Outgoing Central Regional Minister, Madam Ama Benyiwa Doe, has expressed strong faith in the leadership of the NDC for selecting Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata, to lead the ruling party’s legal team in fighting the petition filed by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the Supreme Court over the alleged election rigging by the EC and NDC.
According to her, the NPP had always feared and kowtowed to the arguments of Mr. Tsikata due to his comprehensive understanding of the law.
The 'caretaker' Central Regional Minister claimed that Mr. Tsikata had always landed a hefty blow to the NPP anytime they encountered him in court.
In an interview with Okay FM, she said “most of the NPP lawyers were trained by Tsatsu. He is very intelligent and can quote the laws well without making mistakes. He knows when to use the right quotations and the NPP is doomed in court this time round”.
She noted that it was shameful for the NPP to flare up when they truly know that they were defeated in the just ended elections.
“They have reached their end point and the electoral defeat has brought bruises on their face. It is out of that they are trying to act tough”, Madam Benyiwa Doe stated.
