Lead Counsel for the petitioner [John Mahama], Tsatsu Tsikata says it is in the interest of Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa to testify in order to clear all doubts relating to the declaration of the 2020 election results.
Tsikata making a case as to why Jean Mensa must testify said ,it would serve as an honour to the God that she serves and to the truth, if she is compelled to do.
“As we have previously indicated, this is a witness who gave glory to God for the things she was doing and appropriately. So my Lords, it will honour that God that she gave glory to in making her purported declaration if she would come forward as a witness of truth,” Tsikata said.
That submission was however challenged by the Chief Justice and another Justice who asked Tsikata to focus on the main legal issues and to leave aside issues of the EC chair’s faith.
But the lawyer insisted that there was an issue of truth at stake with the current petition. He further cited how the EC lawyer had questioned the veracity of claims made by petitioner’s witnesses especially witnesses two and three – Michael Kpessa-Whyte and Rojo Mettle-Nunoo respectively.
