THE New Patriotic Party (NPP) has challenged the General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, to prove a forgery allegation against Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia or he would be cited for contempt at the Supreme Court.
Chairman of the NPP Constitutional and Legal Committee, Prof. Mike Oquaye, says the NDC General Secretary has, this time around, bitten more than he can chew by his peddling of mischievous falsehood.
Speaking in a radio interview with Kessben Fm in Kumasi, Prof. Oquaye stated that the NPP was ready to take on Mr. Asiedu Nketia for his denigration of the Supreme Court.
“He alleged Dr. Bawumia forged documents and presented them to the Supreme Court. We are daring him to point out in the judgment of the 2012 election petition where the Supreme Court captured this. This is denigration,” Mr Oquaye indicated.
Mr Asiedu Nketia, popularly called General Mosquito, recently alleged at a press conference in Accra that Dr Bawumia, during the 2012 election petition case, falsified various documents and presented them to the Supreme Court.
He told the nation the NPP vice presidential candidate had again falsified another document to the Electoral Commission (EC), asserting that this should not happen to a constitutional body such as the Supreme Court or the Electoral Commission, “otherwise our democracy will be in danger.”
Prof. Mike Oquaye said the NPP was prepared to drag Johnson Asiedu Nketia to the highest court to demand proof of his allegation since he had gone beyond bound ‘with his scandalous drivel.’
