The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Flag Bearer and members as a whole have been very much controversial and indecisive since the Electoral Commission of Ghana declared President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the President elect.
According to the leading opposition Party (NDC), the Election was rigged and so they will not concede to a flawed election by the Electoral Commission of Ghana. This brouhaha started after the EC changed some figures in the election result which was already declared.
On the 7th of January, 2020. The President elect, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was sworn in as the President of Ghana from the year 2021 to 2025 as he has started ruling in his second term.
However, the National Democratic Congress members boycotted the inauguration ceremony of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his vice, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as they went to Abossey Okai to mourn the Election shooting victims whiles the ceremony was ongoing.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the NDC, has likened the Swearing-In ceremony of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s second time to a funeral service.
He said anyone who has been victorious at something should be bold and proud enough to showcase it but the visible unhappiness on the face of the president during his investiture on January 7 gives credence to the fact that he knows there was something wrong with his victory in the 2020 polls
He then described the decision to have such a small ceremony at the forecourt of Parliament with restricted access to invited guests as something only akin to a funeral ceremony.
“It was obvious that the government was about dying and so it was not surprising that their choice for the ceremony was a place that shares a wall with the Osu Cemetery,” he said.
