I disagree with Supreme Court judgment on Election Petition – Mahama

Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 polls, John Mahama has registered his disagreement with the final judgment of the Supreme Court in his election petition case.

Addressing Ghanaians from his office in Accra, John Mahama said while he was not surprised at the decision of the judges, he disagrees with it and the processes the trial went through.

“No one who followed the proceedings of the Supreme Court will be surprised by the judgment pronounced a few hours ago. Much as I am aware that we are legally bound by the decision of the highest court of the land, the Supreme court of Ghana, I disagree with the process of the trial and ruling of the court,” he said.

Among other things, John Mahama expressed regret that the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa was not allowed to testify in court despite his applications for such to happen.

He believed that lawyers for the respondents and the Supreme Court allowed the EC Chairperson to evade “accountability” for her work.
