2020 Election Petition: Mahama was only seeking attention – Yaw Danso

Former President John Dramani Mahama has been described as an attention seeker and self centered personality who only seeks his personal wellbeing against the interest of the ordinary citizens and Ghana as a country.

Ghanaians have thus been urged to urgently go down on their knees and ask God for  forgiveness for making John Dramani Mahama the President of a God fearing country like Ghana.

In an interview with Ghananewsonline.com.gh on the outcome of the 2020 elections petition in which John Mahama challenged the elegibility of Nana Akufo-Addo carrying himself as President of the Ghana, the caretaker District Chief Executive (DCE) for Bosome Freho in the Ashanti Region, Yaw Danso, labeled the petitioner as a commedian who always joke with serious issues affecting the country.

The former President was in the Apex court of Ghana to seek relief order for the electoral commission to organise a runoff between himself and Nana Akufo-Addo as he claimed non of the presidential candidates in the just ended general elections crosed the 50%+1 vote thresshood outlined in the Constitution of the Republic to be declared a winner. He was claiming to have observed some anormalities during the coalition at the strong room of the electoral commission.

The Court however dismissed the petition on grounds that the “petition hold no merit’ as the petitioner was not able to provide evidence to prove his claims in the petition laid before the court.

Yaw Danso described the petitioner as a commedian, an attention seeker who was aiming to distract the attention of the citizens as well as throw dust into the eyes of Ghanaians and waste their precious time which could have been used to advocate for the development of the country.

According to the DCE, the peace of the country is paramount and dear to the heart of every Ghanaian and should not be subtitude with any other thing. He advised Ghanaians especially politicians to always respect the rule of law as well as remain vigilant in what ever they do.

He condemned NDC activists who were involved in series of demonstrations, including the alleged burning of markets, car tyres among others that they were incited by the NDC flagbearer.

“All these dangerous activities were just for somebody’s personal interest which should not be encouraged in our society anymore,” he stated.
