There seems to be a longstanding tussle between the Supreme Court and some bigwigs of the opposition National Democratic Congress. Recall, the NDC petitioned the Electoral Commission over the final verdict of the 2020 general elections, which saw Akuffo-Addo secure his second term in office.
Information trickling in has it that Chief Justice Annin Yeboah has reported Dr. Dominic Ayine, who serves as a Ranking member of NDC Communications Team to the General Legal Council over statements allegedly made about the elections petition and final ruling of the Supreme Court.
According to the statement, Dr. Ayine's comments are contemptuous which is similar to same statements he made during the hearing of the petition. It seems this development did not go down well with the NDC as an emergency press conference has been held to respond to the petition from the Chief Justice.
Today, June 21 2021, the General Secretary of the NDC, Honourable Johnson Asiedu Nketia has made a bold statement about the referral of Dr. Dominc Ayine to the General Legal Council. In what he described as a disappointment, he stressed that the development is an attempt to undermine the democratic principles of the country.
Speaking further, he boldly indicated that the party finds no fault with the comments made by their member. He said, "He has not made any contemptuous remarks about the ruling. What he said was the real truth and nothing else."
He added, "I am highly disappointed. It seems Ghana is headed for trouble. It is unacceptable. We will continue fighting for the country. We will not also disappoint Dr. Dominic Ayine."
What are your thoughts on his statements?
