The embittered Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has absented himself from the inauguration of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Some NDC Members of Parliament (MPs) have also failed to take part in the ceremony.
However, there has not been any official information from John Mahama’s office explaining his inability to attend the ceremony but it is widely believed that the boycott was obvious in protest of the outcome of the general election.
It could be recalled that the NDC led by John Mahama failed to accept the outcome of the 2020 general elections, alleging malfeasance in the polls.
In view of that John Mahama has filed an election petition in court seeking among others a declaration from the Supreme Court to the effect that, “the purported declaration of the results of the 2020 Presidential Election on the 9th day of December 2020 is unconstitutional, null and void and of no effect whatsoever.”
Also, NDC MPs have staged protest with a march to the headquarters of the Electoral Commission (EC) to petition the electoral management body over their disagreement of the results of the polls; challenging the results of the Techiman South parliamentary poll.
