Former President John Dramani Mahama has dismissed assertions by the Electoral Commission’s Chairperson, Jean Mensa, that the 2020 general election will be the most credible in the country’s history.
In response to Jean Mensah’s remarks before the ECOWAS Parliament, the former President stated that her failure to go before the Supreme Court to defend the 2020 election results is a strong evidence that the election was not credible.
As part of his Thank Tour You of the Western Region, President Mahama stated this to Nana Nteboah Prah, the Divisional Chief of Prestea Himan.“The Supreme Court did not dismiss our election petition in a reasonable manner.
“However, when it was our turn, we were not permitted to ask our questions.” Asiedu Nketiah was called to testify in 2012. He was called to testify again in 2020. Afari Gyan was called to mount the witness box in 2012. When Jean Mensa was called to mount the witness box in 2020, she declined. I overheard her declare the other day that this election is the greatest Ghana has ever had. “She should have climbed the witness box if she is sure that this is the finest election Ghana has ever had,” he added.
Nana Nteboah Prah announced his support for the LGBTQ+ Bill when greeting Mr. Mahama to his palace.
He also urged the Member of Parliament for Prestea-Huni-Valley to openly display his vote in support of the Bill when it comes to voting on it in Parliament.
