The Supreme Court of Ghana on Thursday unanimously dismissed the election 2020 petition before it by former president John Dramani Mahama, affirming President Akufo-Addo validly won the elections.

Mahama was at the apex court to pray for a rerun of the polls, arguing none of the candidates who contested the election obtained more than 50% of the votes cast.

Mahama alleged that the second respondent, President Akufo-Addo won the election through vote padding.

He also claimed the candidate benefitted from arithmetic and computational errors. He concludes that the EC’s declaration of President Akufo-Addo is unconstitutional since he did not obtain more than 50% of the votes cast.

On Thursday, the court concluded that Mahama failed to adduce evidence to his claims and therefore the case has been dismissed because it was without merit.
