Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu has asked the petitioners and respondents in the pending election dispute before the Supreme Court to comply with the directives and the final ruling by the nine-member panel sitting on the case.
Making her contributions on Oman FM’s political programme on Wednesday, the NPP firebrand advised the two parties not to hold their hopes high because the verdict could take an unexpected turn.
To her, both parties should rather come to the reality that “once the court has decided, whether you like or not; you are enjoined to obey it and abide by it. It doesn’t depend on you to choose to obey it.”
She also explained that “it is possible that it (verdict) may not go according to their (petitioners) expectation and the court will tell John Mahama to remain in his seat. It is also possible for the court to order (President) Mahama to step down for Nana Akufo Addo (to rule as president).”
The outspoken NPP MP touched on the tenets that shaping the NPP, stating that the party has proven to the “entire world that we are peace seekers. We comply with the law; whether we admit or not, we will follow the structures laid down.”
She further appealed to the nine-member panel to “be fair and dispassionate in their enforcement of their own rules and regulations.”
