We had cause to reject 2016 election results but didn’t – Asiedu Nketia


The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, says there were sensible justification for his gathering to dismiss the aftereffects of the 2016 decision.

Yet, he says the NDC chose not to for the sake of protecting Ghana’s majority rule government.

John Dramani Mahama yielded the decision to Nana Akufo-Addo after he surveyed 44.4% to Nana Addo’s 53.83% in what was the main race rout by an officeholder president.

Talking on Citi TV’s Face to Face, the NDC General Secretary stated: “we had each reason not to acknowledge this outcome and to request certain things yet we chose to stay silent.”

He reminded that EC had said its frameworks for transmitting the outcomes electronically had been altered prompting a deferral in the revelation.

In any case, the commission is yet to give any lucidity on the occurrence more than two years from the decision.

“In the event that it were NPP, I’m certain after that announcement, regardless of whether Jesus Christ had plunged, they wouldn’t have acknowledged annihilation.”

Regardless of the NDC’s hesitations, Mr. Asiedu Nketia said the NDC was of the view that “this is Ghana and Ghana is greater than everyone and the law based accreditations we have earned make we all glad so given us a chance to surrender and move along.”

Mr. Asiedu Nketia likewise noticed that the NDC would have been unfit to challenge the decision in any case since it has not been gazetted.

“We felt that there will be an audit of the races. 2016 emerges as the main general race which has not been looked into by the Electoral Commission and IPAC. As we stay here now, we couldn’t practice any privilege to go to court or wherever in light of the fact that the presidential outcomes, the if I’m not mistaken, has still not been gazetted.”
