CEO of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe has said Jean Mensa must mount the witness box to testify in the election petition for her own good.
He said Jean Mensa in the witness box will clear doubts on the credibility of the 2020 general elections.
“I would have thought that it would have enriched our development discourse to have the returning officer whose whole construct and being, has been to ensure transparent and fair elections, which in fact is their motto, to clear this doubt. In fact, she should have elected herself to come and just clear the doubt once and for all,” he said on Citi TV.
“For me, where this whole thing is built upon is that, yes, both parties may have triggers and that is why they were candid on saying that, none of them is the returning officer. The processes leading to the announcement of the results in spite of the admission of errors themselves were fraught with some kind of misunderstanding and that in itself is the clarity they seek,” he added.
Don’t forget, Franklin Cudjoe’s reactions come after the petitioner in the 2020 elections, John Mahama filed a motion to reopen his case in order to be able to subpoena Jean Mensa to mount the witness box to testify on the general elections.
