Jean Mensah served me tea but not biscuits – Mettle-Nunoo | Watch Video

Tell a friend:

The third witness for John Mahama in the ongoing election petition at the Supreme Court has revealed that he was served tea by the Electoral Commissioner when he went to consult her on some irregularities he had observed during the collation of results.

Rojo Mettle-Nunoo who took his turn on Monday to testify for the NDC said claims that he was offered biscuits and tea and had just a friendly chat with the Electoral Commissioner are as indicated by the lawyer for the first respondent Justine Amenuvor are inaccurate

“I was served tea but not with biscuits,” Mr Mettle-Nunoo said to laughter in the courtroom.

In a feisty and tempestuous cross-examination, Mr Mettle-Nunoo clashed with the lawyer of the first respondent on several occasions.

Answering a question on whether he was temperamental and rude, Mr Mettle-Nunoo said: “I have a temperament for fairness, a temperament for wanting to tell the truth and fighting for what is right.”

He further told the court that former Chair of the EC Dr Afari Gyan gave representatives of the various presidential candidates in the strong room opportunities to correct some mistakes before the final declaration of the results.

However, he said, Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa who is the current chair of the EC, never gave opportunities to the representatives to do so

“Dr Afari Gyan gave an opportunity for errors to be corrected,” he said during cross-examination.

With a reported ill-health, the witness who had his witness statement filed on Thursday was cross-examined by lawyers of the respondents on his 32-paragraph witness statement which had five paragraphs expunged.

The Supreme Court last week struck out portions and paragraphs of the witness statement of Rojo Mettle-Nunoo, a third witness for former President John Mahama.

According to the panel chaired by the Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah, those paragraphs are struck out as having no basis in law.

Out of the 23 paragraphs objected to five were granted which are portions of paragraph 4, and the entirety of paragraphs 5, 6, 7 and 18.

Mettle-Nunoo was one of the two agents in the strongroom of the Electoral Commission.
