A leading member of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Mr. Gabby Aware Otchere Darko has revealed that lead Counsel for the petitioner Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata will not be allowed to do his own thing in the election petition case.
According to Mr. Gabby Asare Otchere Darko, the petitioner should forget his hopes that the Electoral Commissioner will mount the witness box to testify in the ongoing election Petition case.
He took to his official Facebook page to share a write-up that seeks to run down the case brought before the Supreme Court by former President John Dramani Mahama.
He notes that Tsatsu Tsikata had the guts to tell the Supreme Court Judges that questions about figures in the case are completely irrelevant.
He adds that Tsatsu Tsikata can’t have such thinking, and still pray the court to compel the Electoral Commissioner to testify.
He notes that the witness box is not a theater stage where anyone else can get there and perform without restrictions.
"Tsatsu Tsikata has told the Supreme Court that questions about figures in the Election Petition case are completely irrelevant. Then he thinks the Electoral Commissioner (Jean Mensah) has a case to answer and for that, she should mount the witness box. Tsatsu Tsikata wants to do his thing, but that will not happen. The witness box in a courtroom is not like a theater stage. It is a court of law, evidence, and fact. This is basic". He narrated.
Mr. Gabby Asare Otchere Darko added that the petitioner has since the commencement of the case refused to present any contrary figures to contest what the Electoral Commissioner declared.
He adds that the petitioner has so far not been able to prove that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo did not secure 50 percent of the votes cast.
"Unfortunately, John Mahama has refused to present any alternative figures to those declared by Jean Mensah. He has refused to also prove that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo did not cross the 50 percent threshold". Mr. Gabby Asare Otchere Darko wrote on his Facebook wall.
He adds that the exchanges that ensued between Justice Appau, Asiedu Nketsia, and Tsatsu Tsikata explain the oddity of the election petition case.
He says that banter has exposed the petitioner. He says it is now difficult for Ghanaians to know if what he presented is even an Election Petition case.
