Some Minority Members of Parliament have been confronted by the police at the Electoral Commission’s (EC) Headquarters in Accra when they went to present a petition.

About 50 MPs of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who were present wore black and red attire were initially stopped by police personnel at the Ridge roundabout, however, they managed to cross the barricade.

When they got to the entrance of the EC office, they were also stopped by the police who even pushed some of the MPs to the ground.

According to the MPs, the situation is rather unfortunate because they were only present at the EC office to present a petition to the EC adding that it was not a demonstration but a peaceful walk to the EC office.

Although the content of the petition is not yet known, the NDC has consistently showed their disagreement with the December 7, election results which declared Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as president.

Due to this, several protests and demonstrations have been conducted across the country by the NDC as they believe John Dramani Mahama is the legitimate President of Ghana.

Also, the First Vice Chairman of the NDC, Chief Sofo Awudu Azorka during a protest in Tamale said the NDC will also swear in John Dramani Mahama as their President on January 7 and no human being can change that.

Meanwhile, the Savannah Region is currently protesting against the EC and according to them, there will be no peace in the country until John Dramani Mahama is declared the president-elect of the country.
