Akufo-Addo Declared A Winner Again By The Supreme Court

Published

on

The Supreme Court of Ghana has upheld the re-election of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as president of Ghana.

The decision means he was validly 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 CJ 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.

The issued for determination were as follows:

  1. Whether or not the petition discloses any reasonable cause of action
  2. Whether or not based on the data contained in the declaration of the 1st Respondent (EC), no candidate obtained more than 50% of the valid votes cast as required by Article 63 (3) of the 1992 constitution
  3. Whether or not the 2nd Respondent still met article 63 (3) of the 1992 constitution threshold by the exclusion or inclusion of the Techiman South constituency Presidential Election Results of 2020
  4. Whether or not the declaration by the 1st Respondent dated the 9th of December was in violation of Article 63 (3) of the 1992 constitution
  5. Whether or not the alleged vote padding and other errors complained of by the petitioner affected the outcome of the Presidential Election results of 2020.

The Petition was lodged at the apex court by former president John Dramani Mahama, who was flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC. Mahama was challenging the EC’s December 9 declaration of Akufo-Addo as president-elect.

Mahama dragged two parties to the top court. They were: the Electoral Commission and President Akufo-Addo as first and second respondents respectively

Are GAYS and LESBIANS Sponsoring The Building Of The National Cathedral?

Are GAYS and LESBIANS Sponsoring For The Building Of The National Cathedral?

Architect of the National Cathedral of Ghana which is a planned interdenominational Christian cathedral being built in Accra, Sir David Adjaye has declared support for LGBTQ rights in Ghana, urging President Akufo-Addo to do all he can to make it legal, MyNewsGh.com has filed.

While many people might have declared support for gay rights without a fuss, that of David Adjaye will stir controversy with Ghanaians as President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had said during the laying of the foundation stone for the national cathedral that it is a holy promise to God and being built to honour God.

The president was joined by leadership of major Christian congregations, government officials, traditional authorities and citizens majority of whom are opposed to gay rights.

Indeed, a key talking point about the event was the importation of a stone from Jerusalem which the president dropped into the first digging at the site.

The “holy stone” will symbolize the sacredness of the land earmarked for the project as Christians regard Jerusalem to be the most sacred site in the world.

The celebrated architect whose design for the cathedral was unveiled by President Nana Akufo-Addo in March 2018 joined a list of top United Kingdom Celebrities piling pressure on President Akufo-Addo to legalize homosexuality in Ghana.

Many Ghanaians will be shocked by the irony of the demand as the architect of the National Cathedral of Jesus Christ is now openly advocating for Gay Rights while they (the larger Ghanaian population) are also presumably opposed to gay rights in the name of God and religion.

In the letter sighted by MyNewsGh.com signed by among others David Adjaye and addressed to the Ghanaian government and the gay community in Ghana to encourage them and to solidarize with them, Sir David Adjaye along with other UK “Ghanaians”, said:

“We have watched with profound concern as you (gays) have had to question the safety of your vital work at the LGBT+ Rights Ghana Centre in Accra, and feared for your personal wellbeing and security. It is unacceptable to us that you feel unsafe,” the letter addressed to Ghana’s LGBT community said.

 

 

The group called Akufo-Addo and the government to ensure gay rights are respected and any and all forms of attacks on gays are ceased.

 

“As prominent and powerful advocates for this great country, we are beseeching His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and political/cultural leaders to create a pathway for allyship, protection and support. We petition for inclusivity which will make the nation even greater and even stronger,” the UK celebrities wrote.
