The movement has also asked the international government agencies to withhold all intended supports to Ghana and has also asked them to revoke all agreements signed with Ghana until the election dispute has been resolved.
The group contends that the Electoral Commission’s declaration of results in the just-ended elections constitutes a subversion of the will of the people, claiming that the results announced does not represent the true will of the masses, whom the group believes, voted for their candidate, Mr. John Mahama.
The group also reported the Akufo-Addo government for the use of brute force in brutalizing ordinary citizens during the elections as part of the alleged plans to rig the polls leading to the death of 7 innocent unarmed civilians.
According to the group, the systematic use of the police and the judiciary by the Akufo-Addo government as objects of oppression is an abuse of fundamental human rights and freedoms.
The group alleged that the Electoral Commission used all means possible to deprive the National Democratic Congress of their deserved victory. It may be recalled that the Electoral Commission declared the results of the 2020 Presidential Election on 9th December and subsequently changed the results on the 10th and 15th of the same month. This action by the EC has raised so many questions amongst the opposition side who seem not to fathom the intentions of the EC and has called for a re-collation of some of the constituencies they believe they won but the NPP’s candidate was declared winner instead.
