Former President and flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 general elections John Dramani Mahama has advised the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) to use the 2024 elections as a chance to clear any bad perception the public has against it.
In an exclusive interview with Media General’s Ashanti Regional correspondent, William Eavns-Nkum the former president stated that a lot of things went wrong in the 2020 elections which needed to be corrected going forward.
“A lot of things didn’t go well especially the discovery of extra ballot papers,” he said.
Mr Mahama continued “We’ve held elections, we’ve had ECs.. from (Dr Kwadwo) Afari Gyan and all that. I’ve never seen people in possession of such authentic ballot papers, same format, everything. There’s no difference. You cannot tell the difference between that ballot paper and what the EC had and they had in possession of the stamp that the EC had.”
The former president who has been in the Ashanti Region on a ‘Thank You Tour’ warned that the irregularities that characterised the 2020 elections will not happen again.
“We will just make sure that it doesn’t happen again”, John Mahama added.
