Commenting on the charges proffered against the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe said on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' show that the matter should not have been taken to court considering what has been said by President Akufo-Addo in the past and nothing happened to him.

“This matter is a matter that should never get to the court. We are all in this country and our President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo met NPP party members and said something that in Atiwa, we showed a little of our colours; basically glorifying violence which took place in the Atiwa by-election at the time,” he argued.

He stressed that “nobody said they were taking Nana Addo to court to prosecute him for whatever he said to his party members”.

He however admonished President Akufo-Addo to think of the ultimate peace of the country as a leader and not reduce serious business like criminal prosecution to making the NPP and its foot soldiers happy and excited, as this will destroy the sacrosanct office of the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General.

“ . . We are reducing a serious business like criminal prosecution to making a political party and its foot soldiers feel happy and excited, then we are destroying the sacrosanct office to prosecute . . . the ministerial powers which the Constitution allows the President to control, the only one which the Constitution makes it clear is the article 88; the office of the Attorney-General. It is such an important constitutional office . . . that the makers of the Constitution gave a lot of respect to that office,” he indicated.

Meanwhile, an Accra High Court hearing the case of Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has adjourned it to May 16, 2019.

Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo appeared in Court on Tuesday over a leaked tape involving him in the company of his lawyers: Abraham Amaliba, Tony Lithur, Dominic Ayine and Edudzi Tamakloe, as well as some kingpins of the NDC including former President and Presidential Candidate of the NDC, John Mahama.
