The second witness for the petitioner in the on-going election petition case at the Supreme Court, Dr. Michael Kpessa Whyte has said that he has no reason to deceive the court by telling a lie in the Supreme Court.
Dr. Kpessa Whyte took the stand as the second witness for the petitioner on Tuesday to testify. In his submission to the apex court, Dr. Whyte stated that the Electoral Commission boss, Madam Jean Mensah asked him and his NDC counterpart in the strong room of the EC to leave, which they did accordingly.
Counsel for the first respondent, Lawyer Justin Amenuvor in defense of his client insisted that the claim by Dr. Whyte which suggests that he was asked to leave the strong room by the EC chair is not actually what transpired.
Insisting that that was what transpired, Dr. Whyte said he had no reason to deceive the court, baring knowledge of the fact that he was under oath in court.
He said; “My Lords, we were instructed by the first respondent. I have no reason ever to just lie or deceive this honourable court if that was not the case. As I have indicated our leaving there was not in secret.”
