Former President and leader of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama is still not convinced that the 2020 general election was credible as claimed by Mrs. Jean Mensa of Electoral Commission(EC).

According to the NDC flag bearer, Mrs. Jean Mensa’s inability to mount the witness box in Supreme Court to answer questions to affirm the results of the 2020 election is a clear indication that the election was not credible.


Speaking to the Divisional Chief of Prestea Himan, Nana Nteboah Prah as part of his Thank You tour in Western Region, he said;

“The manner in which the Supreme Court dismissed our election petition was not fair. An election petition case has been heard in this country before. When Nana Akufo-Addo sent his 2012 election petition case to court, it was accepted. Afari Gyan responded to his questions.”

“But when it got to our turn…we were not allowed to ask our questions. In 2012, Asiedu Nketiah was asked to testify. In 2020, he was called again to testify. In 2012, Afari Gyan was asked to mount the witness box. But in 2020, when Jean Mensa was asked to mount the witness box, she refused. I heard her saying the other time that the 2020 election is the best election Ghana has ever had. If she is convinced that it is the best election Ghana has ever had, she should have mounted the witness box,” he said.
