Dr. Micheal Kpessa Whyte, the second witness for the petitioner challenging the December polls results has told the Supreme Court that he did not personally speak to the Electoral Commissioner during the national collation.Dr. Whyte made this statement today at the supreme court during cross examination, he further explained that, while working with another colleague, Rojo Mettle-Nunoo at the EC strong room on December 9, Jean Mensa ordered them to go and seek a conference with the 2020 NDC flagbearer, John Mahama.
”And she did also indicate that the reason she was asking us to do so is for all the stakeholders including the NPP, Peace Council and others could be invited to ensure that we had a credible result before the announcement of the winner is made,” he said.
According to him, the Form 13, they were given did not have any space for them to indicate should they have any disagreement with the figures.
The form is used to register regional results obtained by all candidates contesting the presidential election.
One of the justices asked whether that is not a dereliction of duty on their part, but Dr Whyte said they trusted the EC Chair and held what she told them in good faith.
Dr. Whyte then said that, they were not in the strong room to take instructions from the EC Chair they took the instruction the EC Chair gave us seriously.
