The third witness of the petitioner, Mr Robert Joseph Mettle-Nunoo has told the Supreme Court that he was offered tea during collation of  electoral results at the Secretariat of the Electoral Commission (EC) in December elections.

This follows a question by the lawyer for the first Respondent, Mrs Jean Mensa,  during Cross examination at the Supreme Court on Monday, February 8.

Mr Justin Amenuvor stated that during the collation in the strong room Mr Mettle-Nunoo was busy at the reception  drinking tea and biscuits.

Mr Mettle-Nunoo indicated amidst laughter from persons in the court room that he indeed offered tea but not with biscuits.

“My Lords, I was offered tea, I was not offered any biscuits,” he stated.

Mr Amenuvor further indicated that he left the strong room on his own free will, which he did not accept, saying “this is not correct.”

He further told the court that the Chair of the First Respondent, Mrs Mensa was fully aware that she instructed the representatives of the petitioner in the strong room to leave before the announcement of the final election results.

“She knows she directed us to the petitioner, she knew that she told us she will give us escort,” Mr Mettle-Nunoo claimed.

He further told the court that former Chair of the Electoral Commission (EC), Dr Afari Gyan gave representatives of the various presidential candidates in an election in the strong room opportunities to correct some mistakes before the final declaration of the results.

However, Mr Mettle-Nunoo alleged that Mrs Mensa never gave fair opportunities to the representatives to address issues pertaining the elections.

“Dr Afari Gyan gave opportunity for errors to be corrected,” he added.

Mr Mettle-Nunoo who looked a bit upset called for a fair opportunity to answer the questions during cross-examination.

He said Mr Amenuvor was not given him the opportunity to answer his questions to the best of his (Mettle-Nunoo’s) knowledge.

Mr Mettle-Nunoo alleged that Mrs Mensa was a liar and she was telling lies by not admitting that he was sacked together with his colleague Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte.
