Former President John Dramani Mahama has again lambasted the Chair of the Electoral Commission (EC), Jean Adukwei Mensa for her poor and manner she handled the 2020 general elections.

Former President Mahama said there were several oddity in the election results as announced by Mrs Mensa, for which he went to the Supreme Court.

Speaking to the United States Chapter of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the Bentley University on Sunday March 27, Mr Mahama said “we went to court for many reasons, one, because of the many anomalies in the results.

“The Electoral Commissioner went to an unknown location and declared the election results from there and after she declared the results and the results didn’t tally, she came and changed the results and changed, we don’t know how many multiple times. That was an issue that we had to deal with.”

Mr further insisted that the attachment of the Military in the 2020 elections was wrong.

He also threw more lights at polling stations and collation centres during Ghana’s elections has always been the duty of the Police and not the Military.

The NDC’s 2020 presidential candidate said “8 of our citizens were brutally gunned down by men who were in uniform, we know those people, the Invisible and Delta Forces that have been enrolled into the Army and the Police.

“Our forces have been been quite disciplined forces and today, you see some of them and you wonder whether these are really disciplined Ghanaian soldiers or Policemen. You see them wearing earrings and they wear Azugu masks.”

He further said, “For the first time, at the polling stations we saw heavily armed soldiers.

“We have all been MPs before, security at collation centres and around electoral polling stations was handled mainly by the Police, the Military were not involved. On this occasion, you see Military at polling stations and at collation centres. I think it was wrong.”

Former President Mahama had earlier faulted the widespread use of the military to attack unarmed civilians at various collation centres across the country.

The 2020 elections observed eight deaths and several injuries.
