The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says the Legal Team of President Akufo-Addo is ready to expose the emptiness of NDC Flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama's Election Petition at the Supreme Court.
A statement signed and issued by Mr Yaw Buaben Asamoa, NPP's Communications Director, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, on Thursday, said the court process would indeed, reaffirm President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the true winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.
It said the NPP's response in court would show that the NDC had no material evidence of value and expose the Party's false claims that its flag bearer, John Mahama won the just-ended election.
"The NPP is assured that the 7th December 2020 Elections was won fair and square. Indeed, the evidence presented by the NDC has only reassured the people of Ghana that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo won the elections.
Mr Mahama, through his lawyers, on Wednesday, December 30,2020 filed a petition at the country's apex court to legally challenge the 2020 Presidential Election, which the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs Jean Mensa, declared President Akufo-Addo, as President-elect on December 9,2020.
Government has announced that it has signed a contract for the design and construction of the Accra-Tema Motorway and extensions project.
The Ministry of Roads & Highways announced in a statement that the contract has been signed with Portuguese company, Mota-Engil, Engenharia E Constructao Africa S. A.
The press statement signed by the Minister of Roads & Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, said the contract was signed on December 16, 2020, after the approval of the Public Procurement Authority and the Central Tender Review Board.
"Actual construction works will commence soon after the detailed design has been approved and relocation of services are completed," the statement explained.
The reconstruction and expansion of the existing 19.5km motorway into a two-lane dual carriageway for the freeway and a three-lane dual carriageway for the urban highway is among the key scopes of the project.
The freeway will remain concrete surfacing, whilst the urban highway will be in asphaltic concrete with paved shoulders, the statement said.
The call for the entire Fomena Constituency executives to resign, according to the MP-elect, falls in line with his laid down conditions to determine whether to rejoin the party or otherwise.
The development puts the fate of the NPP to become the Majority in Parliament on the balance as the independent MP-elect intensifies demands before crossing carpet to the NPP in Parliament.
The latest condition is for the dissolution of the entire executives as he maintains “the current crop of NPP executives in Fomena are corrupt, incompetent and I will not be able to work with such executives”.
