Election Petition: We’ll Also Subpoena Mahama If…

Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, a Spokesperson for President Akufo-Addo speaking in an interview on Thursday said they will also subpoena the Petitioner, John Dramani Mahama if he is able to subpoena Madam Jean Mensa, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.

The Supreme Court on Thursday said it was not convinced and would not yield to the request of the Counsel for the Petitioner that Madam Jean Mensa should be invited to the witness box to answer questions.

 “We are not convinced and will not yield to the invitation being extended to the court by the counsel for the petitioner to order the respondents to enter the witness box in order to be cross-examined.

Accordingly, we hereby overrule the objection raised by the counsel for the petitioner against the decision of the respondents declining to adduce testimonies in this petition,” the Chief Justice said.

However, John Mahama through Tsatsu Tsikata has filed a motion of leave to re-open the case to enable the EC box to undergo cross-examinations.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah said they will also summon Mahama to undergo cross-examinations if they succeed in subpoenaing the EC Boss.
