We will respect the verdict of the Supreme Court - NPP

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said that it will respect the verdict of the Supreme Court regarding its challenge of the outcome of the December 7 elections no matter what the outcome.

According to the party, although it has enough evidence to prove that the results were tampered with by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and is firm in the belief that the court will rule in its favour, it is prepared to accept any verdict.

At a rally featuring regional party bigwigs at the Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra Wednesday, Kwabena Dwomoh, a Deputy National Coordinator of the New Patriotic Volunteers, a new wing of the party, said that the NDC, in collaboration with the Electoral Commission (EC), stole the mandate of the people and that the party, from Friday, would adduce enough evidence before the Supreme Court to prove its case.

The rally was attended by hundreds of party supporters clad in party T-shirts and other paraphernalia.

It was addressed by more than 15 NOO regional executives and newly elected Members of Parliament from the Greater Accra Region.

The EC, on December 9, declared President John Mahama winner of the polls. He polled 5,574,761 votes, representing 50.70 per cent of the valid votes cast, to beat his closest challenger, Nana Akufo-Addo of the NPP, who obtained 5,248,898 votes, representing 47.74 per cent.

Since the declaration of the results, the NPP has insisted that the polls were rigged in favour of President Mahama and as a result asked its flag bearer not to concede defeat.

Commenting on what he termed a raid by the police at a house near the Burkina Faso Embassy in Accra where NPP faithful were putting together evidence of irregularities, he said it had only intimidated the members of the party but would not deter them.

He said members would gather at the party's headquarters today at 8 a.m. to march to Nana Akufo-Addo's house to show solidarity with him. He therefore advised party members to endeavor to be present.
