The Journalist who has been tagged as an outspoken Journalist has angrily reacted to the conduct of some members of the Respondent's and Petitioner's legal team.
In what he described as a disappointment, he called on the Supreme Court to caution Spokespersons of the factions against holding press conferences after hearing. According to Kwesi Pratt, his exclusive observation revealed that the object behind the press briefings is to confuse the general public. He has called on the SC to register their displeasure over the conduct as it may affect the Court's proceedings.
Speaking in an interview today February 6, 2021 on Alhaji and Alhaji show hosted by Sena Nombo, he registered his displeasure over the conduct while chastising the Court for overlooking the 'terrible' development.
He said; "I have often been disappointed by the after court commentary by Lawyers. I am very disappointed and you must stop them all. And it seems to me that the object behind the commentary is to confuse the general public and to engage in useless propaganda to the extent that when judgement is given you'll be expecting some reactions. I am surprised that it is Lawyers who fo this and the Supreme Court has not taken note of what these lawyers do."
