Accept outcome of the Election Petition— Atuguba advises aggrieved parties

A retired Justice of the Supreme Court, William Atuguba, has charged the  citizenry to embrace the outcome of the 2020 Presidential election petition in good faith.

He said in the event that a section of the people were aggrieved by the verdict of the apex court, their actions must be within the confines of the law.

In an interview with the media in Accra, Justice Atuguba indicated that “Court decisions on matters of this kind have various impacts and effects, depending on the circumstances in each country. What I will say is that even if anybody is aggrieved with the ruling, their reactions should be within the framework of the rule of law.”

Asked about the call for the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs Jean Mensa, to mount the witness box, Justice Atuguba, who was the president of the panel of the Supreme Court that adjudicated the  2012 presidential election petition, said the court had the necessary wisdom in dealing with such matters.

On that score, he asked that people avoid directing the court on how to handle the issue, noting that such actions could lead to contempt.

“The Supreme Court judges, including the Chief Justice, have been vetted and approved by Parliament, who are the representatives of the people, so it is important for all actors, particularly the lawyers and the adjudicators, to bear in mind at all times that the decision of the court involves the sovereign welfare of the people of Ghana,” he said.
