The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has directed jabs at Ghana’s Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa.
He described the commission’s chair, Jean Mensa as the worst the country has seen following the aftermath of the 2020 general election declarations.
Speaking in Techiman South Constituency in the Bono East Region on Wednesday, December 16, 2020, when he paid a visit to the families of victims of the electoral clashes, he blamed her for all that happened.
The purpose of his visit, was to call on the families of the victims of some clashes that went on in the area during the just ended general elections.
He blamed all that happened on her incompetence to do what exactly is required of her.
“But I must say, things shouldn’t have happened this way. This is not our first election. But unfortunately, we find ourselves here due to the incompetence of this Electoral Commission,” he said.
Mahama added that if the country was a more advanced one, the EC Chairperson would have been forced to resign in shame.
He added that the EC has soiled the country’s reputation that has been tagged as the beacon of democracy for a long time.
The chaos started after the NDC believed they won the Techiman South Constituency but the Returning Officer had declared the results in favour of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The unrest in Techiman South constituency, led to the death of two people, Abdallah Ayaric and Tajudeen Alhassan.
Four people also sustained various degrees of injuries after the military allegedly fired warning shots at the Constituency Collation Centre.
