings dear…and from our conversation u are not on my “loved ones list”…..but u are interesting though
