The judgment is coming after five days of pre-trial and 12 days hearing, 17 days of sittings in all.
Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) petitioned the Supreme Court to order a second round of the December 7, 2020, presidential elections.
He said the votes obtained by New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) candidate, President Nana Akufo-Addo, and himself in the election as declared by the Electoral Commission (EC) Chair were not enough for a candidate to be declared the winner.
According to his lawyers, they had proven successfully without equivocation that there was no winner in the 2020 presidential elections.
That notwithstanding, Mahama is said to be “worried” ahead of the judgment.
A spokesperson for his legal team, Sammy Gyamfi believes the former president was not treated fairly during the trial.
“…We think that the petitioner is being denied a fair hearing and it is important to pursue these issues to the logical conclusions,” he stated on Monday, February 22, 2021.
