?NDC can bribe everybody in this country to steal the elections but NDC cannot bribe God and the will of God will prevail, Nana Akufo-Addo and NPP would prevail?.

The above statement was what big shots of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) told the teeming supporters of the party who had gathered at Obra Spot, near Kwame Nkrumah Circle to register their strongest disapproval about what they described as ?fraudulent results of the 2012 elections and unlawful declaration? of President John Dramani Mahama as the president-elect by Electoral Commission (EC) Chairman, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan.

NPP Deputy Communications Director Sammi Awuku yesterday told party faithful that the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) had bribed some group of people to help steal the mandate of Ghanaians.

However, the NDC, he pointed out, could not bribe God who had already given victory to Nana Akufo-Addo in this year?s general elections, adding that all corrupt individuals engaged in surreptitious moves to sidestep the will of God would eventually face the wrath of the Almighty.

Awuku entreated NPP supporters to remain steadfast but non-violent in ensuring that Afari-Gyan respected the will of the electorate even as the party?s leadership used all legal means to ensure Nana Akufo-Addo is declared president of Ghana.

According to the NPP, veritable evidence from just 28 out of the 275 constituencies indicated that the ruling NDC, with the connivance of the EC, doctored electoral figures, giving President Mahama undeserved votes of over 100,000 whilst at the same time reducing the votes of Nana Akufo-Addo.

This fraudulent act, NPP indicated, was widespread throughout the country which evidence the party would be adducing at the Supreme Court.

Angry NPP supporters chanted ?Afari-Gyan 419, No Nana Akufo-Addo, no President? for more than six hours, waiting for the party?s leadership to address them.

Meanwhile, armed military and police personnel yesterday surrounded Obra Spot as they virtually took over the streets at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle with armoured and patrol vehicles, ostensibly to put some fear in NPP supporters.

Whilst addressing supporters, NPP General Secretary Kwadwo Owusu-Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John, entreated the party?s faithful not to engage in any violent activities that would subvert the security of the state which would invite the police or the military to brutalise them.

?Majority of Ghanaians voted for NPP and Nana Akufo-Addo. It is your legitimate right to ensure that Nana Akufo-Addo is declared the winner of this year?s presidential election but do not be destructive, do not attack cars and people who I believe voted for Nana Akufo-Addo,? Sir John admonished NPP supporters.

Receiving an enthusiastic welcome on stage, MP for Assin North Ken Agyapong further admonished NPP supporters not to take the law into their own hands in their quest to ensure that the true verdict of the majority of Ghanaians was respected.

He urged the supporters to stand firm and united until the EC reversed its decision on President Mahama by declaring Nana Akufo-Addo the true winner of the 2012 presidential election.

Former National Youth Organiser Anthony Karbo said NPP supporters would continue to mobilize, organize and fight until the true results of the 2012 elections were declared. ?We would continue fight for our rights but I urge you all not to engage in any acts of violence that would subvert the security of the nation,? he reiterated.
