Chairperson of the electoral commission Jean Mensa has expressed gratitude to Ghanaians for supporting her delivery of free, fair, and credible elections in 2020.
The EC Chairperson, Jean Mensa declared President Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 presidential election.
Per her December 9, 2020, declaration, His excellency Nana Akuffo Addo defeated former President John Dramani Mahama by securing 51.302% against latter’s 47.359% of valid votes cast.
Nonetheless, Mahama dismissed the result of the political decision and appealed to the Supreme Court, imploring it to revoke the outcomes announced by the executive of the EC. He contended that there was no champ in the political race and that a rerun should be requested among him and the president.
Following 17 days of sittings including five days of pre-preliminary, the Supreme Court on Day 18 of the consultation excused the appeal saying it was meritless.
The seven-part board that heard the request said it can’t organization a rerun of the 2020 official surveys in light of the fact that the solicitor neglected to cite “pertinent proof” to back his cases that there was no champ in the December 7, 2020, official races.
In a tweet seen by bawkuonline.com, the EC Chairperson wrote: “I do thank you for following me. With your support, together we can ensure that every election process is Free, Fair, Transparent, Peaceful, and Credible. Thank you once again and may God bless our homeland, Ghana, and make our nation great and strong.“
