A former Member of Parliament for Akwatia in the Eastern Region, Ahmed Mohammed Baba Jamal says he sees nothing wrong with the interpretation of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the new voters register by General Secretary of the opposition NDC, Asiedu Nketia.

The legal practitioner in an interview monitored by ABC News revealed that even the lawyers of the party after the orders were read by the judges fumbled for some time as they tried to fully understand the verdict of the court.

Being the official mouthpiece of the party who needed to speak to the party’s supporters and the media after the proceedings, Baba Jamal indicated that Mr Asiedu Nketia’s claims that the party had been vindicated by the ruling, was based on his limited understanding of the law as well as on the advice given him by the legal team.

With this, he justified that General Mosquito, as widely known in political circles committed no offence after his interpretation of the Apex Court’s orders turned out to be a palpable falsehood.

Supreme Court ruling “makes nonsense” of Ghanaians’ rights – IPRAN

“Even we lawyers, when the judges gave the ruling, it took us more than 15 minutes struggling to understand what’s the meaning of the ruling given by the Supreme Court. It got to a point that the court was about to go back to a session so we were compelled to leave the courtroom,” the former legislator said.

He added that “we were of the understanding that the voters’ card has been added because our accrued rights have been granted. The general secretary of the party when he came out needed to say something to the press. So when he says that and later it turns out that the order is completely different, what crime has he committed. It was his understanding at that time. The General Secretary as the mouthpiece spoke based on the preliminary advice given to him.”
