“The petition is adjourned to March 4, 2021, for judgement,” Anin-Yeboah said.

The petition was filed by the presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama who is challenging the 2020 presidential results delivered by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.
