Ghana: Court dismisses petition challenging re-election of Akufo-Addo

– –

Ghana’s Supreme Court has dismissed a petition filed by Ghana’s former President, John Mahama challenging the re-election of incumbent President Nana Akufo-Addo.

Mr. Mahama was challenging the credibility of the results declared by the Electoral commission alleging that they were flawed.

But after over 42 days of trial, the court said there was no evidence to proof the issues raised by the petitioner.

The judgment brings an end to the legal challenge to the presidential election results of 2020.

The legal team of the incumbent President has welcomed the ruling but that of the opposition leader has expressed disappointment.
