Stop going to court without evidence – Ahiagbah tells NDC

The Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr Richard Ahiagbah has told the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to stop the attitude of filing cases in court without evidence.

His comment follows the dismissal of the NDC Techiman South parliamentary election petition  by the court.

The Wenchi High court in its verdict on Wednesday November 30 also fined the main opposition party GHS100,000.

The election petition was filed by the 2020 Parliamentary Candidate for the party, Christopher Beyere Baasongti against the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) and Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah, the declared winner.

They cited irregularities in collation of results and subsequent declaration as some of the reasons for the petition.

The party believed that the verdict was stolen for the NPP candidate by the elections management body for which they went to court.

Commenting on the the dismissal of the case in a tweet, Mr Ahiagbah said “Memo to the NDC: 1. Stop going to court without evidence 2. Stop making rush claims about electoral malpractice and attacking the EC without evidence 3.

“Trust the electoral process to save lives!”
