One of the spokespersons for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the ongoing election petition case, Mr. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has noted that hearing exposed inconsistencies made by the petitioner, John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, the first witness for the petitioner, Johnson Asiedu Nketia only exposed these inconsistencies after failing to substantiate any of the claims that forced Mahama to file the election petition.
“We are of the view that today has been a big day in court and the big word today is ‘exposed’. You would notice that counsel on our side spent a lot of time exposing the inconsistencies and sometimes the outright falsehoods that have been put out by the petitioner (Mr. Mahama) and the witness who was in the witness box today,” Oppong Nkrumah told the press after proceedings.
“So when you juxtapose the earlier claims that they won and now what they are saying in the witness box today that they don’t know who won, you will realise there’s a discrepancy…One of the first things that the counsel on our side sort to do today was to expose the inconsistencies and sometimes outright falsehood by the petitioner and the witness,” he added.
