A member of the Communications Team of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Fredrick Kofi Ameyaw has insisted that former President John Dramani Mahama is deliberately delaying the hearing of the election petition for his political ambitions.
According to him, Mr. Mahama would stage a comeback in 2024 and is using the court to gain public sympathy.
“I think the petitioner former President John Dramani Mahama is delaying the court process to stay relevant for his political ambition and is also abusing the constitutional provisions for his political comeback and also to toy with his supporters.”
“When you look at his petition, and you recall that, a day after the declaration of the results, he told his supporters that he won the elections, but he is in court asking for a rerun, and for me, clearly, that is a form of deceit to the Ghanaians and his supporters.”
Mr. Ameyaw made these comments on Citi TV‘s Breakfast Daily programme on Tuesday, January 26, 2021.
Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini described such claims as “dishonest”.
According to him, Mr. Mahama is only seeking justice in court and nothing else.
