Former President John Dramani Mahama has alleged that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is using the military to intimidate voters in the Volta Region and to also attempt to change election results.
Mr Mahama made this allegation on Tuesday, December 8.
He has sent a strong warning to the government to resist any attempt to change results of Monday’s elections.
According to him, his party has won 10 out of the 16 regions and they have obtained a clear majority of 140 out of the 275 parliamentary seats.
For him, the government is trying to use the military to overturn results.
“You cannot use the military to overturn results in constituencies that we have won,” he warned.
Meanwhile, the Electoral Commission of Ghana has warned political parties to desist from declaring election results.
A statement noted that it is still collating the results and further urged Ghanaians to exercise patience.
“The Commission wishes to inform the general public that the process of collating elections results at all the constituencies and regional collation centers is currently ongoing in the presence of political party agents.
“The Commission staff and field officials are working round the clock to ensure that the collated results are accurate and a true reflection of three will of the people of Ghana who turned out in their numbers to vote in the December elections.
