Opinion;Tsatsu Should Forget About the Supereme Court and go to Antoa.

The Supreme Court has dismissed a review application by Former President John Dramani Mahama challenging the court's decision not to compel the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC). Mrs. Jean Adukwei Mensa. 

In yesterday's ruling, a nine-member review panel of the supreme court held that lawyers for Mr. Mahama failed to meet the criteria for review as stipulated by law. 

This happens to be the second time the Apex court of the land has dismissed an application to coerce the EC boss to testify. It serves as a big blow to the case of the petitioners.

According to the court, the petitioner did not raise any new points, neither did he introduce any peculiar circumstance for which the court should review its ruling on the 11th of February,2021. 

Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata has submitted a third application. Something I deem as a waste of time and effort. Many are divided on the issue of committing the EC chairperson to testify.

Some say she shouldn't for who alleges must prove and it shouldn't be the job of the first respondent to do that. Others are of the view that she should mount the witness box if she doesn't have anything to hide.

Should the EC boss Testify?

Well, I agree and disagree with that assertion. I believe that the Lawyer of the petitioner should have based solely on their evidence to prove that none of the presidential candidates for the 2020 elections attained the 50 plus one vote mark.

So far there has been little to no evidence displayed by the petitioner's counsel that in any way suggest that, indeed the election needed a rerun.

Be that as it may, I also see no reason why Madam Jean Adukwei Mensah should strongly refuse to testify. If you believe in the work you have done then you should even rejoice for been thrown such a mammoth opportunity to clear all doubts cast around the figures you announced which is being challenged in court. She should stop hiding behind the Laws and just testify.

The rollercoaster ride Tsatsu is having with the court is not going to end anytime soon. I trust that he is set to push the law to its limits. However, I think it's an exercise in futility since it's been made abundantly clear that the judges are not ready to eat back their words.

Why Antoa Should be the next step...

I am a Ghanaian who believes in the traditions of the Land. Although born and raised a Christian I have seen many conflicts, afflictions, litigations, and crimes get punished or settled through traditional means. Even some Christians call on their hometown deity, to come to their rescue when all options get exhausted. This sentiment was shared by the Late President JJ Rawlings.

Given this, the clear solution to this impasse is to commit Jean Mensah to antoa since they are likely to be disappointed by the court again.

This is my opinion. Do you agree or you share a different view?
