First and Third Respondents in the just ended election petition, President John Dramani Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) feel vindicated by the Supreme Court's declaration that President John Dramani Mahama was ‘validly elected’.
Beaming with smiles and speaking on their behalf, Nana Ato Dadzie, a member of the legal team of the (NDC) said: “we must thank God for where we have come as a nation. We have been vindicated”.
Nana Ato Dadzie urged supporters of the NDC to jubilate but “do it cautiously; not teasing anyone…they are entitled to jubilate…”
He, however, congratulated his “colleagues in the NPP for fighting a good fight” adding that “there will be another election and they can try their chance in the other elections…”
“We also appreciate the judges for their consistency throughout the long proceedings. I expect that everybody will now put their shoulders to the wheel. The rest of African and the world will see how far we have come with our democracy,” he added.
