Former President of Ghana and leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama says his party cannot accept a fictional election result.

“There is no doubt that every Ghanaian in this country voted for change. We did so both In the presidential and parliamentary elections” he said at a press conference on December 10, 2020.
To him, he is a firm believer in the system where the people elect their representatives and will continue to fight till the choice of the people is declared.
“I am a staunch believer in the experiment of democracy, a system of governance that allows the ultimate decision making power to rest in the hands of you the good people of Ghana. We the people who with an eye towards the future we will like for our dear country elect representatives to forward and realise that vision. Government serves at the choice and direction of the people of this great nation.”
