Our Petition Is Still Strong Even Though Supreme Court Has Struck Out Portions Of Asiedu Nketiah’s Statement – NDC Legal Team

Published

on


A spokesperson for the petitioner’s lawyers in the ongoing election petition hearing at the Supreme Court, Mr Abraham Amaliba, has said they still have a strong case before the court even though portions of the witness statement of one of the petitioners’ witnesses, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, have been struck out.

The Supreme Court on Friday, January 29, struck out seven portions of the witness statement by the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the ongoing hearing of the election petition.

Lead counsel for the second respondent, President Akufo-Addo, Mr Akoto Ampaw, told the court 10 paragraphs in Mr Asiedu Nketia’s statement should be deleted because in his view, they are “not based on the pleadings of the petitioner, unduly prejudicial and scandalous”.

Lead Counsel for the petitioners, Tsatsu Tsikata, however, objected to the move.

But the court struck out some portions and maintained the others.

Paragraphs 6 and 7 struck out. Paragraph 21 maintained. End part Paragraph 25 struck out. Part of Paragraph 26 struck out. Part of Paragraph 28 struck out. Paragraph entirely 30 struck out. Paragraphs 32 and 33 and maintained. Paragraph 37 struck out

The court adjourned the case to Monday, February 1.

Asked whether this development affects the strength of their case while speaking on the Key Points on TV3 Saturday, January 30, Mr Amaliba said “Does it affect our case? No! It doesn’t”

He further told host Abena Tabi that “Knowing who our lead counsel is, these same questions can be rephrased during cross-examination. So it doesn’t hurt our case.”

If Ghana Is Safe, Walk In Town Without Bodyguards – Adib Saani Dares Politicians

Published

on


Security Analyst, Adib Saani has challenged politicians claiming there’s no sense of insecurity in the country to walk in town without bodyguards.

He was reacting to comments by Interior Minister, Ambrose Derry who insisted Ghana is safe because other countries are experiencing worse insecurities.

However, Adib Saani believes there country is no more the safe haven it used to be; adding that even police officers are complaining of insecurities.

“I would advise that they withdraw their personal security detail to prove that indeed, there is security in Ghana. It doesn’t make sense to have a bodyguard when you think all is safe. It is hypocritical and insensitive to maintain your bodyguards at the same time opine that Ghana is safe,” he said in a statement.

He continued: “The trend is so bad that even police personnel complain of insecurity. As expected, a lot more Ghanaians will be enquiring about owning guns. Some might use crooked methods to obtain these weapons. This will invariably birth another major security challenge. How about the other millions of Ghanaians without bodyguards?”

Akufo-Addo Broke No Law By Hiring Private Jet But… – NDC’s Joseph Yammin

Published

on


Former Deputy Youth and Sports Minister, Joseph Yammin says President Akufo-Addo broke no law by hiring a private jet on his trip to France, however, he could have gone for a less expensive one.

According to Mr Yammin, the President needs protection both internally and externally however, the huge monies spent on luxurious private jets could have done something fir the suffering Ghanaians.

“For me, the President broke no law, but he could have learnt from Prophet Nehemiah in the Bible who built a wall for the Israelites without charge when the people were in captivity. Nana Akufo-Addo could have gone for a less expansive jet if he really had the country at heart”, he said.
