Political activist Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A-Plus has said that National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer for the 2020 polls, John Dramani Mahama did not lose the elections.
According to him the 2020 polls should have gone to a run-off because there were two winners.
He however noted that the former president and his legal team failed to proof their case in court, a reason why it was dismissed.
“He (John Mahama) didn’t lose the elections. In an election, there can be two winners and the election will go to a run-off so I think the election should have gone to a run-off,” he said on Starr FM.
“When you take a case to court, you don’t tell your truth and expect the judges to listen to your truth and make [a] judgement based on your truth. The judges were not at the polling station so if you tell the judge that you are not satisfied, you have to come prepared,” he said.
A-Plus was of the view that a victory for Mahama could have sent a message to politicians that they cannot continue to mess with the Ghanaian people because they would not be guaranteed two straight terms.
“What is anybody going to do differently. The only reason I would have been happy had John Mahama won was that Ghanaians would have shown government that we’ve got [to] a stage where they can kick you out after one term if you are not fighting corruption,” he said.
