The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has welcomed and accepted the call by the Electoral Commission of Ghana for transparent investigations into allegations of electoral fraud made by former President John Dramani Mahama relative to the conduct of the 2020 general elections.

According to the party leadership, this is what they have been yearning for, and are happy that after trying to avoid accountability by refusing to answer interrogatories and testify in the witness box, the Jean Mensah-led Electoral Commission (EC) has at long last, accepted their challenge.

“We wish to state unequivocally that all the issues raised by our flag-bearer are supported by incontrovertible evidence and facts. We are ever-ready to avail ourselves to prove same before any credible forum.”

The National Headquarters of the party noted that, the deliberate printing of excess ballot papers by the Jean Mensah/Bossman Asare-led EC, some of which were authenticated with the official validation stamp of the EC and thumb-printed for Candidate Akufo-Addo for purposes of ballot stuffing; and the use of some of the State Security Agencies to forcefully manipulate the election outcome in favor of the ruling NPP which led to the killing of eight (8) innocent Ghanaians, have cast an indelible slur on our enviable democratic credentials and totally eroded the credibility and integrity of our once revered Electoral Commission.
