The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says he will do everything to ensure that the country has a free and fair election on December 7.


John Mahama said despite assurances by the Electoral Commission to ensure a free, fair and credible election, the party will also continue to remain vigilant until the electoral process is over and the results are declared.

“I want to assure all the teeming supporters of the NDC, sympathisers, well-wishers and the millions waiting to vote for John Mahama, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang and the NDC that we are winning this election.

“We are determined, and the EC and indeed no institution can and should try to subvert the will of the people,” he said.
He made the comments during his address at the virtual launch of the NDC’s “door-to-door” campaign at Sefwi Wiawso.

The former President raised concern over a number of issues that occurred during the compilation of the new register as well as the anomalies in the provisional register.

According to Mr Mahama, the party is not happy about some occurrences ahead of the elections and said the EC’s attention has been drawn to them.

He stated that the party is hopeful the EC will address these concerns, however, the NDC will not relent in its efforts to ensure that the right thing- with regards to the electoral process- is done.

“We have had concern to draw the Commission’s attention to many instances of infractions and actions that have not satisfied us.

“While we are expecting that the Commission will live above reproach, I want to assure you all that the NDC is very well prepared and we will police the ballot from all polling stations, through the constituencies to the regional to the National Collation Centres.

“This is our battle for Ghana’s future. Embrace it like your life depends on it because Ghana deserves to be a place where everyone has a chance to thrive and prosper,” he said.
