Former Mayor of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, Kojo Bonsu has described as needless the decision by his political party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) to go to court over the 2020 general elections.
According to him, the party should have invested its energy in the next elections instead of going to court since President Akufo-Addo was declared winner of the elections by the Electoral Commission.
“It was needless to go to court because the person has been declared winner and sworn in already.
“I personally did not support the idea of going to court but what can I do when the party has taken decision to go court. All I could do was to support the party in that direction but I personally think it was needless,” he stated on Adom FM which was monitored by Today.
Former President John Mahama, challenged the results of the Election 2020 in court after describing the exercise as “fraudulent”.
But in a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court affirmed the flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo as winner because the petition had no merit.
