NDC Doesn’t Recognise Akufo-Addo As President – Asiedu Nketiah

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said it will not recognize Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as president until it is satisfied with the outcome of its election petition.

Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Friday, the NDC general secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, said: “We shall not recognise Akufo-Addo as a legitimately elected president of Ghana until all issues surrounding his election are satisfactorily resolved.”

However, Asiedu Nketiah said the party’s MPs will participate in vetting the ministers-designate of President Akufo-Addo.

President Akufo-Addo and his vice-president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, were sworn into office on Thursday (7 January 2021) after taking the oaths of office and secrecy.

The largest opposition party in Ghana is already in court challenging the outcome of Election 2020, describing it as “flawed”.
