You are Having a Laugh - Tsatsu Tsikata

? Let me be very clear with my readers about the caption of this write-up. "You are having a laugh - Tsatsu Tsikata". You are Having a Laugh is used to show that you think that what someone has just said is not reasonable or fair. ? Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata, alias Mr Quote Quote has said in the Supreme Court, "I am tired of having to check several lists of pink sheets continually being served on us by the petitioners in the election petition hearing. Philip Addison is just delaying the Court from forging ahead to finish the case in time". Is "Mr Quote Quote the Real Quote" being reasonable? No, he is not being fair!

Tsatsu Tsikata, dwelt on almost the same question pulling pink sheet this, pink sheet that, when cross-examining Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for seventeen days or so. Now that he is being paid back in his own coin, he is crying foul. ? Lead Counsel for the petitioners, Philip Addison has not the intention of paying Tsatsu back in his own coin but seriously establishing beyond all reasonable doubt how Dr Afari Gyan and his outfit colluded with the NDC to rig the election 2012 in favour of then presidential-candidate John Dramani Mahama.

Unlike Tsatsu who was rudely dramatizing in Court sometime ago, Philip is proving a point with the pink sheets. He is graphically proving to the whole world how Dr Afari Gyan connived to rig the election.

? With the double serial-numbered pink sheets but different polling station names, codes and results, a seeming statutory violation has been committed. With unsigned pink sheets by the returning or presiding polling station Electoral Officer, an irregularity tantamount to statutory violation has been committed. With indication of over-votes on the face of the pink sheets, malpractices have taken place. With indication of voters casting their votes without submitting to biometric verification, a serious offence has been committed. ? All the above violations can be ascertained by showing the pink sheets containing them to Dr Afari Gyan for affirmation. What then is Tsatsu Tsikata moaning about? The whole world wants to see the concerned pink sheets on live telecast. We need to see them to prove how the NDC has rigged the election but continues to lie about it. ? When are the members of the NDC family with President Mahama inclusive, going to accept the fact that the election was indeed rigged? GOD has alerted us to that fact through Kofi Basoah. Dr Afari Gyan is confirming it by his responses at the cross-examination. ? The respondents had better throw in the towel to save themselves from further embarrassments and disgrace. Tsatsu had better keep his silence from today forward, for every sensible Ghanaian now knows the election was indeed rigged.

It is only a fool that cannot at this stage tell that the petitioners are on course to winning the Supreme Court case.
