Mahama to speak on dismissal of 2020 election petition later today

Former President John Mahama will react to the dismissal of his election petition by the Supreme Court later today at his office in Accra, the National Democratic Congress has said.

“We are unable to address you now, however, our flagbearer will address you in his office at 5pm today,” a member of the legal team of the party Abraham Amaliba told journalists after the Supreme Court delivered its judgement Thursday.

Ghana’s Supreme court has unanimously dismissed the 2020 election petition filed by the NDC Presidential candidate John Mahama .

The long-awaited verdict confirms Akufo Addo’s victory as the New Patriotic Party presidential candidate during last December’s presidential election.

Ghana’s electoral commission declared Akufo Addo the winner with 51.59 percent of valid votes cast as against John Mahama of the NDC who polled 47.36 percent. 

In delivering his judgement the court said the petitioner failed to prove his case hence the decision to dismiss the petition.
