General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, told journalists in the nation’s capital, Accra, until the party’s election petition is concluded and they are satisfied Akufo-Addo is occupying the presidency illegally.
“We shall not recognize Akufo-Addo as a legitimately elected president of Ghana until all issues surrounding his election are satisfactorily resolved,” he stated.
