Background

The NDC maintains the 2020 elections were rigged in favour of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo wondering why the Electoral Commission (EC) consistently changed figures.

Lawyer Godwin Edudzi Tamakloe Special Aide to former President John Dramani Mahama has said the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) Madam Jean Mensa could have rigged the 2020 elections in favour of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo but not in the manner it was done.

Reacting to the declaration of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer as the President-elect, he told Accra-based Okay Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com that she could have done it a bit professionally.

“You can decide to help Nana Akufo-Addo, you can decide to rig an election for him but do it in a professional way”, he said.

He is of the view that the EC has a sinister agenda against the NDC for which reason it engaged in various acts just to ensure it denied victory considering the widespread irregularities.
