Former President John Dramani Mahama says he is not enthused by the process of trial and ruling of the Supreme Court in the election petition he filed on Wednesday, December 30, 2020.

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.
