The Supreme Court of Ghana has by a consistent or “unanimous” choice excused the political decision request brought before it by Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 races, John Dramani Mahama.
The seven-member panel led by the Chief Justice Kwesi Anin-Yeboah dismissed the appeal on Thursday March 4.
“The petitioner has not produced any evidence to rebut the presumptions created by the publication of CI 135. We are therefore no reason to order a rerun. We accordingly dismiss the petition,” the Chief Justice said in the judgment.
The justices of the apex court further told witnesses of the petitioner, Mr Rojo Mettle-Nunoo and Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte to blame themselves for deserting their obligations in the strong room during the last collation of the political election results if their claims are to be believed.
