Ghana’s incumbent presidents, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his vice, Dr Muhammadu Bawumia have reacted to the Supreme Courts’ ruling over their rival’s election petition case.
The Supreme Court dismissed the election petition brought before it by John Dramani Mahama, the 2020 Presidential Candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“The petitioner did not demonstrate in any way how the errors [committed by the EC] affected the declaration of the election…We have therefore no reason to order a re-run [of the polls]. We accordingly dismiss the petition,” Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah said while reading the ruling of the court on Thursday, March 4, 2021.
John Mahama was challenging the results of the polls insisting that none of the nine presidential candidates obtained the mandatory 50%+1 vote constitutional threshold to be declared the winner of the polls.
But reacting to the ruling, Akufo-Addo and Bawumia is seen vigirously watching the court’s ruling with rapt attention.
In the video available to Gossips24.com the two great political leaders happily jubilated after the court ruled in their favour.
