Supporters of the opposition party, NDC in Ghana have clashed with the police as they continue their protests against the conduct of the December 7 elections.

They have been staging nationwide protests, challenging the declaration of the incumbent Nana Akufo Addo as President-elect.

The largest opposition party has also accused the Electoral Commission of vote padding and rigging to keep the governing party in power.

Hundreds of NDC supporters on Thursday morning marched to the EC headquarters, in the capital, Accra chanting slogans such as “No Mahama No peace”.

There were chaotic scenes as the aggrieved supporters burnt car tyres which compelled the police to disperse them with hot water.
