The Leader and Founder of Alive Chapel International, Bishop Dr Elisha Salifu Amoako is showering praises on the seven Supreme Court Judges for pronouncing a good judgment on the 2020 election petition.
According to him, the Supreme Court judges deserve to be applauded for passing an unquestionable judgement based on the evidence available to them.
Speaking to the media after the Supreme Court final ruling on the 2020 election petition, Bishop Dr Salifu Amoako said that the seven Justices of the Supreme Court have demonstrated that they are experienced and capable of maintaining the peace the country is enjoying.
He added that the seven Justices of the Supreme Court have done well in the meticulous attention they attached to the 2020 election petition and coming out with a judgment that meets the expectation of about 70 per cent of Ghanaians.
He affirmed the decision of the seven Supreme Court judges to describe the petition of former President John Dramani Mahama as one without merit because the petitioner failed to provide evidence to convince the Justices of the Supreme Court.
He was of the considered view that the petitioner may have a case to pursue in the Supreme Court but due to lack of evidence which is the accepted norm in the court of law, the petition can be dismissed as witnessed last Thursday, 4th March 2021.
“We will thank the judges for doing a good job; the time they spent for three months on the petition…the way they handled the case, they did well because such a case is very sensitive to the extent that if you don’t handle it well, the nation can be inflamed”, he applauded.
“I am happy with the way the judges handled the 2020 election petition and the outcome of the case. The judges said that the NDC’s case is not all that strong as well as the evidence; based on that, they dismissed the case. I think that if you had followed the case attentively, the judgment is fair; they did the right thing. The judgment went well”, he opined.
He added that even the star witness for the petitioner, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia in the witness box in his calculation affirmed that his Presidential Candidate, Mr John Mahama did not cross the threshold required to win the 2020 Presidential Election and in the same calculation, rather affirmed that Mr Akufo-Addo won the 2020 election.
