For reasons which have far reaching political implications than you’d want us to believe, you embarked on a surreptitious agenda of restraining John Peter Amewu from being sworn into office as the MP for Hohoe.
This cloak-and-dagger motive sends you to the Ho High Court to place an injunction on innocent Amewu which the judge granted.
This ex parte application and its successful execution sent you and your party members into uproarious jubilations, hailing the country’s justice system as being fair and just.
Your suit is challenged in the Supreme Court by the Attorney General. Your all-knowing, almighty, highly intelligent and most accomplished legal brain, Tsatsu Tsikata, was available to continue with your onslaught aimed at reducing the numbers of the NPP side so that you could push your agenda through in Parliament on 7th January, 2021.
Your lawyer was at his wits’ end as he found himself wanting, struggling to cope with the pace of Godfred Yeboah Dame, the Deputy Attorney General. His defensive line was completely shattered in the face of the defence mounted by the Deputy Attorney General.
The Supreme Court, by a unanimous decision, throws away your case by quashing what you convinced the Ho High Court to do.
Your supporters are on social media, writing dirges, accusing the Justices of the Supreme Court of having been compromised, saying most of them were elevated to that high office by President Akufo-Addo and, therefore, they have ruled in his favour.
You take your ominous rumblings of discontent to another level, saying that you knew beforehand that this is how the ruling would be. Why did you go to court in the first place if you had such a premonition?
If you believe strongly that your cases would not be fairly adjudicated, why walk into courtrooms with several of them?
You cannot buy our consciences with your affected afflictive outlook! We are way above the gullibility that sits comfortably amongst your supporters.
Stop disturbing our ears with your ‘We Knew They Would Rule Against Us’ mantra and go to court with solid and winnable cases instead of these wobbly ones!
