Th lead-member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has recently descended heavily on a Facebook User who passed what he describes as a silly comment under his post.
This was after John Dramani Mahama reacted to the recent clash between the police and some NDC members of parliaments who marched to the EC’s office to present their petition but were denied by the police.
Earlier, the NDC minority clashed with the Police after they stormed the office of the Electoral Commission of Ghana.
In reaction to that, their flagbearer, John Mahama took to his Facebook and wrote; Tuesday was a sad day for Ghana’s democracy when the Minority Members of Ghana’s Parliament were prevented from presenting a petition to the Electoral Commission in respect of the recent Parliamentary election in Techiman South. But let me congratulate the Minority Leader and the Caucus for stepping out boldly in defence of the democratic rights of Ghanaians. The conduct of the Electoral Commission (EC), with the tacit support of the incumbent President, Nana Akufo-Addo, using security personnel acting capriciously even towards Members of Parliament is not something anyone could have envisaged in our beloved country in the course of our 4th Republic. Clearly the EC and its Chairperson are in connivance with Nana Akufo-Addo to fraudulently keep the Techiman South seat on the NPP side. This is a clear subversion of the will of the people. I salute all who have had courage to call out the EC and the Nana Akufo-Addo administration in this brazen act of trampling on the democratic will of the people.I want to restate our challenge to the EC, to come out and show Ghanaians their Results Summary sheet and pink sheets for the Techiman South Constituency.
His post sparked a lot of controversies on Facebook as some of his followers stood with him on his statement and other also spoke against him.
One of the commentors named Jamil Moon also expressed his opinion on the statement made John Mahama by saying that he agrees with him but it was not necessary for the NDC minority to march to the office of the EC, adding that they could have allowed only the leader of the minority, Haruna Iddrisu to present the petition to the EC.
He wrote; You are beating unnecessary war drum. Does it take a whole crowd in a form of demonstrations to present a petition?. Why not just send Haurna Iddrisu to send it there?. It better still you can mail it. My man stop this things ohh. We all day behind you but you are not following due diligence. The elections are over at least lets have some peace.
In response to his comment, John Mahama dragged him in the mud and described him as “Ofui”.
When you did let my vote count LMVC, you should have sent only one person to present the petition at Flagstaff House! Ofui!!, Mahama wrote.
