Lawyers for Nana Akufo-Addo and the Electoral Commission (EC) in the ongoing election petition case have indicated that they will not present any witnesses in their case.
Following the conclusion of the cross-examination of the petitioner, John Mahan’s 3rd witness, Rojo Mettle Nunoo, the defense lawyers were to open their defense by announcing their witnesses.
They however, unexpectedly announced that they will not call any witness.
Justine Amenuvor, representing the Electoral Commission (EC) in the case told the court that, “it is our case that we would not wish to lead any further evidence, and therefore we are praying that this matter proceeds under order 36 rule 43 and C.I. 87 rule 3 (5) and we hereby on that basis, close our case.”
Lead counsel for President Nana Akufo-Addo, Akoto Ampaw also made a similar request.
Akoto Ampaw argued that the petitioner has not been able to make a solid case in court hence such decision.
