The Founder of the Atta Mills Institute and former Deputy Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr. Samuel Koku Anyidoho has once again jabbed Former President John Dramani Mahama on his 2020 Election Petition case.
According to Mr. Samuel Koku Anyidoho the 2020 Presidential Candidate of NDC John Dramani Mahama went to Supreme Court to challenge the outcome of the December 2020 Presidential Election as an individual, hence must be allowed to fight his own battles and leave the NDC alone.
He further said, the Petition at the Supreme Court does not represent the National Democratic Congress as a party but rather an individual (John Dramani Mahama) who was in court to challenge election results as declared by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Mrs. Jean Mensa.
In tweets, Mr. Samuel Koku Anyidoho said; “People should pls remember that it is not the NDC which is in court ooo: it is an individual who is in court! Let John Mahama fight his own battles and leave the NDC alone to exist.”
Supreme Court’s Ruling
The Supreme Court in a judgement read by the Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah has dismissed John Dramani Mahama’s (Petitioner) election petition brought before it challenging the 2020 Presidential Election outcome.
According to the Supreme Court, “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 while reading the ruling of the court on Thursday, March 4, 2021 on behalf of the seven panel Judges said, they unanimously dismissed the petition. “Your petition is dismissed without merit.” The Chief Justice said.
