He said all those who followed the proceedings of the nearly two-month hearing will not be surprised by the judgement pronounced by the Court on Thursday, March 4.
“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 the ruling of the court,” Mr. Mahama stated.
He was addressing journalists and some party faithfuls at his office in Cantonments a few hours after the judgement.
On Thursday, March 4, the seven-member Supreme Court unanimously dismissed Mr. Mahama’s election petition.
According to the President of the Court, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, “the petitioner has not produced any evidence to rebut the presumptions created by the publication of CI 135”.
“We are therefore of no reason to order a rerun. We accordingly dismiss the petition,” Justice Anin-Yeboah, who is also the Chief Justice, said in the judgment.
