Lawyers of President Akufo Addo have prepared a response to the amended election petition of the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama.
Speaking to Citi news, Henry Nana Boakye, spokesperson for the President’s legal team said the response is in line with a directive by the Supreme Court.
“By the natural sequence of events, once the petitioner has sought the audience of the court to make some amendments in their petition, it is only proper that the respondent also does the same by today. The Supreme Court gave an order that if you have any response to the amended petition, you should file it today.”
He further indicated that the legal team will insist on its preliminary objection for the case to be dismissed.
“They do not have to waste the court’s time on these issues because the facts they have presented do not support their case.”
