Tsikata using Mahama’s petition to write his book— Nana B reveals

One of the spokesperson in the ongoing election petition hearing for the second respondent, Henry Nana Boakye has revealed that Mr Tsatsu Tsikata, the Lead Counsel for former President John Dramani Mahama is using the Petition as a case study for his yet to be released book.

According to him, Mr Tsikata is seeking his own interest and not the petitioner’s due to his quest to have a law masterpiece.

Nana B revealed in an interview on Peace FM that Mr Tsikata was writing a book on Presidential elections and has decided to delay the ongoing court case in order to have more chapters in his book.

He noted that Mr Tsikata’s strategy was to drag the case and the more he does it, the many pages and chapters he can compile into his yet-to-be released book.

“His own people have told me he’s writing a book on Presidential petition which is very good. When it comes, I will be the first person to buy a copy because academic exercise helps law students.”

“I think because of the book that Tsatsu wants to write, he has laid aside the petitioner’s interest to have more chapters in the book he wants to launch.”

“Because, first, they sent interrogatories which were dismissed; that’s a chapter in his book. He also sought a review . . . so the review is another chapter in the book.

“For me, it appears the interest of the petitioner, himself, I’m not sure that what Mr Tsatsu is seeking but rather seeking his own interest because he is writing a book and wants more pages and chapters, so he wants to drag the case,” he added.

Mr Tsikata, in defending his client in the Election Petition, has made several applications which have been dismissed by the Supreme Court Justices.

First, it was an application to serve the Electoral Commission Chairperson, Jean Mensa some interrogatories but his application was denied by the court unanimously.

He then filed for a review of the application and the Justices dismissed it too.

After those dismissal, Mr Tsikata argued for Mrs Mensa to be in the witness box to account for her conduct during the 2020 Presidential elections but once again the Apex Court dismissed his invitation.

The court in giving its ruling said they cannot compel the EC to testify.

“Simply put, we are not convinced and will not yield to the invitation being extended to us by Counsel of the petitioner to order the respondents to enter the witness box to be cross-examined accordingly we hereby overrule the objection raised by the counsel for the petitioner against the decision of the respondents declining to adduce evidence in this petition,” Chief Justice Anin Yeboah declared as the Supreme Court.

Notwithstanding, Lawyer Tsikata remains resolute to defend his client, Mr Mahama who is the petitioner in the court case.

Lawyer Tsikata continues to show an unrelenting character as he has filed to reopen his already closed case in court.

“We will now seek your Lordship’s permission to reopen our case in order to have a subpoena on the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission. My Lords, we know that we can issue a subpoena without leave but since we have closed our case on the assumption that she will be (in the witness box) . . . so we intend to file a formal motion,” he said during Thursday’s hearing.

At first, one would say Tsatsu Tsikata was determined to win the petitioner’s case at all cost but Mr Boakye had different perspective on the issues that people did not know.
