The presidential candidate for the opposition National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama has declined the invitation to attend the last state of nation address by president Akufo Addo today in parliament.
The two time failed presidential candidate vowed not to attend the address even if he was invited and indeed he failed to appear.
He has been contesting the results of the December elections declared by the Electoral Commission on December 9th as flawed and fictionalised.
According to Mahama said no one won the election and because of that he was conspicuously missing at the statutory event despite given an invitation.
State protocol expended invitation to the former president today but he declined the invitation for reasons best known to him alone.
Meanwhile the minority members of parliament were all present at the event with former presidents like John Agyekum Kofour also being present at the event.
John Dramani Mahama has filed a petition to the supreme court to overturn the elections results as declared by the Electoral Commission.
