US ambassador urges Mahama to go to court

The United States Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie S. Sullivan has urged National Democratic Congress candidate, John Dramani Mahama to address his concerns with the just-ended 2020 election in court.

She said this in a meeting with John Mahama and his running mate, Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang on Thursday, December 17.

This comes after the former President John Mahama and his party expressed their unwillingness to accept the results of the 2020 elections as declared by the Electoral Commission, December 9.

She further urged all other political parties “to pursue legal channels for any electoral disputes and to preserve the peace in Ghana”.

Ambassador Stephanie Sullivan met with former President @JDMahama and discussed the recent elections. We continue to urge political parties to pursue legal channels for any electoral disputes and to preserve the peace in Ghana.

Supporters of the NDC have since the rejection of the 2020 election results by their party leaders been protesting across the country demanding that the EC declares Mahama as president-elect.

On Thursday, 26 protestors were arrested in front of the EC headquarters in Accra for unlawful gathering.

They burnt car tyres and pelted stones at the EC office until they were dispersed up by the police.
