It’s Shocking For Sammy Gyamfi Who Always ‘Insults’ Akufo-Addo To Claim KON, Nana B Are Disrespecting Tsatsu – NPP

Published

on


The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has in a statement expressed shock at claims by Sammy Gyamfi, National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), that Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and Henry Nana Boakye are disrespecting Tsatsu Tsikata, legal counsel of the petitioner in the ongoing 2020 polls petition.

According to the NPP, it is utterly shocking for someone like Sammy Gyamfi “who, over the years, have persistently insulted and disrespected President Akufo-Addo – someone whose legal and political achievements, the former may never be able to attain in his entire life – to lament and suggest that the spokespersons of the 2nd Respondent ought to show deference to seniors at the Bar, when, in actual fact, there hasn’t been any act of disrespect on the part of the 2nd Respondent’s team toward the Petitioner’s lawyers or spokespersons”.

Press Release

RE: ATTEMPTS BY KOJO OPPONG NKRUMAH AND HENRY NANA BOAKYE TO INCITE THE SUPREME COURT AGAINST NDC LAWYERS

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has taken notice of a press release from the NDC that seeks to create the false impression that the Supreme Court is being “INCITED” to cite Dr. Dominic Ayine for contempt and also the lead counsel of the petitioner has been subjected to attacks by Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah Esq. and Henry Nana Boakye Esq.

The NPP takes strong exception to the plain lies therein and without a shred of equivocation, state:

1. It is an affront to the apex court of the land for the NDC to suggest that the venerable, experienced and learned Justices of the Supreme Court (SC) who, over time, have demonstrated to be independent and objective, are amenable to “INCITEMENT” by spokespersons of the 2nd Respondent.

2. The claim that Hon. Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah Esq. and Henry Nana Boakye Esq. seek to incite the SC against Dr Dominic Ayine is a blatant falsehood that must be rejected by Ghanaians.

3. The unfortunate comments from Dr Dominic Ayine that: “for the Supreme Court to reduce the Petition into a single-issue petition is rather unfortunate and smacks of a predetermined agenda to rule against the ‘etitioner in this matter…we think that the court by this decision has not done the people of this country a great service. In the sense that Ghanaians are interested in knowing the truth…the Justices, today, have not given us a reason to believe that they want the people of this country to know the truth about what happened”, were voluntarily uttered by Dr Ayine and he is solely responsible for its consequences.

4. Dr Ayine has, in the past, been warned by the court for his conduct aimed at disparaging the Supreme Court.

5. The suggestion that the lawyers and spokespersons of the 2nd Respondent have been attacking, insulting and belittling the lead counsel of the petitioner is a plain falsehood, mischievously crafted to solicit public sympathy for the legal team of the Petitioner to conceal their poor performance, evident from the dismissals almost every major motion/application they have filed has suffered thus far.

6. The regrettable attitude of the lead counsel of the petitioner toward the bench has been a matter of public outrage and it is not correct to suggest that it is the lawyers or spokespersons of the 2nd Respondent that have made a case out of it.

7. It is utterly shocking for the National Communications Officer of the NDC, who, over the years, have persistently insulted and disrespected President Akufo-Addo – someone whose legal and political achievements, the former may never be able to attain in his entire life – to lament and suggest that the spokespersons of the 2nd Respondent ought to show deference to seniors at the Bar, when, in actual fact, there hasn’t been any act of disrespect on the part of the 2nd Respondent’s team toward the Petitioner’s lawyers or spokespersons.

8. We encourage the NDC team to focus on explaining to their supporters why the statistics they earlier claimed were in their favour have been abandoned in court.

9. We also admonish them to desist from misinforming the public on developments in court and also refrain from their penchant to create a false impression that the court is biased against them.

10. The Spokespersons for the 2nd Respondent’s legal team will remain forthright and continuously inform the public on the truth about developments in court and not hesitate to respond adequately to the NDC propaganda.

Thank you

Yaw Buaben Asamoa, Esq.

(Director of Communications, NPP)

I Will Never Join NDC Again Even If My Suspension Is Lifted – Allotey Jacobs

Published

on


Allotey Jacobs, former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says he never return to the party even if his suspension is lifted.

In an interview with Oti-based Radio Safari, he said, “I will never join that party again. I’m even old, I’m getting to 70 years. God has been merciful to me, so why should I worry myself?”

Allotey Jacobs was suspended by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in May 2020.

A letter signed by the national chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, said Jacobs was suspended for “persistent anti-party conduct.

“The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the National Democratic Congress, acting on behalf of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party, at its meeting held on Wednesday, the 6th day of May 2020, has suspended you forthwith as a member of the party, pursuant to articles 46(1), 46(6) and 46(8) of the party’s constitution for your persistent anti-party conduct,” the letter stated.

Mahama Was Asking The Supreme Court To Ignore The People’s Will Because Of An Error By The EC – Gabby Otchere Darko

Published

on


Senior Member of the governing New Patriotic Party, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, says former President John Dramani Mahama’s election petition goes against the essence of petitions.

According to Mr Otchere-Datko, who is a cousin of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the National Democratic Congress’ flagbearer is asking the Supreme Court to set aside the will of Ghanaians, which is not what petitions are meant for.

In a Twitter post, he said Mr Mahama is calling on the court to declare a verdict in his favour based on an error by the Electoral Commission which has been corrected since.

A former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho has said that by next week, the whole country will know from the Supreme Court if the dead goat is lost, or the lame horse “and its vulture- allies, have eaten the dead goat.”

The Supreme Court will deliver judgement on the election petition filed by former president John Dramani Mahama on March 4.

After hearing on Monday, February 22, Chair of the seven-member panel Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah announced that judgement will be delivered on Thursday, March 4.

Mr Mahama, who was the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the disputed elections, had brought the case to the apex court of Ghana, praying it to set aside a declaration of the results made by the Chair of the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC), Jean Adukwei Mensa, on Wednesday, December 9.

In a tweet, Mr Anyigodo who has been suspended from the NDC said “Did I hear from the forest that, for some time now, a lame horse is complaining that its dead goat is lost?

“Next week; we shall know from a Supreme Court, if the dead goat is lost, or the lame horse & its vulture- allies, have eaten the dead goat. ‘E be ye pinsoooooo’.”
