Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

NDC lawyers to rigorously cross examine Bawumia

NDC lawyers to rigorously cross examine Bawumia

Lawyers for the second respondents in the ongoing election petition hearing, National Democratic Congress (NDC), have served notice they will subject the second petitioner to a rigorous cross examination later today.

Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia - the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) 2012 running mate - began his testimony Wednesday, challenging the credibility of the 2012 polls while demanding the annulment of a significant number of votes. He is expected to complete his testimony this morning.

And the NDC lawyers say they have already found several loopholes in the testimony Dr. Bawumia gave on Wednesday which they intend to expose during cross examination.

Speaking to Joy News, lead counsel Nana Ato Dadzie hinted he was running out of time to “put him [Dr. Bawumia] to the task”.

“Everything that Dr. Bawumia has said are allegations...our team is ever ready to show that this is not a case that should have [been entertained in court]”.

He said Dr. Bawumia should expect nothing but a clinched determination “to cross examine him vigorously on every single allegation”.

It is also expected that NPP flagbearer in the last elections, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo will give his oral testimony to provide further evidence to back claims of widespread statutory irregularities in the elections.
