Member of Parliament for Nhyiaeso constituency, Stephen Amoah has admonished National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) faithfuls to accept the verdict that the Supreme Court will deliver on the 2020 Presidential elections petition before the court.
The Supreme Court has begun hearing into the petition filed by the NDC and their Presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama challenging the victory of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the December 7 Presidential elections.
The party has dragged the President and the Electoral Commission Chairperson Jean Mensa to the Supreme Court seeking a second election as they believe the President didn’t get the required results to be declared winner.
Touching on the legal battle, Hon. Stephen Amoah has advised the NDC not to hit the streets again after the Supreme Court verdict.
According to him, he believes President Nana Akufo-Addo legitimately won the Presidential elections, hence the NDC must ensure ”the outcome of the court has to be respected because the nation is saddled with a disease”.
”We don’t want them to go back to the streets after going to the court…I don’t want a situation where, after the court hearing, someone will stand somewhere and say I don’t agree; so I will burn tyres again and commit this or that wrongdoing. No! I plead with them. Court of competent jurisdiction at that level, Supreme Court, is not child’s play. We need to respect the outcome and move on as a country”, he stressed on Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”.
