Nii Ayikoi Otoo, a former Attorney General has asked NDC’s John Dramani Mahama not to blame his defeat in the court case on the EC (Electoral Commission chair Jean Mensa’s refusal to testify.
According to him, nobody should blame the EC boss for not mounting the box to testify saying that Mahama had a bad case. “the burden of proof was on the petitioner and not the respondents” he said.
Nii Yikoi Otoo said this on Saturday, March 5, 2021 on TV3’s KEY POINTS show hosted by Abena Tabi.
Supreme Court on Thursday, March 4, dismissed John Dramani Mahama’s case to court saying he did not produced enough evidence.
Former President John Mahama who re-contested the election on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), took the Electoral Commission to court, challenging the validity of the Commission’s 9th December 2020 declaration of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as winner of the poll.
Mr. Mahama also contended in his petition that, President Akufo-Addo did not meet the constitutional threshold for election to the high office of the president yet was so declared.
He has been praying the court in the last two months, albeit amidst strong opposition from lawyers for President Akufo-Addo and the Electoral Commission, to nullify the declaration and to cause a re-run between him and President Akufo-Addo.
