If you don’t have facts, don’t go to court – Koku Anyidoho

The Chief Executive Officer of the Atta Mills, Samuel Koku Anyidoho Institute has advised people to assess the evidence supporting their case before seeking review at the court.

Koku Anyidoho in a tweet opined that before one goes to court, the person should guarantee that there are facts to back their claims.

“If you don’t have a balcony, do not make a monkey your pet: if you don’t have facts to back your case, do not go to court oooo!”, he tweeted.

The tweet by the former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress has no form of correlation with the 2020 election petition being heard by the Supreme Court.

John Mahama of the NDC wouldn’t accept the ‘flawed’ consequence of the 2020 elections and has gone to the supreme court to look for ‘justice’.

On Monday, February 1, 2021, one of Mahama’s two witnesses underwent a grueling interrogation exercise.

Asiedu Nketia, who is the General Secretary of the NDC faced off with Akoto Ampaw who is the lead counsel for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the subsequent respondent.

Asiedu Nketia among other things stated that the party and its flagbearer consider the outcomes announced by Jean Mensa, the Returning Officer of the Presidential elections as misrepresentation of the ballots cast by Ghanaians on December 7, 2020.

“My Lord we are not interested in winning or losing a flawed election, we want to be winners of an election that is credible,” he told the court.

Asiedu Nketia also dismissed a supposition by Akoto Ampaw that he implicitly declared John Dramani Mahama as the winner of the election.

“I stand by each word, punctuation, and sentence that relates to me, Aseidu Nketia. There is nowhere I indicated definitively that the petitioner has won the election.”

“What I said was that we have won the majority of seats in parliament and that we are cruising for victory and that is precisely what has shown out in all the various speeches”, he stated after videos of statements by some NDC bigwigs and himself were played at the court.

In the witness box, today will be Dr Kpessa Whyte who is the other witness.
