Election Petition: Mahama files affidavits

President John Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have filed their affidavits at the Supreme Court required for the hearing of the petition on April 16 to proceed.

The filing comes days after he was served with the affidavits from the three petitioners; The New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo (1st petitioner), his running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia (2nd petitioner) and the party Chairman, Jake Otanka Obetsebi-Lamptey (3rd petitioner), challenging the validity of the Electoral Commission’s (EC) declaration of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate as President in the December 2012 general elections.

Citi News can report that the affidavits of President John Mahama and the NDC were packed into six pick-up trucks and conveyed to the registry of the supreme court.
