The NDC’s election petition hearing at the Supreme Court of Ghana continued unabated this morning, with the petitioner’s third witness, Mr Rojo Mettle Nunoo, mounting the witness box, albeit via a zoom conference call, answer questions during cross examination with EC legal coucil, Justice Amenuvor.
The eagerly awaited cross examination had been protracted due to Rojo Mettle Nunoo’s ill health. Justice Amenuvor wasted no time by putting it to Rojo Mettle Nunoo, that, his entire witness statement was an after thought of all that transpired at the EC strong room. Adding that, Rojo Mettle Nunoo left the EC strong room by his own accord, and not according to the statements that have been released by the petitioner in the witness statements presented.
Rojo Mettle Nunoo in his defence stated categorically that all these allegations which were made by EC’s legal council were untrue and that there was no way he was going to mount the witness box to talk about something that is not true. Adding that, the well of experience he has accumulated over the years coupled with his age, status and indepth knowledge of the EC’s electoral instrument, CI132, means that, there was no way he was going to mount a podium that is as big as this one to lie. Justice Amenuvor on his part, chastised Rojo Mettle Nunoo that the August court was not in session to listen to personal accolades and appellations of witnesses, and that Rojo Mettle Nunoo should focus on answering the questions posed to him alone.
With the petitioner stating categorically that he has 5 witnesses who can bear witness that the second respondent, Nana Addo, did not get more than 50% in the just ended elections, there is a high chance that 2 more witnesses could be called testify that the petitioner’s argument is indeed valid.
