Yesterday, February 15, 2021 was another day in the Supreme Court and the Judges sat to hear the petition filed by Mr. Mahama to challenge the results of the last presidential election held on December 7, 2020. Mr. Mahama, who lost the election and his legal team seems to be in a high spirit as he filed another application for review of the Court's decision on failure of Jean Mensah to mount the witness box.

Tsatsu Tsikata in an attempt to impress the panel argued that, there is sufficient basis for the court to grant permission to subpoena Jean Mensah. According to him, the Electoral Commission is a cooperate body and Jean Mensah is an individual in her discrete capacity as a Chairperson.

Ghanaians saw an unprecedented level of drama as the lawyers for both Respondents joined forces and raised an objection to the application. The Court presided over by the Chief Justice Annin Yeboah adjourned the case to be heard and the ruling on February 16, 2021.

The Member of Parliament for Ofoase Ayirebi constituency and a spokesperson for the 2nd Respondent's legal team, Honourable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah made a bold declaration concerning the argument in Court. According to him, the basis on which the Petitioner seeks to reopen his case is unfounded.

Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM's Ekosiisen show hosted by Osei Bonsu, he jumped to the defense of Akoto Ampaw who cited several precedent cases to dismiss the motion. He asserts that, he is optimistic that the ruling will be positive to the course of the Respondents.

"Mahama cannot insist that he is surprised Jean Mensah is not testifying because we even opposed the petition at the initial stage. You cannot say that; The law doesn't care. We will still continue to object this application. It is clear that, he has no case but just wants to grill Jean Mensah. He wouldn't close his case and later come back."
