The next National Democratic Congress (NDC) government would launch further investigations into the gruesome fatalities that occured during the 2020 national elections, according to former president John Dramani Mahama.
He vowed to generously compensate all affected families, while criticizing President Nana Addo Dankwa for failing to do so.
“Eight persons died during the 2020 general elections. Up till now, President Akufo-Addo has not sent his condolences to the deceased families. God willing when we win the 2024 general elections, we will surely investigate this matter. Parents who lost their children will handsomely be compensated. We know we cannot exchange money for human beings but this will serve as a consolation to them,” Ex-President Mahama pledged.
During the 2020 elections, there was some electoral violence that led to fatalities in the nation.
In order to cap off his three-day tour of the Eastern Region, Mr. Mahama spoke to branch and constituency executives of the Lower West Akyem and Upper West Akyem constituencies at Asamankese.
