NPP lies angered Judges - Asiedu Nketia

Johnson Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of the NDC has stated that the detest expressed by the Supreme Court of the description of the Bench as “timid” with regards to their decision to annul sections of C.I. 74, shows NPP always peddle falsehood.

“…There is no way one would not feel the heat after eating hot pepper. This is happening because I have not spoken for five days, so the NPP think they can tell lies and get away, and that has gotten them into trouble with the Supreme Court.

“The reproach of the Supreme Court indicates the people who have always claimed to be truthful are rebuked for the lies being spewed after court proceedings,” he explained.

General Mosquito made these comments after the Supreme Court took exception to the description as “timid” by Gabby Otchere-Darko, the Executive Director of the Danquah Institute after a seven-member panel chaired by Justice Julius Ansah unanimously held that sitting on holidays as well as weekends by the court as prescribed by C.I. 74 was inconsistent with the law and, therefore, unconstitutional.

The court further held that the decisions arising out of disputes under C.I. 74 can also be reviewed and thus went ahead to nullify Rule 71(b) of C.I. 74 which provides that the decision of the Supreme Court in respect of a petition presented to challenge the election of a President cannot be reviewed.

The case was filed by Bernard Mornah, General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC) in which he sought the annulment of C.I. 74.

According to General Mosquito, the latest development is an indication that the NPP has never been factual and truthful with the account as far as the happenings in court is concerned and expressed joy that he was not the one to point it out but the Supreme Court itself.

He was of the view that, the NPP are fond of telling lies and that has landed them into trouble this time with the Supreme Court.

“If a child steals in the house and no one says anything, he would go out to do it and get arrested, and that is exactly what the NPP has done,” he added.

However, Gabby Otchere-Darko who doubles as a Journalist and a lawyer has since rendered an unqualified apology to the Highest Court of the land via his facebook page.
