Stay Calm. NDC Sends Message To Their Supporters Ahead Of Supreme Court's Verdict

The flag bearer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama filed a petition at the Supreme Court after the Electoral Commission announced the winner of the 2020 presidential election. According to the Former President, no candidate obtained the required votes to be declared as the winner of the election.

Many applications filed the Petitioner and the leader of his legal team, Tsatsu Tsikata, have been rejected by the supreme court on constitutional basis. The wish of the leader of the legal team for the Petitioner was quashed by the court after they closed their case. The Petitioner then filed and application to reopen his case and subpoena Jean Mensah the chairperson of the EC but that application was also rejected.

The supreme Court after hearing many arguments from both Counsels ordered counsels to submit their closing address for they will make the final verdict on the petition on the 4th of March. As the court ordered, the Petitioner and the Respondents have submitted the closing address hoping the court rule in favor of them.
