Member of the 2nd Respondent legal team in the 2020 election Petition, Mr Frank Davies has called on his colleague legal practitioner and Director of Legal Affairs of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) Mr Abraham Amaliba to learn from history and read reports.
Dr Davies comments was in reaction to Mr Amaliba’s claims that the 2013 election petition, interrogatories were granted the petitioners by the Supreme Court and wondered why same was not accorded the 2020 petitioner, Mr John Dramani Mahama.
“And Mr Abraham Amaliba in 2013, the application for interrogatories filed by the petitioners was dismissed. Learn from history and go and read the report”.
He indicated it was unacceptable for Mr Amaliba, a learned fellow of the court to misinform the public in such matters and urged him to desist from such.
“The interrogatory was not granted it was dismissed so please don’t come and sit on public discourse and disabuse and misinform the public. The interrogatories in 2013 was not granted, Mr Abraham Amaliba, Esq counsel please so don’t come and sit on television and say what you are saying.”
The panelists were speaking about the Supreme Court’s judgment today on the 2020 Election Petition filed by the former President and Presidential Candidate of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama.
The Supreme Court of Ghana on Thursday, March 4, gave its judgment in the 2020 election petition.
In over two long hours judgment proceedings the seven-panel justices dismissed the petition as not having merit.
