DON"T MAKE UP STORIES!!

Come to think of it, the presiding officer may have actually been dyslexic hence his style of recording. This should not have been equated by the justice to "illiteracy". It never occurred to me until deGaulle raised this point.

It is not uncommon for dyslexics to use other means to record things in a way that they can understand better. This in fact, COULD have been one such occasion. Sadly in our Ghanaian school system, it is only now that dyslexia is being recognised and students who hither to were regarded as "stupid" or poorly literate are now better understood.

For the information of our general readers - Cher (musician and actress), Tom Cruise (actor/director), Lord Heseltine (British politician) Winston Churchill (former British Prime Minister) are or were all dyslexic and there is nothing wrong with being one except that it comes with a difficulty mostly in translation of language and writing which ought to be recognised. They are certainly not illiterates and if anything many dyslexics have accomplished a lot in life.
