Ghana’s Supreme Court docket has unanimously upheld the December 7, 2020, victory of President Nana Addo Dankwa AKufo-Addo.
The seven-member panel dismissed the petition filed by John Dramani Mahama.
The previous president was the candidate of the Nationwide Democratic Congress (NDC), the primary opposition.
Chief Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, in his judgment, declared that the Mahama’s petition had no benefit.
Anin-Yeboah mentioned Mahama didn’t fulfill all points outlined by the court docket to find out the case.
“We due to this fact haven’t any motive to order a re-run as pleaded by the petitioner (Mahama). We accordingly dismiss the petition as having no benefit,” the Chief Justice dominated.
The Chairperson of the Electoral Fee, Jean Mensa, declared Akufo-Addo winner of the vote with 51.59 p.c of legitimate votes forged as in opposition to Mahama’s 47.36 p.c.
