The National Democratic Congress says they will not recognise Nana Akufo-Addo as President of the country until all issues surrounding the December 7, 2020 elections are resolved.
“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 Friday.
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 per cent 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 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.
