A second witness of the Petitioner in the 2020 election petition Dr. Kpesssah Whyte has indicated that he never spoke to the Chairperson of the second respondent Jean Mensa.
Dr. Kpessah Whyte said while working in the Electoral Commission’s strong room on December 9 together with his colleague Rojo Mettle-Nunoo said he was instructed by the Commission’s chairperson to go and seek a conference with the 2020 NDC flagbearer, John Mahama.
However, Dr. Kpessah Whyte indicated that he did not speak directly to the EC’s Chairperson but rather his colleague told him the instruction given by the Commission’s Chairperson.
He said that Jean Menah instructed them to seek a conference with their flagbearer on some irregularities they had identified.
And she did also indicate that the reason she was asking us to do so is for all the stakeholders including the NPP, Peace Council and others could be invited to ensure that we had a credible result before the announcement of the winner is made,” he said.
When asked whether leaving the EC’s strongroom was against the work they had been sent by the petitioner he said “That is not true because we were working in furtherance of making sure that the results to be declared by the First Respondent reflects and represent the will of the people and if she is asking us to consult with the petitioner is part of how we could get there, we were ready to do that”.
