After the declaration of verdict by the supreme court, briefing of the media and supporters have been done by both parties.
The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) John Boadu says the witnesses arranged by John Dramani Mahama in the just-finished election petition hearing made the case very simpler for the Supreme Court to decide.
He saw that the Court turned out to be just magnanimous with two of the observers as a portion of the things they said were "fanciful".
JB, as he is lovingly called, was addressing journalists and supporters of the party after the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal documented by Mr Mahama.
In its judgment on Thursday, March 4, the Court said the candidate didn't deliver sufficient proof to counter the assumptions made by the distribution of CI 135.
"We are subsequently of no motivation to arrange a rerun. We accordingly dismiss the petition," Chief Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah said in the judgment.
Mr Boadu said Mr Mahama was simply compelled to go to court since he knew without any preparation that he had lost the decisions.
"We are glad that they picked the choice of looking for change in court since that unmistakably drawn out the deception and naughtiness that they need to plant among their supporters."
He said from the three witnesses – Johnson Asiedu Nketia, Dr Michael Kpessah-Whyte and Robert Joseph Mettle-Nunoo – it was the first witness who made the easier.
"For the purported star witness, he truly put forth our case for us in light of the fact that through the rounds of questioning, he acknowledged that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo whether Techiman South votes were given to them or the legitimate votes gotten by every up-and-comer were effectively given to them, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo got not just more than 50% [but] got 51% in addition to of the races.
"As far as we might be concerned, it is a vindication of the certainty that individuals of this nation rest indeed in the New Patriotic Party." he added.
