Today, Thursday, March 4, 2021 was the final day of the election hearing. It was a tense day as the sides at court waited anxiously for the verdict of the highest court of the land. In a verdict that lasted by close to 2 hours, Chief Justice Anin Yeboah brought out the merits and demerits of the case that was brought before it by John Mahama.
In a unanimous verdict the judges ruled that the case of the Petitioner had no merit and as such was dismissed. This means that John Mahama has failed to overturn the results of the 2020 elections which he lost to President Akufo-Addo.
After the end of the hearing there were jubilation and joy from the legal team of the 2nd Respondent who were ecstatic and in uncontrollable euphoria. Akoto Ampaw, head of the Akufo-Addo couldn’t hide his joy and had a moment to show his dance moves with his learned colleagues.
Check out some of the photos as the team sang songs of jubilation at the premises of the court.
