Election Petition: We’re satisfied with Asiedu Nketia’s testimony – NDC

Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, a former Attorney General and a spokesperson of John Mahama’s legal team has expressed confidence in answers General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. John Asiedu Nketia gave during his cross-examination in court.

According to her, Mr. Asiedu Nketia didn’t say anything that undermined their case.

She insisted that the NDC scribe proved why the petitioner, John Mahama, is disputing the election results adding that Asiedu Nketia left the witness box with his credibility intact.

“We are happy with the testimonies given by our General Secretary today. In fact, nothing that he has said undermines our case. Indeed, everything he said goes to the point that we are entitled to the declarations we are seeking. Other interesting things happened in court today one of which is the videos. They sought to try to dent the credibility of our General Secretary. But they were unsuccessful.”

“In the end, his credibility rather soared because if you watched the video, it was clear that he never said at any point in time that the petitioner had won the elections and rightly so. He stated that based on the 141 parliamentary seats we had won, the projection was that he was going to win so, of course, they flopped in that regard,” she said while addressing the media after the hearing on Monday.

Meanwhile the Supreme Court has adjourned hearing of the election petition to tomorrow Tuesday, February 2.

Second witness for the petitioner, Dr Michael Kpessa-Wyhte is expected to mount the witness box for his cross-examination when hearing resumes.

This comes after cross-examination of the first witness of the petitioner, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia ended on Monday February 1.
