Ghana’s police service has announced that it has secured a court order banning opposition supporters from protesting amid post-election agitations.

Opposition supporters have been demonstrating on the streets alleging of electoral fraud over the December 7 presidential and parliamentary election results.

The electoral commission declared the incumbent President Nana Akufo-Addo as winner of the presidential election.

But the result was rejected by the opposition leader and former president, John Mahama.

His party is also challenging some parliamentary election results with declared parliamentary results resulting in a hung parliament in Ghana from next month.

The opposition NDC had notified the police of its intended daily protests between Sunday 20th December 2020 and 10th January, 2021.

But the police in a statement said “The request by the NDC cannot obviously be met by the police in view of ongoing post-election and multi-faceted security operations for the festive season and beyond.”

There are indications though that the opposition will soon file a petition in court this month over the election results as it runs out of time to do so before January 7 when a new president is sworn into office.
