Mahama’s Case Is Solid Even If Jean Mensa Is Not Cross-examined – Lawyer



A member of the legal team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Kojoga Adawudu has noted that the petitioner in the ongoing election petition hearing at the Supreme Court, Mr John Dramani Mahama has made a strong case in court.

He said on the Key Points on TV3 Saturday February 13, that even if the chairperson of the 1st Respondent, Jean Mensa does not appear in the witness box to testify, the petitioner still has a solid case before the highest court.

“Even if she doesn’t come into the box, we have made a compelling case. Without defendant it does not mean our case has not been made,” he told host of the show Abena Tabi.

For her part, a spokesperson for the legal team of the 2nd respondent, Nana Adjoa Adobea said the petitioner has not been able to satisfy the burden of proof in the case.

  1. Lawyers have a strange way of dealing with the rules of the law.
    The lawyers of the respondents made sure that all the sentences that claims that the petitioner has won the election was dropped and deleted from the petition.
    This is because the claims without those statements make no sense even if they are not contested and a default judgment is given the winning to the petitioner.
    The petition said nothing about the petitioner winning the case.
    The petition has claimed that nobody got the 50%+1 threshold and that was proved wrong in court by Mr Asiedu Nketia when he was offered a calculator to do the tabulation in Court. So that has been defeated already.
    So what is this lawyer talking about as a strong case?
