NPP founding member Dr Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe has signed the petition requesting the President to exercise his presidential powers of mercy over the Montie three saga.
Mr. Tamakloe reportedly signed the book in his home in Accra Friday evening.
Also signing the petition is education minister Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang.
The petition book was opened after lawyers of the jailed three officially kick start the process to request a presidential intervention in the four-month jail term handed the contemnors by the Supreme Court.
Host of Montie FM’s political talk show ‘Pampaso’ Salifu Maase, popularly known as Mugabe, and two panelists, Alistair Nelson, and Godwin Ako Gunn both of the National Democratic Congress were jailed four months by the Supreme Court on Wednesday for contempt.
Since their jailing, members of the NDC who have described the four-month jail term has harsh, have mounted pressure on President John Mahama to pardon them or risk losing votes in the upcoming election.
