In the ongoing Supreme Court election petition the lawyer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Tsatsu Tsikata asked the Court to play a video recording of happenings in the EC strong room as it was stated in the witness statement of Rojo Mettle-Nunoo.

In the paragraph 5 of Rojo Mettle-Nunoo witness statement it says that "there was someone who was taking video of what was happening in the strong room and if the court will let that video played then it will confirm my statement"

Lawyer Akoto Ampaw of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) then said to the court to remove that witness statement from the paragraph statement because he sees it as baseless.

Tsatsu Tsikata then objected to the move of lawyer Akoto to dismiss that paragraph statement

Lawyer Tsikata said "all that this witness is seeking is that he want credibility and accountability to his statement and depending on the cross-examination we may indeed file an application that the court should allowed that video evidence played.
