Nii Kwartei Titus Glover, New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Tema East says Ghanaians should repose confidence in the Supreme Court Judges sitting on the election dispute between three leaders of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the Election Commission (EC).
Speaking on Oman FM, Hon. Titus Glover called on the citizenry to support the Judges, because to him, the success or otherwise of the country depends on them as they prepare to give their verdict on the case.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, 2012 Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), his Running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and the party Chair, Jake Obetsebi Lamptey petitioned the Supreme Court to challenge the electoral results that saw the EC Chairman, Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan declare President John Mahama as victor in last year’s general elections.
After several weeks of legal battle between the Counsel for the petitioners and respondents; Electoral Commission, President John Dramani Mahama and the ruling National Democratic Congress, the nine-member panel set Thursday, August 29, 2013 as the date for them to give their verdict.
Prior to the court ruling, some political commentators and civil societies have called on the parties to accept the ruling irrespective of direction it takes and also, urged the loser not to go for a review.
In view of this, Hon. Titus Glover urged Ghanaians to “back the Judges, give them that assurance that Ghana is in their hands. If the nation will progress or retrogress, it depends on them. We should let truth reign. If somebody is found guilty, let’s tell the truth.”
