Former President John Mahama has described as an ‘abomination’ the ‘invasion’ of Parliament by some military officers during the inauguration of the 8th Parliament.
According to him, “everything that is wrong with our democracy under this President played out in Parliament that night; snatching of ballot papers, attempting to disenfranchise voters by getting Assin North out of the chambers and all the other things. Attempting to compromise the secrecy of the ballot, the entry of the military into the chamber; that is an abomination, it makes us look a banana republic”
Mr Mahama who was speaking to NDC MPs commended them for fighting a good fight and for protecting the ‘democracy of Ghana’
“…and that there is no force that can defeat a people who are together and united and acting with a singular purpose and that is what we saw on the floor that night. it was not a fight for yourselves it was not a fight for the NDC, it was a fight to protect the democracy of ghana” he added
