NPP’s Ashanti Regional Chairman, Chairman Wontumi has made a request to be the lead lawyer in charge of representing President Akufo-Addo in the ongoing election petition at the Supreme Court.
Chairman Wontumi is making an earnest appeal to the lead counsel, Akoto Ampaw, to give him the opportunity to the lead the case against the National Democratic Congress (NDC). He believes the NDC has no case and he can surely come out victorious.
“I will plead with the lead counsel for the president, Akoto Ampaw, to leave the case for me so that I handle it because from what I’ve seen, I can easily handle the case,” he said on Wontumi TV’s Nsempa Fie on Saturday.
He also added that Tsatsu Tsikata, lead counsel for the NDC and former president John Dramani Mahama is overhyped and the proceedings so far have shown how weak of lawyer he is. He said that for Tsatsu Tsikata to ask whether the results of the election where transmitted by the NCA, exposes him as a weak lawyer who is slow at learning.
The court proceedings for the petition filed by John Mahama are still ongoing as the NDC and their leader push through for the Court to order a rerun of the election as neither candidate obtained the required 50 plus one to be declared winner.
