This Is Sad: Ghanaians Descend On Mahama's Lawyer For What He Said About The Petition

A member of the communication's team of John Mahama's legal team in the ongoing elections petition at the Supreme Court has landed in trouble in the hands of social media users

Lawyer, Godwin Edudzi Tamakloe was talking about the ongoing elections petition hearing at the Supreme Court. In his opinion, the hearing at the Supreme Court has taught him and his party a great lesson.

Speaking to Okay FM's Kwame Nkrumah Tikese about the elections petition, he said he has learnt that future Elections in Ghana is going to become something else. He said Ghanaians have come to appreciate that when there is any suit at the Supreme Court about elections, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission can even decide not to mount the witness box.

He said the proceedings have shown that no matter how any person wins power in an election, the declaration of the EC Chairperson becomes final. Even if people are killed to win power, he shall not be questioned by anybody.

So, now from what I have seen as a young politician, the lesson I have taken from this proceeding is that it is the end that justifies the means; whatever you have to do to win the elections matters the most. You know 8 persons have died out of the 2020 election; so, all that is needed is even if you have to kill innocent Ghanaians and have the EC Chairperson declare you as President, now that is the acceptable norm, the new normal, so just do it.

“If we decide to go on this path, we will be pressing the self-destruct button and the ultimate loser will be all of us,” he said.

But after the comments from the NDC lawyer, Ghanaians were not happy with him. The following are some of the reactions from Ghanaians on social media.
