Mahama

The Supreme Court will on Thursday January 14, hear a motion of former President John Dramani Mahama, praying for leave to amend the election petition he filed challenging validity of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, as the winner of the December Presidential Election.

The Former President is praying the Court to correct an error or a “mistake” in the election petition.

The mistake, as stated in the motion was in relief (f) of the election petition.

The election petition, filed on December 30, last year, stated the first respondent (1st) as the Electoral Commission (EC), with the second respondent (2nd) as being President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

However, relief (f) prays the Court to order a rerun between Mr Mahama and the first respondent, which, as stated in the petition, turned out to be the EC.

Relief (f) is seeking “an order of mandatory injunction directing the first respondent to proceed to conduct a second election with petitioner and first respondent as the candidates as required under Articles 63(4) and (5) of the 1992 Constitution.”

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
