Today being the 5th of February 2021, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Mr. Kwasi Anin Yeboah told the led counsel for former president John Dramani Mahama of the biggest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the ongoing presidential election petition hearing, that the supreme Court was at a loss following his (Tsatsu Tsikata) argument for a particular claim of the third witness (Rojo Mettle Nunoo) of former president John Dramani Mahama.
Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata was arguing for the 8th paragraph of John Dramani Mahama’s third witness’ statement. Rojo Mettle Nunoo in his 8th paragraph stated that on several occasions him and his colleague, Dr. Michael Kpessah Whyte pointed out so many errors in figures and words on the sheets that were brought in ultimately affected totals and assigned results. He revealed that the officials of the Electoral Commission of the Republic of Ghana made phone calls on the basis of which they sought to explain and correct some of the errors him and his colleague, Dr Kpessah Whyte pointed out.
Mr. Akoto Ampaw who wanted the 8th and 5th paragraph of Rojo Mettle Nunoo dismissed asked the Supreme Court to dismiss the claim of Rojo Mettle Nunoo because it was not borne out of pleadings , this made Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata to object Mr. Akoto Ampaw’s request immediately.
It was at this point that the Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah came in and said “ 𝙎𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 60(3) 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙀𝙫𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝘼𝙘𝙩 𝙨𝙖𝙞𝙙 𝙖 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙢𝙖𝙮 𝙩𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙛𝙮 𝙩𝙤 𝙖 𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙤𝙛 𝙤𝙛 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬𝙡𝙚𝙙𝙜𝙚 𝙞𝙛 𝙣𝙤 𝙤𝙗𝙟𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙞𝙨 𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙨𝙚𝙙 𝙗𝙮 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙮’.
The court is at a loss whether this could have been raised in evidence that is all.
