Lawyer for the 2012 Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Frank Davis has rubbished the claims by Justice Kpegah that Nana Addo is an impersonator.
Frank Davis speaking to Radio Gold Tuesday morning, 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 some 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 is 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? How can Nana Akufo-Addo be impersonating himself?” he asked.
Also, explaining the impact that Nana Addo’s loss of certificate could have on his law practice, Lawyer Frank Davis stated categorically that the NPP Flagbearer “is and has always been a lawyer. So, if I lose my document and I write to the issuing authority that issued me with the document that for one reason or the other, I can’t find the document you issued to me but please, check your records and certify whether I am indeed a member of your association or whatever and that institution writes back to say that; yes, you are. What should be the fanfare?”
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 subtantive matter of Justice Kpegah’s law suit filed against Nana Akufo-Addo.
