Supreme Court Upholds Nana Addo’s Re-election
The Supreme Court of Ghana has upheld the re-election of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as president of the republic of Ghana.
The decision means he was legitimately elected during the December 7, 2020, presidential elections.
The verdict was read out today by Chief Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, who led the seven-member panel, that has been sitting on the 2020 Election Petition, since the hearing began on January 14, 2021.
“The petition is dismissed as it is with no merit,” the Chief Justice said after reading the judgement.
The court held that, the petitioner failed to conclusively prove any of the issues that it had filed for determination.
