Mr Rojo Mettle-Nunoo, the third witness of the petitioner in the ongoing election petition hearing, has told the Supreme Court that former Electoral Commission boss, Afari Gyan used to give chances for errors committed to be rectified however, the current chair, Madam Jean Mensah never allowed that.
“Dr Afari Gyan gave opportunity for errors to be corrected,” he said during cross examination in court on Monday February 8.
he also told lawyer for the 1st Respondent the Electoral Commission (EC), Mr Justine Amenuvor to give him a fair chance to respond to questions posed to him.
According to 3News, Mr Amenuvor had told him, “You have testified that you made a mistake in certifying the Ashanti regional sheets, is that correct?
In answer, Rojo said “My Lords, I have indicated that I made a mistake on the Ashanti summary sheet declaration in the EC’s strong room for very specific reasons.”
“I am not arguing with you, I am not arguing with my Lords, I am saying you have to give me a fair opportunity to answer the question as the witness, I must be given a fair opportunity to answer the question.”
In one of his explanations, he said “You asked me an initial question that do I know the procedure and the process in the strong room and I said that the regional results are the results submitted to the strong room should not just include the summary.
“It should include the 275 constituency results that make up that summary, You cannot present the summery without the justification of the summary.
“So logically the summary is certified in terms of by the representative so the presidential candidate in the strong room.”
