To measure him by his demeanor and his experience in law, he certainly does not look like a person who would attack a Supreme Court judge after a final ruling has been delivered.
But Tsatsu Tsikata took us all by surprise when he launched a discolored attack on Justice Anin-Yeboah and accused him of allowing his political affiliations to cloud his judgment.
Considering the timing of his attack, many are those who have described it as an unflattering comment which would only open the floodgates for derogatory remarks to be poured on all the judges who sat on the election petition filed by Nana Akufo-Addo, Mr. Jake Obetsebi Lamptey and Dr. Bawumia.
One of such persons who believe Mr. Tsikata’s comment is indiscreet is Mr. Jacob Osei Yeboah. As a leader seeking to capture political power in the near future, he is of the view that the nation’s peace after the final verdict is yet to stabilize.
In an interview with OKAY FM, Mr. Osei Yeboah stated that Mr. Tsikata’s attack on Justice Anim Yeboah shows that the once respected lawyer, has no respect for the judicial service.
“If you take a look at his demeanor, he does not look like a person who can say such things…he has allowed politics to eat into him and opened the floodgates for others to attack the Supreme Court judges”, he said.
He called on him to come out and apologize to the judicial service and the nation for the untactful comment he made.
