Mahama’s Petition Is Frivolous, Dismiss It – Akufo-Addo Urges The Supreme Court In His Closing Address

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has described the 2020 presidential election petition as frivolous, and has subsequently urged the Supreme Court to dismiss it.

 

In their closing address, his lawyers argued that the petition, filed by former President John Dramani Mahama, discloses no cause of action because it does not meet the criteria for a presidential election petition as stipulated in Article 64(1) of the 1992 Constitution.

The closing address was signed by Mr Akoto Ampaw, lead counsel for President Akufo-Addo (second respondent).
