Ashanti Regional Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sam Pyne has slammed Dr. Michael Kpessa-Whyte, former National Service Secretariat boss and a witness for former President John Mahama, the petitioner in the 2020 presidential election petition over his (Kpessa-Whyte) testimony before the Supreme Court.
Dr. Kpessa-Whyte on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 mounted the witness box to testify for former President John Mahama and during his cross-examination told the court the EC Chairperson, Jean Mensa instructed him and Robert Joseph Mettle-Nunoo to convey a message to the petitioner and then declared the results in their absence.
He, however, indicated before the court that he did not speak personally with the EC Chairperson and that the EC Chairperson’s instruction was delivered to him by another person.
He said; “My Lord, the second respondent (Jean Mensa) instructed us to leave the strong room and consult with our flagbearer on some irregularities. We were looking at results coming in region by region for it to be compared with the values on the regional summary on the screen and this process never happened.”
Speaking on Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”, Sam Pyne questioned the witness statements of Dr. Kpessa-Whyte.
He took the Dr. Kpessa-Whyte’s statements with a pinch of salt, describing his words as ”Kwaku Ananse story”.
“If this Kwaku Ananse story is not by the fire side which was played by Maame Dokono, would we have taken this story to court?”
He also ridiculed him for making grammatical errors while being cross-examined.
