Pius Hadzide has stated that, the conduct of the former President’s lead counsel, Tsatsu Tsikata could endanger the country’s stability.
He believes Tsatsu Tsikata and his colleagues want to drag the court’s reputation in the mud because their case has fallen.
John Mahama petitioned the Supreme court to challenge the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. A former deputy Information Minister, Pius Hadzide, says Tsatsu Tsikata’s mastery of grammar does not mean the law is in his bosom.
Hadzide expressed disappointment in the venerable legal luminary’s choice of words in describing some of the rulings of the Supreme court in the ongoing election Petition trial.
According to Mr. Hadzide, the posture of the lead counsel for the former president, the petitioner in the trial is endangering “our collective stability”.
He therefore urged the legal team of the former president to not bring the bench down with them whilst they’re going down because the case presented before the apex court is weak.
“The NDC has no case and by their conduct, they have established same” he added.
Meanwhile, the former president’s legal team is urging the disconsolate members of the NDC to have trust in the strength of the petition before the Supreme court.
