NDC Protest: It is their constitutional right to demonstrate – Martin Kpebu

Legal Practitioner, Martin Kpebu has said that it is the constitutional right of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to demonstrate.

Speaking in an interview Daily News Ghana monitored, Martin Kpebu downplays calls for the NDC to challenge the results of the general election in court.

“I have heard people say they should stop demonstrations and go to court. That is a naive statement. You cannot determine for them how they want to prosecute their case. It is their constitutional right to demonstrate,” he said.

Mr. Kpebu indicates on ‘The Big Issue’ program that the NDC’s protests could be an attempt to elicit public sympathy following an unfavorable election.

The NDC has alleged electoral fraud which they claim influenced the outcome of the 2020 presidential polls.
