Ghana’s Ambassador to Congo Brazzavile H.E Daniel Kingsley Atta Boafo has warned that any attempt by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to disturb the peace, stability and tranquility of the nation would find himself wanting, adding that the security of Ghana is the prime importance of the government.
According to him, the elections was conducted on a free and fair grounds, the commission has declared the winner and Ghana must move on. ‘We cannot afford to set the clock backwards; we must be serious in this country.”
Former Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Inusah Fuseini has advised former President John Dramani Mahama to declare himself president.
Mr. Fuseini recommended this ‘parallel government’ approach to the Presidential Candidate of the NDC, John Mahama stating that it would serve as a catalyst for power returning to the party.
“I have said and I have advocated that he declares himself President and forms a parallel government.
“The impunity of this government (NPP) which is legendary must stop and that’s how we stop it,’ he said in an interview.
But the comment has since been condemned by many.
Speaking on Ashh Fm’s Key Note on Tuesday 15th December, 2020, H.E Atta Boafo ruled out the possibility of power sharing in Ghana because the country’s electoral laws enable a political party to win elections without violence, disturbance or upheaval.
He observed that Ghana, unlike other African States, is uniquely positioned under “our electoral laws” not to experience power sharing or parallel governments.
He told show host Foxzy that, the NPP victory was one touch henceforth there cannot be any power sharing or parallel government as Inusah Fuseini wants to suggest.
