Stop demonising our lawyers before the Supreme Court– NDC warns Oppong Nkrumah, Nana B

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is warning Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and Nana Henry Boakye aka Nana B to desist from using the platform provided by the media to incite the Supreme Court against the NDC lawyers in the ongoing election petition hearing.

A statement issued by Kakra Essamuah, Director of Communications of the NDC states that the party has obsereved that in “recent times, the NPP team, led by Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has been using the podium offered by the Media to attack Counsel representing HE John Mahama in the case, and even going further to incite the Court against the former Deputy Attorney General, Hon. Dr. Dominic Ayine”.

The NDC bemoans what it describes as “inordinate delight” the NPP takes in belittling and insulting Counsel for Mahama and the NDC by constantly offering misleading commentary on the case and its lawyers.

By this conduct, the NDC considers “this persistent conduct of Hon. Oppong Nkrumah and Henry Nana Boakye and their surrogates as unbecoming of professional colleagues who have sworn to protect the ethics of their respected profession over and above partisan considerations. The Supreme Court exists to do justice fairly and squarely to all citizens irrespective of political colours, and to attempt to incite the Court against our noble lawyers is to debase the Court’s role and duty”.

The NDC has therefore cautioned the NPP to desist from demonizing their lawyers and act professionally.

“We accordingly comdemn in no uncertain terms this unfortunate conduct of the NPP to demonize our Counsel before the Supreme Court”, the statement adds.
