The lead counsel for John Mahama, the petitioner in the ongoing election petition hearing has said if the Electoral Commission Chair, Jean Mensa testifies to the truth, she will honour the God that she serves.
He said that Jean Mensa is a witness “who gave glory to God for what she was doing” and that she should assume the witness in honour of the God that she gave glory to in making a “purported declaration”.
“My Lord, the statement I am making is that it would honour that God if she would come forward as a witness of truth,” he added.
When asked by the Court in what capacity the EC Chairperson will be testifying, Mr. Tsikata stated that the EC Chairperson will be an adverse witness for the Petitioner. Mr. Tsikata argued that the EC Chairperson had every reason to vindicate herself by coming to testify.
He argued further that the EC Chairperson qualified as a witness to testify in the case. Mr. Tsikata concluded by reiterating that the Petitioner closed his case based on the representations of the EC Chairperson.
