NDC shall not recognize Akufo-Addo as the President of Ghana – Asiedu Nketia

“Let me state without any equivocation that the NDC shall not recognize Mr. Akufo-Addo as the President of Ghana until all issues surrounding his flawed elections are satisfactorily resolved,” General Secretary of the party Johnson Asiedu Nketia said at a press conference today Friday, January 8, 2021.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was on Thursday sworn-in as the President of the Republic of Ghana to begin his second term in office.

The swearing-in ceremony took place at the forecourt of the Parliament House.

Akufo-Addo won the December elections with over 51 percent of total valid votes cast to secure a second term in office.

Before the swearing-in of President Akufo-Addo, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia was sworn-in as the Vice President of Ghana.

The process leading to the swearing-in ceremony was nearly marred after soldiers stormed Ghana’s parliament over a protracted stalemate between MPs-elect over the election of a new Speaker of the House.

The election went into a near-violent hold-up after the leadership of the NDC in the House accused their colleagues from the NPP of violating the secret ballot rule of the election by showing their ballot to themselves.
