Nana-Akufo-AddoThe National Executive Committee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has set up a committee to assess the ruling of the Supreme Court which dismissed a petition that sought to challenge the declaration of John Mahama as winner of the 2012 presidential election.

The party took the decision after a NEC meeting Friday, a day after the Supreme Court ruling.

Though the party’s 2012 flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo has indicated he will not seek a review of the judges’ decision, the executive committee of the party has tasked the team to study the reasons for the rejection of their petition.

Although it is not yet known the composition of the committee, Ashainti Ashanti Regional Chairman, Frederick Fredua Anto told Joy News, the committee will also advise the party on the way forward.

The Supreme Court in a unanimous decision on Thursday, dismissed the case of the petitioners and upheld the declaration of president John Mahama by the Electoral Commission.

In a related development, Chief Executive Officer of construction firm, EUROGET Dr. Said Deraz, has congratulated Ghanaians for the maturity they showed during last Thursday’s ruling.

Dr. Deraz in a statement said the maturity and tolerance exhibited by Ghanaians ‘are worth emulating by neigbours in the sub region and the entire continent of Africa”.

‘Ghana’s experience has charted an exemplary path for the continent and all of you will never be forgotten for recording this remarkable space in the political annals of the continent,’ the statement said.
