Kweku Baako Jr. says Tsatsu Tsikata committed a ?gaffe of gargantuan proportions? when he singled out Justice Anin Yeboah and accused him of political bias in the hearing of the election petition case.
Mr. Tsikata, who led the governing National Democratic Congress? legal team in the case, made the accusation just two days after the nine-member Bench of the Supreme Court, including Anin Yeboah, pronounced its final verdict on the 8-month old trial.
According to him, Justice Anin Yeboah consistently took an opposing stance against the respondents in the case because his judgment was clouded by his political biases.
The former Ghana National Petroleum Corporation CEO said he was not surprised about Anin Yeboah?s lack of ?judicial balance? because he was appointed to the Supreme Court by former President John Kufuor of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Mr. Baako, Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Newspaper, however described the basis of Mr. Tsikata?s allegation as ?terminally unsustainable, completely inexcusable, absurd? and logically deficient.w
He told Accra-based Joy FM?s news analysis programme ?newsfile? that Mr. Tsikata necessarily needed to have provided convincing evidence to prove his allegations and accusations.
??There?s no sense in it. Please let?s not for one moment rationalise what he did. It?s a gaffe of gargantuan proportion?, he said.
