Boycott the Swearing-In of Akufo-Addo – Respect My Vote to the International Community
Pro-Democracy Group, Respect My Vote Movement (RVM) has called on the international community and well-meaning Ghanaians to boycott the swearing in ceremony of Nana Akufo-Addo describing him as an illegitimate president-elect.
It would be recalled that, the Electoral Commission of Ghana declared Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo winner of the just ended 2020 Presidential election which had numerous errors hence invalid.
The call was made through a Press Release issued in Accra on this day, 5th January,2021.
According to the Movement, an analysis of the figures show that Akufo-Addo did not obtain the required 50 percent plus 1 vote, hence the Electoral Commission manipulated the figures to declare Akufo-Addo the winner.
Adding that, the results of errors are therefore being challenged at the Supreme Court by the main opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC)
“To confirm the fact that Akufo-Addo was invalidly declared winner, the inaugural ceremony has for the first time been confined to the chamber of parliament with the deployment of 6000 security personnel to provide security for fear that Ghanaians will protest against the inauguration”, Respect My Vote Movement stated.
Based on the above, Respect My Vote Movement is calling on the international community and well meaning Ghanaians to boycott the upcoming Swearing-In ceremony on thursday, 7th January,2021.
Stressing that, the ceremony is unconstitutional and does not advance the democratic credentials of Ghana since ots independence.
“This is to ensure that they don’t participate in this unconstitutionality and the installation of a modern day dictator who has subverted the constitution against the sovereign will of Ghanaians with the help of the Electoral Commission”, Reapect My Vote Movement emphasized.
Meanwhile, the Presidential Candidate of the main oppostion party, National Demlcratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama is challenging the just ended Presidential elections results at Ghana’s Apex Court, Supreme Court through a petition.
