Tsatsu's attack on Anin-Yeboah shows his arrogance – Jake

National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Jake Okanta Obetsebi-Lamptey has described Mr Tsatsu Tsikata as an "arrogant" person for attacking the integrity of one of the judges who sat on the election petition case.

"Mr Tsatsu Tsikata a very arrogant person; he's expressed his arrogance consistently everyday throughout the [court period]".

Mr. Obestebi-Lamptey said Lawyer Tsikata throughout the election petition case acted all knowing. "So far as he is the only person who knows everything and the only person who can be entitled to speak on any matter; he is the only one who is always right and never wrong...".

Speaking on Eyewitness News, the NPP national chairman said he is not surprised by comments Mr Tsatsu Tsikata on one of the nine judges who heard the election petition case.


Lead Counsel for the NDC in the election petition, Tsatsu Tsikata, has dismissed calls for him to withdraw the accusations he made against Justice Anin-Yeboah.

Mr. Tsikata said neither Justice Anin-Yeboah, whom he accused of political bias during the hearing of the case, nor former President John Agyekum Kufuor, who took offense following the comments, deserved any apology from him.

Last Saturday on TV3's news analysis program Hot Issues Mr Tsikata told show host, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, that Justice Anin-Yeboah, allowed his political affiliations to cloud his judgment during the hearing of the case.
