Spokesman for the petitioner in the on-going election petition case, Dr. Dominic Ayine has expressed his disappointment at the spokesman for the 2nd respondent, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah for what he describes as inciting the apex court against him.
Dr. Ayine has in turn cautioned Mr. Oppong Nkrumah not to incite the apex court against him.
Mr. Oppong Nkrumah on Tuesday described Dr. Ayine’s statement where he used the explanation of the court having a predetermined agenda as preposterous.
According to him, his statement is a low blow to the judicial system in the country and should be condemned.
Reacting to Mr. Oppong Nkrumah’s statement, Dr. Ayine asked that he shouldn’t be misquoted for what he said.
He added that his comment had a different meaning from what Oppong Nkrumah sought to explain and said he had no reason to disrespect the apex court, having served as former attorney general. He said;
“I must say that I am severely disappointed in the Honourable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah…I am a senior lawyer to Kojo. Kojo should not take to always seeking to incite the court against me as if I do not know what I am saying. First of all, as a former deputy and a senior person at the bar, I know what it means to scandalise the highest court of the land. I have had no intention whatsoever of scandalising the Supreme Court of the Republic of Ghana.”
