Ghana’s Supreme Court on Thursday upheld President Nana Akufo-addo’s victory in the disputed December 7 elections.

The Court dismissed the petition filed by opposition leader, former President John Mahama, who claimed the polls were marred by massive fraud.

The Court ruled that Mahama failed to prove that the alleged irregularities altered the poll results.

At least five people were killed in violence during the polls, the third time both men fought for the presidency. Mahama was victorious in 2012, but lost in 2016 and 2020.

Akufo-addo, 76, is the current Chair of the Authority of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government, a regional economic bloc facing myriad challenges including bad governance, insecurity, corruption and mismanagement, compounded by the coronavirus pandemic.
