Supreme Court set March 4 to give judgement on Mahama’s Election Petition
The Supreme Court of Ghana has set Thursday, March 4, to give its judgments in the 2020 Election Petition brought before it by the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 general elections, John Dramani Mahama.
Mr Mahama was praying the court to declare as null and void the Presidential election results declared in favour of the President and 2nd Respondent in the case, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo by the Electoral Commissioner, Jean Mensa.
He was also among other things seeking the Court to compel the Electoral Commission, the 1st Respondent in the case to re – run the Presidential elections between himself and the 2nd respondent since their data suggest none of them was able to secure the constitutional 50% + 1 to be declared President.
The dead goat syndrome
The dead goat, however was first mentioned by the former President, John Dramani Mahama and the petitioner in the 2020 elections who once said that “I have a dead goat syndrome”.
Mr Mahama made the comment while speaking to members of the Ghanaian community in Botswana in the year 2015 in his capacity then as the President of the country.
He was speaking about strike actions by government workers and how he will not be shaken by the action.
“I have seen more demonstrations and strikes in my first two years. I don’t think it can get worse. It is said that when you kill a goat and you frighten it with a knife, it doesn’t fear the knife because it is dead already,” he said.
