Set aside error-ridden, unconstitutional declaration – Asiedu Nketia


The General Secretary of the NDC has urged the Supreme Court to set aside the declaration that brought the president into office.

In his witness statement before the apex court on Wednesday, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia characterised the said declaration by the Electoral Commissioner as error-ridden and unconstitutional.

‘It is clearly necessary for this court to set aside the error-ridden and unconstitutional declaration made on 9th December 2020 by the Chairperson of 1st Respondent and the Returning Officer for the Presidential Election, Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa,” portions of his statement read.

The Former Deputy Agriculture Minister is one of the witnesses testifying in favour of Mr John Dramani Mahama in his 2020 Election Petition.

The former president has petitioned the court to set aside the declared results and order a rerun of the polls between himself and his predecessor.
