“The NDC has a slim chance of getting justice in a court petition case” Felix Ofosu Kwakye


Former Deputy Information Minister under the National Democratic Congress in the John Dramani Mahama administration, in a tweet, has implied the party the judiciary system in the country belong as there have been so many instances to show how bias they are.

The NDC has made serious allegations against the the Jean Mensah led Electoral Commission claiming a rigged election and that the values they have is directly opposite to what was used in announcing the winner of the 2020 General Elections.

The flagbearer together with the party have rejected the results declared and have had series of conferences calling for a change in the declaration or a recount of the results. This in question has made people call out to them to send the case to court because the announced winner, President Akuffo Addo has been gazetted and can only changed through the Supreme Court rule.

Felix after hearing such suggestions people have thrown out there for them to resort to the judiciary, has rebuffed them because to him the judiciary system is biased and as such cannot be trusted.

Pointing to various legal cases and their outcomes, the politician who failed in his attempt to win the Abura Asebu Kwamankese seat maintained that justice will not be assured should they battle the NPP in court.

He made reference to the infamous Montie 3 who were pardoned by the President at the time, John Mahama after threatening to kill judges on a local radio station, Montie FM in the capital, Accra in 2016.

Radio host Salifu Maase (alias Mugabe) and his two panelists, Alistair Nelson and Ako Gunn, were sentenced by the Supreme Court to four months in jail each with an additional fine of GH¢10,000 after pleading guilty to charges of contempt.

Mentioning that the verdict was too harsh on these gentlemen, Felix added that the NPP have gotten away with even worse crimes.

Felix pointed to another case of members of the vigilante group, Delta Force affiliated to the NPP, storming the Kumasi Circuit Court and freeing defendants who were facing charges for causing disturbances at the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council.

Reports indicated that the Delta Force, in addition, vandalized some court properties and almost assaulted the Judge, Mary Senkire who ruled that they be remanded to appear in court on a later date in 2017.

Furthermore, the politician cited a more recent case of the controversial Kennedy Agyapong saying unprintable words about a judge who granted an injunction against him without allegedly conducting due diligence.

Even though Kennedy apologised to the Chief Justice, Judges and Magistrates for his outburst, Felix believed that the law let him off the hook too easily.
