Nana Ato Dadzie’s call for New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawyers to render an unqualified apology to the Supreme Court, especially Justice Atuguba, seems to have fallen on deaf ears as a member of the NPP’s legal team, Lawyer Egbert Faibille, has made it clear that they “are not ready to take lessons in morality” from him.
In an address to the legal team of the NPP, Mr. Dadzie is on record to have told his colleagues to do the honourable thing by going on their knees and apologize to the court for damaging the reputation of Justice Atuguba as well as the reputation of all the other judges.
But in sharp contrast to his(Ato Dadzie) call, Mr. Faibille, stated that looking at the case the NPP has presented before the Supreme Court, it would totally be wrong for them to make a fuss about Mr. Dadzie’s “red herrings”.
Lawyer Egbert Faibille proceeded to counsel Nana Ato Dadzie to remain “focus” instead of trying to offer moral tutorials to his political opponents.
“Nana Ato Dadzie must focus on his work for the NDC’s legal team and leave the NPP to prosecute their case.
“I think that when a case is before court, it is beneficial to focus on it rather than the mere shenanigans. There is no use and if the NPP doesn’t apologize, what can he do,what can Nana Ato Dadzie do?” he inquired.
According to Egbert Faibille who spoke on Okay FM, as to how Nana Ato Dadzie knew that the NPP had issues with the composition of the nine judge panel which is chaired by Justice Atuguba, it remains a mystery since he (Ato Dadzie) wasn’t present and doesn’t know the details of the objection they raised on the day.
