He, therefore, urged the apex court to among other reliefs declare the declaration by the EC that the New Patriotic Party’s Nana Akuffo-Addo as the winner null and void.

However, after weeks of long legal arguments by all parties to the petition which included Mr. Mahama as the petitioner, and the EC, the first respondent as well as President Akufo-Addo as the second respondent, the Supreme Court upheld the EC’s declaration of Akufo-Addo as having been legitimately elected.

At the premises of the court where all parties normally addressed the media on the proceedings, the petitioners decided to deviate from the trend, saying Mr. Mahama himself would address the press later in the evening.

His legal team urged the press to converge on the former President’s office at 5 pm, to carry his address to the rest of the Ghanaian populace.
