Former president John Dramani Mahama has expressed displeasure at the shooting incident which took place at some polling stations in the country on the day of counting of ballots sayind such acts are barbaric.
The ex-president who was not happy about the development said: “The use of armed personnel by government to terrorise and in the process kill and maim innocent voters and security personnel is unacceptable and must be condemned by all Ghanaians. We cannot allow such barbarism to be perpetuated by government on innocent and unarmed citizens.”
Mr. Mahama made the statement as part of a one-day working visit to Techiman on Wednesday, as he led a delegation of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to pay a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief of Techiman and his elders.
The team also visited a number of injured persons and the families of our comrades who were killed as a result of sporadic shooting during the collation of presidential and parliamentary election results in the Techiman South Constituency.
The NDC’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has failed to concede defeat saying that the election was “fraudulent” and has asked for an independent inquiry into the December 7 elections.
