The grounds are still not quiet, succeeding last year’s election in Ghana. After the result was declared by the electoral commission of Ghana in favour of the incumbent President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The strong opposition party National Democratic Congress (NDC) alleged that the Electoral Commission conducted flawed elections and refused to accept the outcome of the presidential election.
After a succession of protests and press conferences against the electoral commission on fraud election, they finally filed a petition to the Supreme Court demanding a run-off on the election and inquiry of the actions of the first plaintiff.
To be faithful with you, another case sent to the court by the National democratic congress was Techiman south and Hohoe parliamentary election. They demanded an injunction on MP-elect in the Hohoe constituency Peter Amewu because the residents in Santrokofi, Akpafu, Likpe, and Lolobi (SALL) were disenfranchised from taking part in the parliamentary election.
The lawyer for the residents (SALL) Tsatsu Tsikata during the court ruling did all that he could do to avoid the swearing-in of Peter Amewu and the residents could have their right to vote in the Hohoe constituency. It was sad after the case was boycotted by the supreme court and said it was not related to any human rights infringement.
Following the court ruling the lawyer has reacted to an interview he had with Peace FM morning news, he revealed, he is very disappointed in the supreme court.
The Supreme court is set to unravel the dispute between people, companies, and the government but now the court is rather overstepping the right of the citizens, which is very bad and now he thinks how the future of the supreme court will be? Is it going to be partisan judgment for the government in power or a court of justice?
This is unacceptable the government should see to it. If truly he wants peace to forever remain in this country.
