The Supreme Court has granted John Dramani Mahama’s request to have the 2020 election petition telecast live on national television
The former president’s request was granted on Thursday, January 14, 2021.
This is believed to be in the interest of fairness as was done during then-candidate Akufo-Addo’s 2012 election petition.
Akufo-Addo was sworn in as president on Thursday, January 7, 2021. Heads of state from across Africa and dignitaries watch him took the oath of office at a ceremony in Accra.
