A renowned Citi TV/FM journalist Umaru Sanda Amadu says his unlearned brain cannot understand the judgements of the Judges who sat on some Election Petitions brought before them.
The fearless, vocalist and brave journalist has expressed worry and a little disappointment in some Ghanaian judges.
In a statement posted by Umaru Sanda Amadu which was intercepted by Coverghana.com.gh, he said, “on Techiman South, the JUDGE said the people can’t be denied representation so let the NPP MP-Elect carry on until a determination is made. On Assin North, the JUDGE said the people be denied representation until a determination is made on the NDC MP-Elect.”
The position of the Judges baffles Umaru Sanda Amadu since the Law is one and should have same interpretation. “The law is interesting. I wish I could penetrate the brains of both judges because this one, my unlearned brain can’t understand 😕” He said.
He made the statement following the Cape Coast High Court injunction restraining the NDC MP elect James Gyekye Quayson from holding himself as MP-elect for Assin North over dual citizenship.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of Ghana has granted an injunction filed by the Attorney General Madam Gloria Akufo challenging the elegibility and Human Rights application filed against Hohoe Constituency MP elect John-Peter Amewu on Santrokofi Akpafu, Lolobi and Likpe (SALL) traditional areas case as granted by the Ho High Court.
Similarly, the Techiman High Court has earlier overruled similar case filed by NDC against Techiman South Constituency NPP MP elect Martin Agyei-Mensah Korsah, saying, the people of Techiman South need to have a representation in Parliament.
In Cape Coast High Court, James Gyekye Quayson is being accused of owing allegiance to Canada contrary to Article 94 (1) (a) of the 1992 constitution.
According to the judge, the issues raised against the MP-elect warrant full trial hence he needs to stop describing himself as MP.
Umaru Sanda Amadu is worried about the ruling given by the judges at different stages. According to him, he wish to penetrate the brains of both judges because this one, his unlearned brain can’t understand “
