Justice Francis Y. Kpegah

Lawyer for Nana Akufo-Addo, Frank Davis has rubbished claims by Justice Kpegah that Nana Addo is an impersonator.

Frank Davis speaking to Radio Gold on Tuesday called the bluff of the former Supreme Court Judge and expressed doubts in his logic.

Speaking on the controversial issue of whether Nana Addo is a qualified lawyer or impersonating a certain W.A.D Akufo-Addo, Mr. Davis sought to address the loopholes in Justice Kpegah’s writ.

He read portions of the writ, saying Justice Kpegah “himself has stated that there is a certain W.A.D Akufo-Addo who was called to the Ghana Bar in 1975 with his number as number 1190, okay. The same Justice Kpegah who has brought out the writ says there is a certain William A. D, stands for William Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, who was called to the Ghana Bar in July, 1975. The letter that you said the General Council wrote, if you look at that heading, you will see that the name there is William Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“So, what are we talking about? (How can somebody) how can one person impersonate himself? Do we all understand what the meaning of impersonation literally? If you are impersonating, it means you are flaunting to be somebody who you are not. How can one person impersonate himself? ” he asked.

In his view, the missing certificate does not nullify Nana Addo’s qualification as a lawyer.

“If you own something or you possess something and you lose or for that matter it’s missing, does it take away the fact that you once upon a time owned something?” he asked.

The court will on April 23, 2013 hear the substantive matter of Justice Kpegah’s law suit filed against Nana Akufo-Addo.
