Do not do that in Court again - Kelvin Taylor boldly tells Tsatsu Tsikata

Ghanaian based American investigative Journalist and self acclaimed youth activist and anti-corruption campaigner, Kelvin Ekow Taylor has made a bold statement concerning the ongoing election petition hearing brought before the Supreme Court by the leader of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama. In what he described as a disappointment, he expressed worry over the conduct of some Supreme Court judges who tend to interrupt Tsatsu Tsikata in his submissions.

According to the dissident broadcaster, Tsatsu Tsikata's extensive experience in law gives him confidence in the case. He showered praises on the Lawyer and his legal team while encouraging him to pursue and get the will of the people protected. Reacting to the attempt by Jean Mensah to escape grilling, he called on Ghanaians to mount a strong opposition to the development and compel her to testify.

This comment follows after the Court postponed the final ruling to Thursday, February 11, 2021. Undoubtedly, Ghanaians saw longstanding legal tussle between the Lawyers of the Petitioner and the Respondents. One of the issues that took centre during the sitting was the debate that could get the Chairperson of the 1st Respondent, Madam Jean Mensa to mount the witness box to be interrogated by Tsatsu Tsikata or otherwise.

As contentious as it was, each of the laywers put in their best to impress the Panel. However, the Lead Counsel for the Petitioner, Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata seemed to have outwitted his colleagues to get the ruling postponed to different day. Tsatsu Tsikata cited several precedent cases and constitutional provisions to 'battle' some of the Judges over their comments during the hearing.

Kelvin Taylor speaking on his televised With All Due Respect Show last night, sent a strong message to Tsatsu Tsikata. According to him;

"We all want to get that satisfaction that we have gotten somewhere that ws can move on as a nation. That is all. Ask yourself, who doesn't want to get to the bottom of this? Who doesn't want to see the final Judgement? What is happening has halted this country in many ways."

"Today, we see a Judge contradicting himself and being schooled by a lawyer in our Court. I tell Tsatsu Tsikata not to teach them again. Never do that in Court again, Mr. Tsatsu. I don't have to repeat all the grammar and things that Tsatsu Tsikata said in court. We are seeing all these because someone failed to do job well."
