After Thursday’s public distraction and violence at the offices of the Electoral Commission, Ghanaians have taken to social media to condemn the leader of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama.
Hundreds clad in red attire and NDC party colours, amassed at the headquarters of the EC on Thursday morning with placards to register their protest against the results of the elections.
The police then intervened in the situation and things turned rather ugly as the NDC supporters began littering the streets, burning car tyres, a situation which led to somewhat a public distraction.
The Police and military managed to arrest some of the protesters who kept chanting “No Mahama, No Peace”.
This situation clearly disgusted some Ghanaians who took to social media to register their displeasure with the NDC and particularly its defeated flag bearer who has clearly failed to control his supporters.
Following the orders of the their flag bearer and the leadership of the NDC, supporters of the party began burning car tyres openly in the streets as well as other acts of hooliganism across the country after losing the December 7 elections.
The harshtag #MahamaStopTheViolence is currently trending Number One on Twitter.
