Mahama reports Jean Mensa to The Commonwealth

The 2020 Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has explained his reasons for his inability to accept the results of the elections to The Commonwealth.

The Ghanaian leader stated his position on the elections on Friday, when he met the Secretary General of The Commonwealth, Rt Hon Patricia Scotland QC, in Accra .

Following the meeting, Mr Mahama in a tweet stated: “Meeting with the Secretary General of The Commonwealth, Rt Hon Patricia Scotland QC, and her team.

“Together with Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, NDC National Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and others, we briefed the Secretary General on the basis of our position on the results declared by the Electoral Commission.”


Mr Mahama had described Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa as the most incompetent Chair the Electoral Commission (EC) has ever had.

Mr Mahama told supporters of the party in the Bono East Region on Wednesday, December 16 that since the inception of the Fourth Republican constitution, Mrs Mensa has been the only chair of the Commission who has demonstrated her inability of conducting a free and fair election.

“But I must say, things shouldn’t have happened this way. This is not our first election. But unfortunately, we find ourselves here due to the incompetence of this Electoral Commission,” he stated emphatically.

Supporters of the NDC are yet to accept the results of the election. Demonstrations have been held in Accra, Tamale, Ashaiman and Kumasi to express their displeasure for the outcome of the election.

To that end, Mr Mahama said “if it were to be any of the advanced countries [Jena Mensa] would have resigned by now”.

He further told the supporters that “we know we won the elections but the results were manipulated.”
