Lawyers for President Akufo-Addo have argued that the election petition filed at the Supreme Court by NDC presidential candidate, John Mahama is full of weak and inconsistent complaints hence must be dismissed.
Responding to the petition, the president argued that Mahama’s petition failed to disclose any attack on the validity of of the election held throughout all the polling station across the country.
Read paragraph 5&6 of the president’s response:
“The election petition does not disclose any attack on the validity of the election held throughout the 38,622 polling stations and 311 special voting centres or any of the processes set out in the paragraphs 3 and 4 (supra)
In point of fact, Petitioner only devotes an overwhelming portion of the petition(30 out of 35 paragraphs) to weak and inconsistent complaints about the “declaration of the winner” of the election by 1st Respondent, and the remaining five(5) paragraphs to empty allegations of “wrong aggregation of votes” and “votes padding,” which collectively involve about 6,622 votes- an amount patently insignificant to materially affect the outcome of an election in which 2nd respondent defeated Petitioner by we’ll over 500,000 votes”
Below is Akufo Addo’s full response:
