Former Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Michael Omari Wadie, is unenthused by the conduct of counsel for the first and third respondents in the ongoing election petition case.
Speaking on Okay fm, Omari Wadie said he was surprised to hear Tony Lithur defending the third respondent after Tsatsu Tsikata had explained to the Supreme Court the cause of the delay; adding that it was a well-worked out ploy by the respondents to go through the petitioners address.
“Acclaimed astute lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata cannot convince Ghanaians that he could not finish his address within the two weeks which the Supreme Court ordered due to technical fault…it is a calculated attempt to get some clues from the petitioners’ address...both Tsatsu and Tony Lithur are blockheads who cannot even write their own addresses without picking ideas and inspiration from the petitioners',” Omari Wadie said.
Touching on the 30 minutes allotted time to each party to orally address the court, the former NPP Constituency Chairman pointed out that the petitioners have a solid case which is why they needed just 20 minutes to present their address, but “strategically the respondents have succeeded in getting 1 hour 30 minutes to defend their bad case.”
“We are not perturbed at all by this strategy,” he added.
