Lawyer Akoto Ampaw’s performance in court received some backlash, especially on social media. However, renown leading member of the New Patriotic Party(NPP), Gabby Otchere-Darko had a contrasting opinion. He rather commended the lawyer for a brilliant work done in court.

From Mr. Otchere-Darko’s point of view, Former President John Mahama’s petition is an empty and pointless one. He is therefore pleased that Lawyer Akoto Ampaw worked towards exposing him.

“Akoto Ampaw did a professional job today at the Supreme Court. His questions were germaine, approach meticulous and elicited answers that were wholly exhaustive in exposing the case of the petitioner as empty and of no material blow to the declaration of Dec 9, correction of Dec 10, or any other corrections based on any “moving targets” of numbers that the petitioner claimed and sought to rely on,” Gabby Otchere-Darko wrote on social media.

“His task was simple: to prove to the court that no matter which figures you use, which alleged vote padding you delete, even if you accept all the numbers challenged or alleged by the petitioner, Nana Akufo-Addo still clears the over 50% hurdle as required by the 1992 Constitution. So, you may ask: if that’s the case, then why is John Mahama in court?” he quizzed.
