Election Petition: It’s Too Late For Mahama To Discontinue Case – Lawyer Ampaw

Published

on


Private legal practitioner, Maurice Ampaw has said that calls for the petitioner, John Dramani Mahama to withdraw his case in the ongoing election petition cannot be heeded to because it is too late.

This comes after some persons in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) urged Mr Mahama to withdraw his case with Member of Parliament for the South Dayi, Rockson-Nelson Este Kwami Dafeamekpor suggesting that the way Justices at the Supreme Court keep throwing out motions filed by the Counsels for the Petitioner, it clearly shows that the opposition party is endangered and that “justice emanates from the people” as espoused in the Constitution no longer holds.

Reacting to this, Lawyer Ampaw told Ghanaweb: “When you go to the battlefield and you realize that the law is not on your side, the evidence does not favor you, what do you do? You can throw in the towel but where we’ve gotten to, if you throw in the towel, the court will go ahead because you can’t just discontinue. You must state reasons for which you want to discontinue and the court can refuse because where we’ve gotten to, they are about to pass judgment and so what are you running away from?” 

“Even if they go to file to discontinue, we have passed that stage. You have led evidence, you have closed your case, the respondents have also interrogated you and now, there is time for addresses and then judgment. So, it’s too late in the day for you to say that you are withdrawing,” he stated.

President Akufo-Addo will tonight address the nation for the 24th time on the novel coronavirus pandemic as the country’s cases surge.

He is expected to give updates on the Covid-19 vaccine rollout plan which is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 for selected segments of the population.

The Information Minister-designate has noted that government officials will publicly take doses of the Covid-19 vaccines before the mass vaccination exercise.

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah explained that this is to help demystify the public apprehension about the vaccines.

According to the Ghana Health Service (GHS) the vaccines will first be administered to health care workers, frontline security personnel, persons with known underlying medical conditions, 60 plus older persons and frontline members of the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary.

Government has given assurances that the procured Covid-19 vaccines has an impressive efficacy rate and is completely protective against severe cases of the virus in the country.

Meanwhile, Ghana’s Covid-19 cases have been on the rise.

Ibrahim Mahama Has Not Forgiven Owusu Bempah, Ignore Reports – Aide

Published

on


Rafik Mahama, an aide to Ibrahim Mahama, the Chief Executive Officer of Engineers and Planners Company Limited, has rebuffed media reports that Ernest Owusu Bempah, the embattled spokesperson for Ghana Gas has been pardoned.

“Kindly disregard the story that went viral today with the headline: “Ibrahim Mahama invites ‘brother’ Owusu Bempah home for tea, pardons payment of GH¢203,000”, Rafik Mahama stated in a social media post sighted by GhanaWeb. “There’s no such invitation extended to Owusu Bempah after the apology was issued. An amount of GHC 107,000 has been paid so far with GHC203,000 outstanding”.

He added: “Mr. Ibrahim Mahama received an official apology from Owusu Bempah and apart from that, no further decision has been taken with regards to the apology from Owusu Bempah and the outstanding amount of GHC 203,000.”

An Accra High Court last month ordered Ernest Owusu Bempah, the spokesperson for Ghana Gas to pay Ibrahim Mahama for defamation.

Owusu Bempah as per reports has been struggling to raise the said amount to settle his debt.

On Saturday, February 27, false reports emerged on social media that Ibrahim Mahama had forgiven Owusu Bempah.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has broken his silence on the raging issue of same-sex relations, declaring that his administration will never legalize same-sex marriage in the country.
