Renowned legal practitioner, Tsatsu Tsikata is currently being dragged on social media particularly microblogging site Twitter for losing the John Peter Amewu trial to the Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Dame.
The Supreme Court of Ghana has today January 5, 2021, dismissed the injunction placed on the swearing-in of Hohoe MP-elect John Peter Amewu by the Ho High Court.
The Apex Court said that the Ho High Court did not have the jurisdiction over the matter, hence the decision to quash the injunction.
The injunction on Amewu's swearing-in, as MP-elect for Hohoe was filed by Tsatsu Tsikata on behalf of the National Democratic Congress.
Ghanaians on Twitter particularly sympathizers of the New Patriotic Party are hailing Godfred Dame for putting Tsatsu Tsikata to the sword in the Supreme Court.
Some of them seemed to suggest that Tsatsu Tsikata's defeat is the beginning of the end of the renowned lawyer.
"In the space of 24hrs, Godfred Dame bruised the ego of Tsatsu Tsikata, apparently the man who claimed he knew the law more than everyone in Ghana. In all 3-0 defeat to the NDC. The biggest defeat is imminent in the election petition. Watch this space....Dame is in the mood," one Twitter user with the name Nana Show Boy tweeted.
Another wrote that "Tsatsu Tsikata floored by Godfred Yeboah Dame in a unanimous verdict. WHO SAY MAN NO DEY?"

Tsatsu Tsikata - 0
Amewu for the win!
In 1980, Tsatsu suffered a 7-0 defeat in the hands of Akufo-Addo in court. Today, he’s suffered another 5-0 gargantuan humiliation in the hands Godfred Yeboah Dame. pic.twitter.com/bQrRwE4k9O
When they start attacking the SC Justices, remind them;
1. Justice Appau, President of the panel, was appointed by— Fatimatu Abubakar (@Fatimatu_A) January 5, 2021
2. Justice Torkonoo, member of the panel said in open court, she’s friends with Tsatsu Tsikata & his family
3. The Courts’s decision was UNANIMOUS
Our elders say "if u play with ur dog, it licks ur mouth". Otherwise who is this NPP sympathizer, Kokobeng to tell Tsatsu Tsikata to get serious as a Lawyer bcos of Amewu's case? When Tsikata started practice, where were you?We know the composition & know what the outcome wld be.— Jojo Bruce-Quansah (@BruceJojo) January 5, 2021
Tsatsu Tsikata was good and did well but he ain't God to be all-knowing or to be magicians. The results as it stands— Kwame Trigger??????????????? (@the_EAmensah) January 5, 2021
Godfred Dame 5 - 0 Tsatsu Tsikata
All NDC sympathizers should stay cool and know this too shall pass ????
Justice George Buade and senior Tsatsu Tsikata Esq did a great disservice to themselves and the NDC to place an injunction on Hohoe MP Elect Hon. John Peter Amewu.
He who enters the court first doesn’t automatically win the case wai.????????????— ÑÿÇ-gÛÿ BEHIND Ä FÆÇÊ MÆŠK???? (@alcantara_san) January 5, 2021

Tsatsu Tsikata really bruised the egos of the SC judges.— MD8 (@md_boye) January 5, 2021
For the records, Tsatsu Tsikata Esq taught all the Judges who sat on the case of Amewu. He taught them Law at the University of Ghana. Stop comparing infantile Godfred Dame to him!— Andy Yidana (@andyyidana) January 5, 2021
