After December 7, 2020 elections, when the Electoral Commission(EC) chair , Jean Adukwei Mensa announced the winner of Presidential Elections, the NDC supporters have emarked on seemingly violent demonstrations. One of the incidences, some of the Natioanl Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament (MPs) marched to the EC heaquarters in Accra to present their petition for re-collation of Techiman South Parliamentary election results to the commission for necessary actions, however, met the absence of the EC chair and others who were supposed to receive the documented petition.
The NDC MPs namely;Mr. Iddrisu, Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, Samuel George, John Abdulai Jinapor, Rockson Defeamekpor, Ras Mubarak, Mutawakilu Adam, Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi, Dr. Kwabena Donkor, A.B.A. Fuseini, Kwabena Minta Akando, Yusif Issaka Jaja, Isaac Adongo, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, James Klutse Avedzi, James Agalga, Collins Dauda, Abdul Rashid Pelpuo, Richard Quashigah and Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings were charged for unlawfully assembly “in a manner likely to cause persons in the neighbourhood reasonable fear where a breach of the peace is likely to be occasioned who were supposed to have appeared before Accra Circuit court on Monday January 4,2020 but willfully did not.
Haruna Iddrisu, the Minority Leader in his response to failure of himself and other NDC MPs appearing at court says they were not served with court sermons and that the NDC does not subscribe to social media invitations by the Ghana Police Service. “We don’t respond, and we will not respond to social media invitations by the Ghana Police Service. I have not been personally served as is the requirement of the law as well as many of my colleagues. “The Ghana police service is allowing itself to be used as a tool of manipulation”, Haruna Iddrisu said.
“So somebody somewhere rehearsed enemies that they are targeting for purposes of humiliation to project us as if we are not law-abiding citizens,” the Minority Leader insisted, he indicated. Added that Dr. Zenator Agyeman-Rawlings and Mr. Adongo did not participate in the march.
Due to the absence of NDC MPs at the court, the Accra Circuit Court 11 has adjourned the case for hearing to 19th January 2021
