Going To Court Is Just Waste of Money – John Mahama Warned.
Dr. Henry Lartey, the flagbear of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP) has urged the flagbear of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama to reconsider his to challenge the outcome of the just ended 2020 elections in court this week.
He plea is a follow up to the protest by the leaders and supporters of the National Democratic Congress as a result of the NPP’s Flagbear President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo was declared the President elect by the Electoral Commission of Ghana.
The party leaders executives have hinted to seek for legal address on the case.
On Newsfile on JoyNews Channel, Rockson Nelson, NDC legal team member said that his party will be challenging the Elections results in the law court, but the GCPP Presidential candidate said the move by the National Democratic Congress as an unwanted moves.
Henry Lartey also said that it will be best for John Dramani Mahama to accept defeat and move on just like that other Flagbearers.
“He has lost the election, he shouldn’t go to court; it’s a waste of money. The presidential candidates, those of us who conceded have come together to maintain peace, we are trying to engage the former president but we were not able to see him. This is not the Mahama I know, he is a very open person but what is happening is not good for his reputation,” he said.
He later mentioned that Mahama is being pushed by an unknown people in the NDC, he has feelings that Mahama don’t want to go to Court.
“Mahama is been pushed to do what he is doing. I have no idea who is behind this, but he wouldn’t want to do this at all. I may be wrong but I have a feeling that there is a caucus that is pushing him.
He concluded that a team of six members tired to meet Mahama but he turned them down.
“We were a team of six including myself, Dr Hassan Ayarigah of APC, Ivor Greenstreet of the CPP, David Apasera of PNC, JOY 2012/16, and Kofi Akpaloo of IPG, we tried to meet him…. If the NDC wants peace this is not how to deal with it,” he concluded.
