John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress is being trolled on social media following supposed errors committed by his lawyers in the amendments they made to their initial petition which was filed at the Supreme Court on December 30, 2020.

A request by the team to rectify the errors was granted by the Supreme Court in its first sitting on the case.

But it appears in the bid to correct the mistakes, another batch of errors was committed by Mahama’s legal team.

Portions of the document shared on social media show that in referencing the second respondent which is Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the lawyers mistakenly cited the first respondent which is the Electoral Commission.

“That 1st respondent votes as announced by Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa, the Chairperson of the 1st Respondent, in her declaration of 9th December 2020 – 6,730,413 amount to 49.625% of 13,562,592”.

Also, the removal of the digital address on the petition has sparked fury with some people accusing John Dramani of being ‘petty and emotional’.

John Dramani Mahama, as it is known is praying the court to quash the declaration by Jean Mensa of the Electoral Commission and order a re-run of the post.

Mahama insists that the declaration is an affront to the constitution and that per the figures, it is illegal and erroneous for Akufo-Addo to hold himself as President.
