Why Is Mahama Himself Not In The Witness Box But You Want Jean Mensah There? Oppong Nkrumah Quizzes


Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, one of the spokespersons for the 2nd Respondent in the ongoing Election Petition at the Supreme Court has questioned why the petitioner (John Dramani Mahama) himself has refused to testify in the witness box.

After proceedings on Monday February 8, the media quizzed the Information minister designate on why the Electoral Commission boss, Jean Mensah seem to be running away from being cross examined in the witness box.

In response, Mr Oppong Nkrumah replied: “…isn’t it interesting that Mr Mahama himself, the Petitioner, did not mount the witness box and we are not arguing about why he is not in the witness box? Why has he not taken the witness box? Can anybody force him to take the witness box?”

Can anybody force Mr Mahama to take the witness box? Can anybody force the other two witnesses of the NDC that by force they should get into the box?

So, if you are asking about the announcement that we will not be putting anybody in the box, it is because our lawyers are of the view that, that basic threshold [of the petitioner presenting a winnable case] has not been met,” he said.
