Former President John Dramani Mahama has said that majority of Ghanaians voted for a change of government in this year’s elections.
He said while addressing the nation on Thursday, December 10 at the headquarters of the NDC in Accra that the “The National Democratic Congress (NDC) won the presidential and parliamentary elections.”
“The facts and figures on the pink sheets available to us indicate that numerous steps have been taken to manipulate the elections in favour of the incumbent president,” the presidential candidate of the NDC in the just-ended general elections said.
He added “There is no doubt that every Ghanaian in this country voted for change. We did so both In the presidential and parliamentary elections.”
Mr Mahama added “I am a staunch believer in the experiment of democracy, a system of governance that allows the ultimate decision-making power to rest in the hands of you the good people of Ghana. We the people who with an eye towards the future we will like for our dear country elect representatives to forward and realise that vision.
“Government serves at the choice and direction of the people of this great nation.”
He added “We are unable to acce0pt the results of the elections as announced by the Electoral Commission. These results are flawed.”
