NPP response to NDC’s petition to the Supreme Court (Full State)

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has taken note of the submission of an election petition by John Dramani Mahama, which disputes the declaration of HE Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the validly elected and duly declared President of the Republic of Ghana.

Indeed, the responsible, appropriate and democratic way of settling electoral disputes is through the use of the courts. Better yet, the process of filing a petition in court should put to bed the many cases of intimidation, threats and violent acts and arson and destruction of property, which was the preferred path for the NDC.

The NPP is assured that the election on 7 December 2020 was won fairly. The evidence presented by the NDC indeed only reassured the people of Ghana that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo won the election. The fact of transparency of the General Elections was also soundly confirmed by the multitude of local and international observers who participated in the election process.


It is very curious that John Dramani Mahama, the NDC flag bearer and submitter, who bases his petition on alleged errors made by the Electoral Commission, himself submitted a petition with errors, including the request for a run-off between himself and the election commission. It is also unfortunate that the NDC under the leadership of John Dramani Mahama, even after submitting the petition to the court, continues to incite supporters to flock to the streets to cause chaos and anarchy.

The NPP wants to assure its supporters and the people of Ghana that the legal team of the president has the readiness to expose the emptiness of John Mahama’s petition and the NDC’s denial of the election truth that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo has indeed won this election without any doubt.

Our response will show that the NDC has not provided any substantial evidence of value in court to support its blatantly false allegations regarding the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. They lied to their supporters that they had won and falsely referred to John Dramani Mahama as the president. Now they have returned and futilely decided to take a run that they themselves know will not happen.

They have attempted to use lies, threats, violence and intimidation and continue to undermine the manifest will of the people, as freely expressed on December 7, 2020. We are confident that the facts and figures presented in court, even by the NDC, will in a transparent and indisputable way very easily reaffirm the expressed will of the voting public that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo the presidential election in 2020 “one touch” and convincingly so won.

It should be emphasized, however, that it is rather worrying that John Dramani Mahama, through his social media handles, continues to incite violence, even though he invokes the right to use the court process to resolve his grievance. He posted on his Facebook page and Twitter as follows;
“While in court, the NDC will continue all legal action, including protests, to demand the maintenance of the rule of law and the protection of the lives and property of the good people in Ghana.”

It is rather unfortunate and indecent of a former President of the Republic. It is obvious that the Indian himself has very little confidence in the petition he is offering and is still resorting to intimidation to stop the express will of the people of Ghana. In his latest press conference, he explained that he was only going to court “to dispel doubts.” Does he need the Supreme Court to dispel his doubts about the loss of the election?

The various attempts to use lies, threats, violence and intimidation to dominate the will of the people are disappointingly undemocratic of the NDC and its leader, John Dramani Mahama.
By calling on his supporters to continue on the streets, John Dramani Mahama not only signed the peace treaty signed on 4 December 2020, where he undertook, among other things, in the presence of witnesses and on national television, “to accept the outcome of the election and concede to the winner accordingly and, where necessary, use judicial resolution of election disputes. ”

We call on John Dramani Mahama to immediately withdraw his offensive remarks to his supporters. It is highly irresponsible of John Dramani Mahama to start the judicial process, yet urges his supporters to continue the violent protests that have threatened the security and peace of Ghanaians and which have plagued Ghanaians in recent weeks in unnecessary fear and panic. let live. The good people of Ghana hold John Dramani Mahama responsible for his sacred undertaking to abide by the Peace Treaty, just as HE Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo did in 2012 and 2016.

Indeed, when NPP submitted a petition in 2012, we especially warned our supporters not to enter the streets and they did not take to the streets. This was in fact acknowledged by John Dramani Mahama, Foreign Minister Hannah Tetteh, who on 2 May 2013 told investors in Dubai:
“Our elections have been contested, but they are being contested in court, they are not being challenged in the streets, and whatever the outcome of the court’s ruling, we as all political parties will go along with it.”

The NPP is very confident that due process will prevail, and the Supreme Court will handle the petition according to the rule of law.
May God bless our homeland Ghana and make her great and strong!
