On Monday, February 8, lawyers of the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo – the 1st and 2d respondents respectively – closed their instances via electing now not to present their witnesses for pass-exam.

Mr Tsikata, in arguing his case, had said Mrs Mensa couldn't skip pass-examination.

“It is our respectful submission that by means of submitting its witness declaration, the First Respondent has clearly crossed the bridge as some distance as establishing the witness up for cross-exam is concerned. That bridge has been crossed, the ship has already been sailed.”
