Election 2020 Petition: God Is Exposing JM, NDC – Lawyer

Member of the legal team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Fatimatu Abubakar, says she believes that, the errors committed by lawyers of John Dramani Mahama in their petition to the Supreme Court over the outcome of the 2020 Presidential election is the handy work of God.

Speaking on Net2 TV, monitored byTalksghana.com, the lawyer said, God is hinting the NDC and its flagbearer that, mistakes are part of the process and that the error made by the Electoral Commission (EC) in its declaration does not amount to a “subversion of the will of Ghanaians” as the NDC claims.

She further explained that, the petition he (John Mahama) sent to the court had mistakes so he prayed the court to allow him correct them.

Adding, their request was granted by the Supreme Court despite objections from the EC and President Akufo-Addo’s lawyers to that end even the application for amendment had errors.

To her she think God’s exposing them. “You are accusing the EC of making errors meanwhile in your petition, there are errors”

John Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic says it was illegal for the EC to declare Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the winner of the December election so he has gone to the court seeking reversal of same.

During the court’s first sitting, Mahama’s plea for amendment to his petition was granted by the Court.

At the second sitting, a motion filed by his lawyers to interrogate the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission was flatly rejected by the seven-member panel.

The third sitting was on Wednesday, January 2021 where the court announced the roadmap for adjudication of the case.

Mahama’s lawyers protested that the period given for the filing of witness statements was short but the court thought otherwise.
