Former President John Dramani Mahama has sent strong signals that the Electoral Commission (EC) is going to be the opposition National Democratic Congress’ (NDC’s) main opponent in the 2024 general election and not necessarily their political rivals, the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Mr. Mahama, who is not yet the party’s candidate for the 2024 contest but has been parading himself as their flag bearer, has not relented in attacking the commission at the least opportunity ever since he lost the 2020 presidential election and unsuccessfully challenged the results declaration at the Supreme Court.

He initially started his unprovoked attacks on the EC Chairperson, Mrs. Jean Mensa, but appears to be shifting his focus on her Deputy in charge of Corporate Services, Dr. Eric Bossman Asare, in recent times.

Dr. Bossman Asare’s crime was the he had challenged the former President, at an official EC press conference, to produce evidence on his unverified claims that the EC thumb printed one million votes in favour of the NPP during the 2020 general election, and had called on the police to investigate the matter since it bothered on criminality.
