The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has accused Lawyers for Nana Akufo-Addo and Co of making illogical arguments in Court to cover their unpreparedness for the hearing of their election petition at the Supreme Court.

Narrating what happened in court to the media the NDC general secretary said “the NPP’s argue is a ‘palm wine tapper’s’ argument; you [NPP] are alleging that there are irregularities in about 4709 polling stations and we [NDC] say let us know which of the 26,000 polling stations has got this irregularities so that when we are preparing we will be looking at those specific 4709.”

He also expressed surprise at the NPP, saying “I was surprised to hear that NPP say they are not alleging any fraud against NDC at all, but this is different from what they speak about on radio and other platforms; they describe us [NDC] as thieves, as people who have engage in fraud.”

“And then when they come here [court] and we want to talk about the fraud they say they have not allege any fraud at all. I think that they will have issues to sort out with their followers,” he added.

Lawyers for President, John Mahama and the Electoral Commission (EC) ON Tuesday made arguments in Court to support their request for Nana Akufo-Addo and two others challenging the 2012 election results, to furnish them with “further and better” particulars on their petition.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential Candidate legal team had argued against this and moved an application seeking leave of the court to serve an interlocutory on the EC to provide particulars of persons registered abroad.
