New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has told National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama to hold his peace if he’s not ready for the trial of his own case in the ongoing 2020 Presidential election petition.
This comes after Mahama, through his legal team, filed for a stay of proceedings of the Election Petition at the Supreme Court, praying the court to halt hearing on the main Election Petition until a determination is made on his request for review of an earlier determination by the Court.
Reacting to this on Twitter, Gabby called out the former President to stop employing delay tactics in the trial and halt the whole process if he is not ready.
If you are not ready for the trial of your own case please don’t start! A plaintiff, applicant or petitioner who uses or manner of delay tactics, is that one too a litigant with a cause?,” he wrote on Twitter.
John Mahama and the NDC are in court challenging the results of the 2020 Presidential polls.
He maintains that neither he nor President Akufo-Addo attained a clear majority during the polls because of the omission of the Techiman South constituency from the declaration of results.
