The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has asked the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Presidential Candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo to concede defeat.
The NDC at a press conference projected its own version of results that put the party ahead of the NPP in the presidential race.
Addressing the press, the NDC’s Deputy General Secretary, Peter Otukonor, mentioned some constituencies that had flipped to the opposition NDC.
“Let me use this opportunity to as a matter of urgency and importance call on the outgoing president, President William Akufo-Addo, to concede defeat in the interest of the sanctity of our democracy,” he said at a press conference at the headquarters of the NDC.”
NDC’s claim of parliamentary majority false
Prior to his address, the Minister of Information, Oppong Nkrumah reacted to the NDC’s claim that it had won a parliamentary majority in Monday’s election.
At a press briefing in Accra on Tuesday night, [December 8, 2020] the Minister of Information, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the claim was “false”.
He also advised NDC supporters against jubilating as it is likely to create confusion if it turns out that the results do not favour the party.
