Mr. Dominic Ayine, the spokesperson for the petitioner, John Mahama in the ongoing election petition hearing has expressed his regrets over decisions made by the supreme on the motion move for the reopening of the petitioner’s case.
He lamented that the Supreme Court has done a disservice to Ghanaians following its ruling against the motion moved.
While expressing his sentiments, he quizzed why the Supreme Court was treating Jean Mensa like a private citizen in the matter. He said, ‘We think that the court by this decision has not done Ghanaians a great service.
The justices have not given us a reason to believe that they want Ghanaians to know the truth about what happened in the election even though the figures keep changing till date. Why does the court treat her (Jean Mensa) like a private citizen”
Earlier today, the Supreme dismissed an application filed by former President John Mahama to have his case re-opened.
The apex court panel of seven chaired by Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah said they find no merit in the application and proceed with the ongoing case without any hesitation.
It was the considered view of the court that the EC Chairperson is not on trial and cannot be asked to vindicate herself.
Meanwhile, Lawyer Tsikata told the court on Tuesday he will be filing a stay of proceedings pending the determination of an application for a review of the court’s ruling on February 11.
