According to him, they had planned causing commotion by taking their pound of flesh because they felt the election was rigged in favour of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and President John Dramani Mahama saying they were prepared to die for their party and the country at large.
Sticker remarked that though Nana Addo disagreed with the verdict, he accepted just to let peace prevail in the country.
The Ashanti regional organiser indicated that they rescinded their decision just to maintain the peace in the country fearing the country will be in bad shape.
Sticker reiterated that they could have clashed with supporters of NDC when they rushed to the EC’s office but they did not want to descend into the gutters with them.
He said the NDC is only good at spewing propaganda indicating that they would have taken Ghanaians by storm if they had also acted same.
‘I am telling you this revelation today, before the Supreme Court verdict; you can call central region and other places to verify my assertion. We disagreed with the election results announced by the Electoral Commission (EC). I had met people who were ready to fight; I bought fuel with my own money by mobilising people to register our protest by going on mammoth demonstration, because we knew the election was rigged, our arms were twisted. NDC could have beat us or we could have beaten them to death.
Nana Addo advised us against our plans. He told us that he didn’t like a situation where by his name will be associated with death and blood, he spoke to us and we rescinded our decision, he got the respect of many when he accepted the verdict,‘ he recalled.
He entreated the various political parties to desist from causing violence before, during and after the elections appealing to Ghanaians to vote the Mahama–led government out of office.
