Lead Counsel for the Petitioner, Laywer Tsatsu Tsikata in his submission, deployed his possible best to impress the panel. He argued strongly on the necessity to reopen his case which was initially closed.
Tsatsu Tsikata also alleged that the EC failed to use the form 13 which was conditionally provided.
Read his submission below;
“We have a testimony which shows that the form [form 13] which ostensibly the Chairperson had acted on prior to the declaration was not in fact the form that is provided for in CI 127. That testimony was before this court. Respectfully, it will be unfair and unacceptable for the Chairperson to deny the opportunity to admit or deny this important issue.”
“It is therefore our respectful submission that none of the points made in the affidavit in opposition provide a justification for our not being allowed to reopen our case. Our lordships in the interest of achieving substantial justice, you allow us to reopen our case.”
Interestingly, the counsel for the 1st Respondent, Lawyer Justin Amenuvor raised an objection to the request by the petitioner.
