The MP for Assin Central constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has stated emphatically that no matter the amount of protest or court action taken, the outcome of the 2020 elections as read by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission cannot be reversed.

After Madam Jean Mensa, the EC Chairperson declared the results last Wednesday, there have been agitations by the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its supporters who claim the elections were rigged.

The NDC has challenged results of various constituencies and further refused to accept the presidential results, maintaining that the process was flawed.

The flagbearer and presidential candidate of the party, John Dramani Mahama, said during a press conference that he refuses to concede defeat to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who was declared the winner by Jean Mensa on December 9.

“And if we are to progress as a nation, if we are to live up to the inheritance of our history, one for which people have paid the ultimate price. I stand before you tonight unwilling to accept the fictionalized results of a flawed election,” Mahama stated.

Meanwhile, as Ghanaians brace themselves for an election petition similar to that of 2012, Kennedy Agyapong has declared that nothing can reverse Jean Mensa’s announcement.

“Nobody in this country is scared of the NDC and no man born of a woman can overturn the decision declared by the EC. We are no kids in this country and we won’t sit down and allow people to destroy this country. In 2012, when we had issues we went to court.”

Mr. Agyapong went on to add that officials of the NDC who were caught distributing money to voters at the polling station in his constituency were beaten.

“I saw them distributing money and we beat them good and calm was restored. They were sharing monies at the polling station and we beat them well,” he said.
