In order to back up the argument they were making in court, the petitioner’s camp was firmly agitating for a cross-examination of the chairman of the tribunal.
Check out the ruling summary.
Depositions in the affidavit against interrogatories are not capable of compiling the respondent
No provision has been made in the constitution or legislation to demonstrate that the chairperson of the EC is subject to various rules which are contrary to existing rules of procedure and established practice.
The case of a petitioner stands or fails on the strength of the case and not the respondent’s evidence.
Cases such as the Sakande one are different from the present case.
The Court cannot force a party to provide proof
From every sign, the expectation of the complainant to receive a lot of evidence from the chairman of the commission has been dismissed.
Many well-meaning Ghanaians added their voices to the call to be cross-examined by the commissioner.
The petitioner’s legal team would certainly be very upset, as some called for a national holiday on the day of the cross-examination of Ms. Jean Mensah.
Since the able judges understand what they are doing according to the laws of the land, one can not make many remarks.
When the petitioner went to the supreme to file his case, many found it needless, which many did not understand. But from every indication, the petitioner’s case filed at the supreme court lacks the requisite substance to even warrant the noble judges’ attention.
Ayew Brothers, Partey To Miss Black Stars AFCON Qualifier Against South Africa
Black Stars coach Charles Kwabla Akonnor is likely to be without some of his key players based in the United Kingdom ahead of the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifier doubleheader against South Africa and Sao Tome later this month.
Black Stars captain Andre Ayew, Crystal Palace duo Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlupp, Thomas Partey, Tariq Fosu are likely to miss the game should their clubs block their move during the international break.
As part of the UK COVID-19 protocols, anyone that returns from countries on the Red List must quarantine in an airport hotel for 10 days, with no exemptions for elite athletes which many Premier League managers and coaches have raised concerns and are unhappy about.
Most coaches at this point in the season are not willing to release players for the upcoming international break due to the COVID-19 risk and quarantine regulations.
Thus clubs have the sole autonomy whether to release players or not which is backed by FIFA’s current regulations on releasing players amid the pandemic.
The Black Stars coach with the possibility of missing out on invited players is preparing with a squad dominated by locally based players ahead of the double-header.
The team broke camp on Wednesday and will reassemble after the league matches this weekend.

He further said he is confident that the ministers will work together with him to ensure progress for the country.
“The entire national followed keenly your individual interactions with the Appointments Committee. In those sessions you exhibited your capacity to act as ministers of state for all to see and justify to the county the confidence I have reposed in you to serve in government”
“I am confident that together we will work to realize the vision of the mandate given to me by the Ghanaian people in the victory of 7th Decemenr2020, a victory which yesterday, 4th march was unanimously upheld in the lucid well-considered judgement by a 7-member panel of the Supreme Court presided over by the Chief Justice,” the president said.
Nana Akufo-Addo further urged the new ministers to demonstrate leadership that will move the country forward and help the government achieve its vision.
“I urge you to provide leadership that will ensure that the work which we are embarking on, benefits the progress of our nation and help raise the living standards of our people. That is why we are here and that is why the Ghanaian people voted for us,” the president said.
He encouraged the ministers to always ensure broad consensus in the manner in which they implement decisions while in office.
Prior to delivering his address, Nana Akufo-Addo led the 28 new ministers to take the Oath of Allegiance, Oath of a Minister and the Oath of Secrecy.
The Ministers were subsequently presented with their instruments of appointment to symbolize their appointment before signing the oath book.
