The venerable Lead Counsel for the petitioner, John Mahama in the ongoing 2020 election petition, Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata will today, February 3, cross examine the chairperson of the the 1st respondent in the election petition, Electoral Commission of Ghana, Jean Adukwe Mensa.

Cross examinations on witnesses of the petitioner, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia and Dr. Kpessa Whyte were concluded after hours of extensively grilling of each of the witness on separate days in the Supreme Court.

It is however, the time for the witness of the 1st respondent who is the returning officer of the presidential election to be put into the witness box for cross examination which will be done by one of the finest legal brains in Africa, Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata.

Former President John Dramani Mahama has petitioned the Supreme Court, challenging the credibility of the 2020 general elections and the declaration of results made by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.

According to him, the irregularities in the figures churned out by the Electoral Commission on 9th and 10th December, 2020 make it not right to declare President Akufo Addo as the winner of the December presidential polls.
