A private lawful practitioner and an individual from the New Patriotic Party (NPP), attorney Osei Tutu Junior has believed that the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has demolished the instance of the petitioner John Dramani Mahama by his responses to questions during his interrogation.
He premised his assertion on the responses given to questions asked by the judges in relation to the figures the NDC need to counter the declaration by the Electoral Commission.
Mr Nketiah was responding to a question from Justice Yaw Appau, asking the NDC witness on the off chance that they had contrary figures to that of the EC.
Passages of the sitting on Monday read;
YA: In all the figures that were mentioned as the substantial votes cast and every one of those things, you were saying if the figures were correct and that there were inconsistencies in the figures. I will ask you, in your own calculations what were the total substantial votes cast in the official elections on December 7, 2020
JAN: My Lord, those calculations are held for a gathering for us to reconcile the figures because the primary respondent herself continue to change the figures.
(Boss Justice Anin Yeboah steps in to stop the chitchat)
AN: Tell the court, when you began giving your submissions you said you had delegates from all the 275 surveying stations the nation over, and they were to order the figures and he is asking you from that, what figures did you get.
JAN: My Lord, I haven’t carried that figure to court
YA: Very well, from your own calculations what were the substantial votes projected for the petitioner (John Mahama) as far as anyone is concerned
JAN: My Lord, when we found these disparities it was hard to try and determine what figures he got
YA: So, you don’t know, simply answer
JAN: I don’t have them here
YA: What were the figures from your calculations did the second respondent (Nana Akufo-Addo) get as total legitimate votes cast in support of himself
