The Reality Is That Akufo-Addo Is Our President Even Though I Disagree With Supreme Court – Mahama



Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that Akufo-Addo remains the legally recognised president of the country.

Speaking in a meeting with the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs on Tuesday October 12, as part of his thank you tour, Mr Mahama said “Despite the fact that  the elections were not declared  for us , we went to the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court gave it  its ruling  against us and so in my address to the nation  I accepted the  ruling of the court even though  we were not too happy .

“I think that  justice must not only  be done but must be seen to be done  and so the demands  we made  during the court hearing , one, to  let the electoral commission  give access  to information which  was turned down.  

“To ask the electoral commission  some questions that are called interrogatories  such as is done in normal court proceedings  , that was also turned down  and indeed, the most injurious one to our democracy , to let the person  responsible  for elections in this country  that has been constitutionally mandated  stand in the witness box  and testify to the work she did , also turned down.

“And so, we accepted the verdict but we disagreed  with a lot of things that took place  in that court. But in the interest of peace of the country we accept by reason of that court , it means that the recognised  president of the country  is Nana Akufo-Addo  and we all respect him as our president.

“I will continue to say that even though we disagreed with  processes of  the elections, we disagreed with some of the process of the  court hearing , the reality of the fact  is that he is our president.”
