Godfred Yeboah Dame, Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, has replied to the opposition National Democratic Congress’s repeated assertions that the 2020 elections were not legitimate.
According to Godfred Dame, the opposition party’s stance is a “effort to unduly fool their people into thinking Mahama did any better” during the elections.
This was said by Godfred Dame during his speech at the Commonwealth Election Professionals Initiative Africa Region Training Programme on Monday.
The National Democratic Congress maintains that last year’s presidential election was rigged in favor of President Akufo-New Addo’s Patriotic Party.
The NDC, which ran John Mahama as their presidential candidate, argues that the election was marred by irregularities.
They have asked the Inspector General of Police to look into the suspected production of one million excess ballot papers by Innolink Printing Press for the 2020 general election.
The Party claimed that the documents were printed unlawfully in a petition to IGP Dr George Akufo Dampare, which was signed by General Secretary Asiedu Nketia. As a result, officials from the Electoral Commission and Innolink who are proven to be responsible must face criminal charges.
Mr. Dame, on the other hand, questioned why the NDC would petition the IGP after failing to prove its case in the Supreme Court.
