The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale Central, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini, has been invited by the Police for calling the 2020 Presidential candidate of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama to form a parallel government.
Fuseini had after the declaration of the presidential results in favour of the Presidential candidate of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in which the NDC is contesting, urged Mahama, to form a parallel government.
“I have said and I have advocated that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flag bearer, John Dramani Mahama and former President of the Republic of Ghana declares himself President and forms a parallel government”, he noted when discussing the post-2020 election on Pan African Television.
