The Executive Secretary of Anchoring Democracy Advocacy Movement Ghana (ADAM-GH) Mr Azubila's observation so far on the 2020 elections petition. Are the judges really interested in the merit of the case or only Concern on timelines C I 99?. There is public perception that, most of the judges hearing this elections petition case were appointed by President Nana Addo's Government as the electoral commissioner Mrs Jean Mensah who exhibited unprofessionalism since her asuption of Office leading to the case pending in court, which we wouldn't want to go into details. We are leaving in a regime where most INDEPENDENT Institutions like Ghana Police Service and Ghana Armed Forces misconduct themselves by killing innocent unarmed Ghanaians in favour of the ruling Government. The actions and comments of Some of the judges in this 2020 petition case is making most Ghanaians confused as whether this case can restore Ghanaians confidence in our INDEPENDENT Institutions. You are adjourning court from today 20th to 26th January 2021and yet talks about expedition, I don't understand. The former EC Chair Dr Kojo Afari Gyan in 2012 was scrutinized left right Centre and Ghanaians expect Mrs Jean Mensah to go through same scrutiny but the ruling Yesterday in the SC seem to be protecting Mrs Jean Mensah from answering quetions concerning her own actions which Ghanaians are not comfortable with.
* As a civil society organization that anchors proper Democratic prinsciples and ensures good Governance, we fully agree with the lead council for the petitioner Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata that "Justice can not be sacrificed for expedition".
The whole world is watching the court procceedings and i think the actions of our judges speaks volume about the INDEPENDENCE of our Institutions and a justification of why we are in court today. The supreme court is our last hope so far as the Institutional independence and the future of Ghana's Democracy is Concern. The petitioners should immediately come out with their next line of actions after this court case whether good or bad, to seek Justice to prevent any negative future precedence in our Democracy. We don't want Government now or Government in future uses and manipulate our State Institutions with impunity just because they have Political power. Political parties must not be given the oppotunity negatively to retrogress our growing Democracy.
