Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi, the Spokesperson for Mahama’s legal team in the ongoing Election Petition, who doubles as the National Communications Director of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has sadly expressed worry over the attempt of Madam Jean Mensa, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, to escape cross-examination and also promises to expose certain lawyers belonging to the Respondent’s legal team.
According to the young lawyer, cross-examination has become inevitable for Madam Jean Mensa to prove her integrity and credibility to the people of Ghana.
Sammy Gyamfi adds that Jean Mensah’s refusal to undergo cross-examination by lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata will make her the worst EC Chairperson ever in the political history of Ghana.
Sammy Gyamfi’s utterances are in respect of the legal tussle between the lawyers of the Petitioner and those of the Respondent over the quest of the legal team for the Petitioner to get Madam Jean Mensa to mount the witness box for queries.
The NDC National Communications Director has expressed hope in the proceedings of the Court while speaking in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosiisen show hosted by Osei Bonsu.
Sammy Gyamfi angrily dares to expose Lawyer Akoto Ampaw and the legal Spokesperson for President Akufo-Addo’s legal team as he accuses them of throwing dust into the eyes of Ghanaians.
“How can you change your mind at this stage? You are stopped from doing this because you have already elected in your witness statement and in your several affidavits before the Court. They have more or less endorsed the case of the Petitioner.
You have not even explained to the Court the basis of your decision to change your mind. Why is Akoto Ampaw and other lawyers deceiving their supporters? I am trying to tell you they are making excuses and that cannot happen in Ghana. Allow me to expose them first,” he submits.
