The NDC’s general secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, says until challenges surrounding John Mahama’s election petition are resolved satisfactorily, the NDC will not acknowledge Akufo-Addo as president

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said it will not recognise Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as president until it is satisfied with the outcome of its election petition.

Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Friday, the NDC general secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, said: “We shall not recognise Akufo-Addo as a legitimately elected president of Ghana until all issues surrounding his election are satisfactorily resolved.”

However, Asiedu Nketiah said the party’s MPs will participate in vetting the ministers-designate of President Akufo-Addo.

President Akufo-Addo and his vice-president, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, were sworn in to office on Thursday (7 January 2021) after taking the oaths of office and secrecy.

The largest opposition party in Ghana is already in court challenging the outcome of Election 2020, describing it as “flawed”.


Mahama’s election petition seeks, among other things, a declaration from the Supreme Court to the effect that the purported declaration of the results of the 2020 presidential election on 9 December 2020 was unconstitutional, null and void and of no effect whatsoever.

He also wants the apex court to order a rerun of the election and stop Akufo-Addo from holding himself out as president.
