Mr. Samuel Koku Anyidoho, former Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Chief Executive Officer of the Atta Mills Institute has posed a question on his Twitter page that has caused a stir on social media.
Although Koku Anyidoho says his question is a harmless question that is not directed at anyone, others may be quick to assume the question has to do with Former President Mahama’s ongoing election petition at the Supreme Court since Mr. Koku is known for his numerous posts lambasting the petition as he calls it baseless.
Mr. Koku Anyido, who has been suspended until further notice by the leadership of the NDC asks,
“Will you stake your integrity & colourful career on a single court case? I have asked an innocent & innocuous question for my Civic Education students to answer. I do not wish for any horrible news portals to attribute to me nothing that I have not said.”
The comments that have been attracted by the post suggest that it is risky for any lawyer to smirch his or her integrity on a single court case.
Among the comments, one comment states that “the case is dead” and thus re-echoes what has been trumpeted by the supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) about Mr. Mahama’s petition?
