Speaking to journalists after the Supreme Court hearing of the ongoing election petition, Dr.Ayine who is part of Mr. Mahama 's legal team ,clarified;

"The reason we are insisting that she be allowed to testify is simply because this is not a debt collection case".

"We are here dealing with article 1 of the Constitution,which states that the sovereignty of Ghana resides in the people of Ghana in whose name and for whose welfare the powers of government must be undertaken",he simplified.

"And so for Mrs. Jean Mensa to have declared that the sovereign will of the country,as manifested on December 7 2020, elected Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo as President of the Republic of Ghana,she has a constitutional responsibility to account to the people of the country as to how she came about at that finalization and that constitutional responsibility means that she cannot,under any situation,be permitted not to account to the citizens through cross-examination because cross-examination is one of the process allowed by law for demanding accountability of petitioners and this is not an ordinary petitioner; this is a constitutional officeholder and so our case is very different from some of the English cases that were being cited", he added.

However, the court has decided to rule on Thursday, 11 February 2021 about whether or not Mrs Jean Mensa and Mr Mac Manu should stage the platform.
