The National Democratic Congress says it is unfazed by the evidence provided in affidavits by petitioners in the controversial election petition case which is before the Supreme Court.

Victor Kojogah Adawudu, a member of the legal team of the NDC which is also the third respondent in the case, said the affidavits by the petitioners is nothing but a rehash of unfounded allegations in the earlier petition filed by Nana Akufo-Addo, flagbearer of the NPP, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, vice presidential candidate of the NPP and Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, Chairman of the NPP.

President John Mahama who is first respondent, the Electoral Commission which is the second respondent, and the NDC, are yet to file their defence but Adawudu maintains the NDC is not at all intimidated by the evidence provided by the petitioners.

He also stated in an interview on Citi FM that the evidence provided by the petitioners falls below expectation.

He questioned the intention by the petitioners to use power point presentation during trial, saying the Court has over ruled the use of such a technology.

“They are saying they will use power point in their presentation [at the court] and it is something the court has said it will not accept.

“What they have done now is that they are just rehashing what they have said in the petition.”

He said they will react accordingly to the affidavit filed by the NPP.
