Mr. Kwame Bafo Abronye, Bono Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has verbally chastised the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Mr. Abronye states that Mr. Asiedu Nketia’s output at the Supreme Court during the cross-examination reveals that he was not adequately prepared before willingly accepting to testify for John Dramani Mahama.
Speaking on the Kumasi-based Wontumi TV, Mr. Abronye says that the petitioner had maximum hopes in Mr. Asiedu Nketia to serve as a witness in court considering his experience and in-depth knowledge in elections.
“Asiedu Nketia is from Sekwa and was placed in the box as a key witness for the Petitioner, John Dramani Mahama. They had a lot of hopes in him to deliver but the first appearance was not impressive. He had on several occasions told Ghanaians that Mr. John Dramani Mahama won the election but he is now giving a different account in court. He has disappointed all of us,” Abronye stated.
Abronye has further added that Mr. Asiedu Nketia should be charged for deviating from his mission in court. According to Abronye, Asiedu Nketia’s purpose in court was to defend his witness statement and nothing else.
“They should charge Asiedu Nketia for perjury. Because he said they were not in court to proclaim victory but to challenge the declaration by the Electoral Commission.
Now they are in court because of the mistakes made by the Electoral Commission. So in essence, they have admitted that Akufo Addo won the election. I don’t even know why he’s in court. It will be difficult for Asiedu Nketsia to defend his witness statement,” he added.
