Akufo-Addo, Bawumia celebrate their victory over Mahama in the Election Petition

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr Mahammudu Bawumia are celebrating the 2020 election win once again after the Supreme Court ruled the election petition in their favour.

A seven-member panel of Supreme Court Judges in a unanimous decision dismissed the election petition filed by the 2020 NDC Presidential Candidate, John Dramani Mahama.

This, according to the apex court, is because the case before it has no merit thus it will not order a re-run of the election as the petitioner sought.

In a video posted by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia were seated in the former’s office keenly paying attention to the court proceedings.

The two state men shared a laugh and continued to watch the happenings in the court.

Former President John Dramani Mahama who lost the 2020 polls took the Electoral Commission to court, challenging the validity of results and the declaration of President Akufo-Addo as the winner.

But reading the ruling of the court on Thursday, March 4, 2021, Chief Justice Anin Yeboah said the petitioner did not satisfy all the five issues outlined by the court to determine the case, hence dismissed it.
