A pro-NDC group, Respect My Vote Movement, has petitioned 20 countries and International Organisation against accepting President Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 elections.
The group in their petition urged the leaders of those nations not to recognize Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as President-elect because the results of the elections are disputed.
Some of the governments and international organizations petitioned include: the United States, European Union, United Kingdom, Canada, the Federal Republic of Germany, and The Peoples Republic of China.
The rest include the United Nations, The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
Respect My Vote has called on these governments and international organizations to withhold any support to the government of Ghana until the disputes around the election are resolved.
It may be recalled that the Electoral Commission declared the results of the 2020 Presidential Election on 9th December and subsequently changed the results on the 10th and 15th of the same month.
Speaking on behalf of the group, the Ashanti Regional spokesperson Ama Owusuah Boateng contended that the EC’s declaration of results in the just-ended elections constitute a subversion of the will of the people.
She indicated that they have also reported the Akufo-Addo government for the use of brute force in brutalizing ordinary citizens during the elections as part of the alleged plans to rig the polls leading to the death of 7 innocent unarmed civilians.
Ms. Owusuah Boateng further revealed the systematic use of the police and the judiciary by the Akufo-Addo government as objects of oppression and abuse of fundamental human rights and freedoms.
When asked their position of any party not okay to EC’s decision to seek legal action from Court, Ama Owusuah Boateng said the court cannot be mutually exclusive and wondered why everyone is using the court as the final way to seek justice in the country.
