Ghana’s supreme court on Thursday dismissed the suit by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the country’s main opposition party, challenging the presidential elections.


President Nana Akufo-Addo was declared the winner of the December 7 presidential election.

 

Mahama, who was dissatisfied with the conduct of the election, had accused Akufo-Addo of using the military to intimidate voters and overturn the polls in his favour.

 

The opposition subsequently headed to court, demanding a rerun of the election.


Ruling on the case on Thursday, Kwesi Anin Yeboah, chief justice of Ghana, said the petition lacks merit, upholding Akufo-Addo’s victory at the polls.

 

“(The) allegation of vote padding was not proved by credible evidence… we have therefore no reason to order for a rerun,” Kwesi Anin Yeboah said.

 

“We accordingly dismiss the petition as having no merit.”
