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.

Tsatsu Tsikata Will Not Cross Examine Dr. Bawumia Till Thy Kingdom Come

Nana Ato Dadzie, a member of the NDC legal team in the on-going trial challenging the 2012 election results has assured that, the lead counsel for the NDC, Tsatsu Tsikata is likely to conclude his cross examination with the star witness of the petitioners, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia soon.

According to him, the cacophonies scattering that Mr. Tsikata is prolonging with his cross examination will not last till ‘thy kingdom come’ as the counsel is preparing to clinch with Dr. Bawumia so other witnesses will mount the witness box and be cross examined as demanded by Tsatsu, when he filed a motion during Monday’s hearing.

The Supreme Court as part of its directive ordered the parties involved in the election petition case to come by affidavits testimony in order to facilitate a quick trial.

The Court however directed it will grant a special indulgence to key witnesses to appear in person and if necessary grant an application for other witnesses who have sworn affidavits to appear in person.

Tsatsu Tsikata jumped on such advantage of this stipulation and has applied to cross examine some of the witnesses for the petitioners who have sworn affidavits for the petitioners.

Speaking on Asempa FM, Nana Ata Dadzie however listed the said witnesses likely to be in the witness box after Dr. Bawumia.

“These witnesses are Mr. Eugene Sarkie, a former NPP candidate for Upper West Akim constituency; Kwabena Twum Nuamah who is also an MP for, Freda Prempeh and one Fuseinu who made an allegation of irregularities will all appear before the court to answer some questions.
“Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata will not ask Dr. Bawumia questions till thy kingdom come. A time will come when it will be over and when it’s over that is what we are saying these are the people we would like to call,” he said.

He however said that the first petitioner of the case, Nana Akufo- Addo would be cross examined by Tsatsu Tsikata if the need arises.
