'Mahama should be made to pay a fine in the area of trillions for disgracing Ghana' - Akua Donkor

The seven-member panel of judges on Thursday 4th March dismissed the case brought before it by the former President of Ghana John Dramani Mahama pertaining to the 7th December presidential election.

The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Anin Yeboah and his fellow judges dismissed the case as without merit and ruled in favor of the incumbent President Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo.

The then flagbearer and former President of Ghana John Dramani Mahama in his petition opted for a run off due to his claims that no one obtained the required number to be declared as a winner of the presidential election.

The Electoral commission spearheaded by Jean Adukwei Mensa who doubled as the returning officer for the presidential election declared President Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as the winner with 51.30 percent of the total valid votes cast and John Dramani Mahama also with 47.36 percent.

Although some Ghanaians are congratulating the former President for the good conduct put up during and after the declaration but some are also criticising him for his attitude towards the verdict of the 7th December presidential election which he dubbed as 'fraudulent.'

Budding politician and founder of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) Akua Donkor has opined that John Mahama should not go scot-free for trying to dent the image of Ghana in the eyes of the International Community and should be made to pay a hefty fine to serve as a deterrence to other politicians.

The controversial politician said in an interview, "Mahama should be compelled to pay a hefty trillion fine for disgracing Ghana and this will serve as a caution to others who plan on doing a similar thing in the near future."

To Akua Donkor, Mahama lied to all Ghanaians and international communities when he claimed that no one obtained the required percentage number and therefore should be dealt with.

Do you agree with Akua Donkor that former President John Dramani Mahama should be given a hefty fine?
