‘Sir John’, Adorye Contempt Summoning “Lacks Tact” – Baako

Kweku Baako Jr. has described as “tactless”, the Supreme Court’s summoning of opposition General Secretary Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, also known as ‘Sir John’ and another party Communicator Hopeson Adorye for making contemptuous comments in connection with the election petition trail.

According to the New Crusading Guide Editor-in-Chief, the timing of the Court’s invitation of the two New Patriotic Party members is “surprising”.

“I’m really surprised that this matter has resurrected”, he said on Saturday, adding that: “To be honest with you – while I’m not challenging the authority of the Supreme Court to actually proceed in this direction because of consistency – I think the decision, and I hope this is not contempt, if it is I apologise ahead of time; I think it lacks tact, tact; I think something is missing”, Kweku Baako said on Joy FM’s news analysis programme newsfile on Saturday.

After cautions by the Host of the programme Samson Lardi Ayenini and fellow discussants Nana Ato Dadzie and Chris Ackumey about the likelihood of the comment landing him in trouble, Mr. Baako pointed out that: “…I have no fear for imprisonment. I’m over it. I just want you to know that when it comes to prison, I have no fear”.
