Dela Edem, a member of the Communication team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has opined that flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the 2012 Presidential election, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo would have been a better choice in the witness box than his running mate; Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
Today, Thursday marks the third day hearing of the Election Petition started. As part of proceedings, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia appeared in the witness box to present his evidence led by lawyer of the petitioners, Philip Addison on the second and third day.
Speaking on the backdrop that Dr Bawumia is an economist and a banker, Dela Edem said Nana Addo would have been a better option because he is a lawyer.
According to him, the former Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana is not articulate enough, ‘and that is affecting his performance in the witness box’.
“If Nana Addo had mounted the witness box, it would have been better because he is a lawyer; Dr Bawumia is not…There are a lot of errors in the Affidavits that was presented by the petitioners and I believe that will be proven by the NDC lawyers”, he told Kwami Sefa-Kayi in a discussion on Peace FM’s morning show, Kokrokoo.
