Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has adjourned its hearing of the 2020 Election Petition to Tuesday, January 26, 2021.

The petitioner in the 2020 Presidential Election Petition, John Dramani Mahama, has sought a review of a ruling on some 12 questions he wanted the 1st Respondent, Electoral Commission to answer after the court had earlier dismissed a similar application.

Lawyer for the petitioner on Wednesday, January 20 told the court at the beginning of hearing that he has come to seek a review of the ruling on their application for interrogatories the previous day.

The court ruled that “the crucial issue of relevancy has not been established in this Application” emphasizing the various amendments that have been made to the Court Procedures and Rules, the latest being C.I 99.

“We are strictly bound by C.I 99 and therefore will not apply Order 22 of C.I 47 OF 2004 in this circumstance.

“We accordingly refuse to grant the application and same is accordingly dismissed”, the court ruled.

According to the aggrieved residents, it’s better to have a timetable for the power rationing if ‘dumsor’ is back.

Many communities across the Ashanti Region with Kumasi as it’s capital have been facing unannounced interruption of their power supply.

This has led to several complaints against Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), who have in turn blamed Gridco for the situation.

“This is the same way dumsor started in Mahama’s administration so I’m convinced dumsor is back,” an angry tailor in Kumasi told Utimate FM.

“All that I need now is a time table so I can plan my life. I’m tired of ECG’s lies and blame game on Gridco.”

Meanwhile, other residents in Kumasi have also called for a load-shedding so that they can plan ahead.
