The United States ambassador to Ghana, Her Excellency Stephanie S. Sullivan has urged former President John Mahama who doubles as the presidential candidate for the opposition National Democratic Congress to go to court to address his rejection of the 2020 presidential polls.
Her statement comes after she called on the NDC candidate and her running mate on Thursday 17th December 2020.
The NDC led by John Mahama rejected the results of the 2020 presidential elections after the EC declared president Nana Akuffo Addo as president for a second term. According to the NDC, there were clear evidence of electoral malpractices coupled with incidences which were clear that the election results were fake. Their rejection of the results has sparked series of demonstrations across the country.
Taking to their official Twitter handle, the US embassy in Ghana said its ambassador has urged the NDC and all political parties who have issues with the electoral results to go to court or seek the right channels to address the issues. It tweeted;
“Ambassador Stephanie Sullivan met with former President @JDMahama and discussed the recent elections. We continue to urge political parties to pursue legal channels for any electoral disputes and to preserve the peace in Ghana. #USinGhana”
