Will Mahama Accept Defeat Or Will Go To The ICJ If Court Ruling Doesn't Favour Him On 4th March?

Will Mahama Accept Defeat Or Will Go To The International Court Of Justice (ICJ) If Court Ruling Doesn't Favour Him On 4th March?

On the 7th December 2020, Ghana went on Polls to elect their leaders for the next four years, the election is over but it matters still exists. The leader and flagbear of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama filed his petition at the supreme court to challenge the 2020 presidential election few days after the final declaration was made by the chairperson of the electoral commission, madam Jean Mensa.

The main aim of the petitioner was to prove that no candidate got above fifty percent of the total valid votes cast, so the supreme court should order the electoral commission to organise a Runoff election between him (John Mahama) and Nana Addo.

Hearing of the petition started in January and the court has set to declare the final in early on 4th March, the petitioner is expected to deliver his closing submissions on Tuesday, February 23 in time for judgement on Thursday, March 4.

The question on board is, will John Mahama and NDC accept the final judgement from the supreme court of justice or they will proceed to the International court of justice (the world court) for further review on the 2020 election petition?

What do you suggest John Mahama and NDC should do if things does not favour them in Supreme court on 4th March, accept defeat or go to the ICJ?
