Your Question To Asiedu Nketia Was Not Relevant – Tsikata Clashes With Justice Yaw Appau

Published

on


Tsatsu Tsikata, lead counsel for the petitioner in the ongoing election petition filed by former president John Mahama has described as “irrelevant” questions Justice Yaw Appau asked Johnson Asiedu Nketia regarding his calculation of the 2020 presidential results.

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, who testified as the star witness for Mr Mahama told the supreme court that he did not have the total valid votes as far as the 2020 Presidential Election.

The witness, testifying at the instance of Mr Mahama who is challenging the results of December 7, 2020, Presidential Election declared by the Electoral Commission (EC), could also not tell the court what per his calculation, the total valid votes obtained by Mr Mahama was.

Again the witness could not tell the court what number of valid votes President Akufo-Addo had obtained in the election even though Mr Mahama had filed the petition challenging that none of the candidates who participated in the election met the threshold of more than 50 per cent of the total valid votes to be declared the winner as done by the EC on December 9, 2020.

Mr Asiedu Nketia, answering a question from Justice Appau told the court that “My Lord, I haven’t brought that figure to court.”

Justice Apau then asked, “from your own calculations, what were the valid votes cast in favour of the petitioner (Mr Mahama), to your knowledge?”

Justice Appau that day, asked Mr Nketia, “What figures from your own calculations did the second respondent (Nana Akufo-Addo) get as the total valid votes cast in his favour?

But in court on Wednesday, Mr Tsikata who was moving a motion for inspection of the document from the EC said that question asked Mr Nketia was irrelevant.

According to counsel, the application before the court was premised on the declaration made by the Electoral Commission using different figures and Mr Nketia is not the returning officer of the EC.

In his response, Justice Appau said: “that is your opinion and you can keep that to yourself.”

Blame Yourself For Not Doing Your Work Properly In The Strong Room – Supreme Court Chastizes Kpessah Whyte And Mettle-Nunoo

Published

on


The justices of the supreme court have told witnesses of Mr John Dramani Mahama in the election petition, Mr Rojo Mettle Nunoo and Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte to blame themselves for abandoning their duties in the strong room during the final collation of the election results if their claims are to be believed.

During proceedings, the two witnesses told the court that they were sent by the Chair of the Electoral Commission (EC) to Mr Mahama at the time of the collation of the final results in the strong room. In their absence, the results were then announced.

Delivering the judgment on Thursday, March 4 the court said “…Notwithstanding all these allegations of misunderstandings with the chair of the 1st respondent in the strong room and the fact that they were absent during the declaration, they did not give any indication as to how these happenings in their absence affected the final results announced by the 1st Respondent.

“The testimonies would have carried some little weight if the purpose of the petition was to change entries made on the collation forms or summary sheets but that is not the case.

“Their testimonies were therefore of no relevance to the said issues set out for determination and so we find them unworthy for consideration whatsoever.

“In fact, regarding the testimonies of PW2 and PW3 , if their evidence is to be believed then they had to blame themselves for abandoning their post at the national collation centre at the time the verification and certification of the results were ongoing and PW3 had then verified and certified the regional collation results out of the 16.”
