After weeks of street protests which turned violent in some areas, the 2020 Presidential candidate for the National Democratic Congress who himself has indicated that the results of the elections are flawed has urged his supporters to protest peacefully.

In a tweet on his officially verified Twitter handle, John Dramani Mahama said;

“I commend the Ghana Pentecostal & Charismatic Council (GPCC) for the recognition of protests as an instrument of democratic expression.

Elections can be emotive and the EC’s incompetent handling of the Dec 7 poll leaves a sour taste in the mouths of all patriotic citizens.

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.”
