Election Petition 2020: Justice Atuguba urges NDC to admit Supreme Court’s final judgement

A retired Supreme Court Justice, William Atuguba has urged lawyers for the petitioner, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to admit the final judgment which will be delivered by Justices of the Apex court of the land on the 2020 presidential election petition.

His call comes at a time where, the Supreme Court speaking through the Chief Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, has unanimously dismissed the petitioner’s application for review of the ruling of Apex Court’s on the reopening of its case.

According to Justice William Atuguba, Ghana’s maturity in the matters of democratic governance and the rule of law will be determined following the handing over of Supreme Court’s judgment to Lawyers for the petitioner.

Weeks ago the former Supreme Court Justice advised parties in the 2020 election petition to treat the interest of the populace paramount in all their doing-especially following the pronouncement of final judgment on the case.

The Justice who was part of the Judges who sat on the 2012 presidential Election petition also said that if the move is adhered to, mayhem will not occur.

A number of applications filed by the petitioner were laid off since the Supreme Court of the land started hearing the 2020 presidential election petition.

Among others one can cite, application to have the Chairperson of the first respondent answer some twelve interrogatories, the application to compel the Chairperson of the first respondent to adduce evidence by mounting the Witness box and the application to reopen its case.
