You can’t use aggression to win power – Oko-Boye to Mahama, NDC


Outgoing Member of Parliament for Ledzokuku, Dr Benard Oko-Boye has told the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama and his party supporters that they cannot use force and hostility to win political power.

He called on Mr Mahama to either accept defeat or use the proper channel in addressing his grievances rather than inciting his supporters to demonstrate on the streets to protest the election results announced by the Chair of the Electoral Commission (EC).

Dr Oko Boye who was defeated in the parliamentary election explained on the New Day programme that some members of his campaign team asked him not to accept the results of the parliamentary election because the margin between him and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate was very close.

But he declined and congratulated him although the polls were closed.

NDC supporters have been hitting the streets to protest against the results of the election as declared by the chair of the Electoral Commission (EC) Jean Mensa after the presidential candidate John Dramani Mahama said he will not accept those results.
