Supreme Court Dismisses Voters’ Case After NDC Refused To Present It Argument

There was drama at the Supreme Court on Thursday as renowned lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata refused to argue the NDC’s review of the voters’ register case.

According to him, he had just received documents filed by the Electoral Commission (EC) and was therefore unable to argue the case.

The Supreme Court has ruled that the EC can compile a new register as it excluded the use of birth certificate and existing voters card as proof of identification.

The case was heard by Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah and Justices Jones Dotse, Paul Baffoe Bonnie, Sule Gbagegbe, Samuel K. Marful-Sau, Nene Amegatcher, and Professor Ashie Kotey.

But the NDC filed for a review of the decision with Justices Yaw Appau and Mariama Owusu joining the panel.

They also filed a request for the case to be heard earlier than usual.

The court granted this request but Mr. Tsikata said he was unable to argue the case.

He said his junior Dr. Dominic Ayine has written to the Chief Justice suggesting that the case be heard during the vacation.

He also wanted time to file additional documents.

The court took the view that the request to file additional documents was not supported by law.

The Apex Court directed Mr. Tsikata to move his review application but he refused; saying he needed more time.

Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, therefore, urged the court to dismiss the case.

The court granted the request saying the review application was without merit.

Education Minister Reveals When Schools Will Reopen

Minister of Education, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, has said the reopening of schools in Ghana will be dependent largely on how the coronavirus behaves in the country.

Speaking in an interview with Berla Mundi on the COVID-19 360 on TV3 Thursday, August 13, Dr. Opoku Prempeh said, “we will go back to school if the virus allows us.” He explained that the decision will be based on the available science and data on the Covid-19 situation in the country.

“So depending on the science and data, we will reopen schools. We reopened schools for final years as they maintain social distancing,” he said. He observed when schools reopened for final students to write their examinations, the government suffered flak from people.

However, these same people, he said, are now calling for all schools to reopen. “Had it not been that the government was sound of what it was doing they would have given up. All these people saying we should open schools, those people will not be going to be there if we open and an incident happens,” he said.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh earlier tested positive for the coronavirus but was treated and declared healed. However, he said he is unsure whether he has fully recovered from the Coronavirus infection he contracted or not. He believed recovered enough to resume work.

It was an experience I have said repeatedly that I don’t even wish for my enemy.”

He mentioned that, it was after he experienced the disease that he came to the reality that, indeed, “Coronavirus is here with us”.

For him, Ghanaians must take all the safety protocols seriously as “it is not a situation I would want anybody to get into”.

He recounts that despite feeling a bit of malaise about 10 days before he was hospitalized, he got tested for the virus upon advice from close associates but the result came out negative.

He said after returning from his acclamation as the Manhyia South parliamentary candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), he decided to voluntarily take some tests at the UGMC, having gone there to visit a relative admitted for Covid-19.

He noted he was there for two weeks, during which same period he heard about the death of the Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie who also contracted the virus.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh confessed that he had the belief that he would survive after that close shave with death.
