P.K.Sarpong, an active social media commentator and staunt member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) says Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata usually esoteric legal terminologies and flowery language adorned with his affected English being employed in his delivery.
Whispers from the Corridors of the Thinking Place, P.K.Sarpong siad, the legal prowess of Tsatsu Tsikata, we were told, would be experienced during his cross examination of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
According to him, people talked of Tsatsu Tsikata as being so exceptional that he was matchless when it came to the law.
Hoping against the improbable hope that Tsatsu Tsikata would delight us with his so-called special skills in law, our hopes were dashed when he proved to be an ordinary customer.
P.K.Sarpong indicated that, Tsatsu Tsikata just meandered his way through the process without impressing us. At the end of the day, the judgment of the Supreme Court did not depend on whatever he did.
Making reference to the 2012 petition judgement, he said, Justice Atuguba and his team concluded that the law wasn’t material at the time as they ruled in favour of then President Mahama.
“Jean Adukwei Mensa is likely to mount the witness box today. Opposition elements are expectant of a showdown when she clashes with Tsatsu Tsikata. He said.
“They say Tsatsu would dismantle Jean Mensa and that would make the whole world know that indeed Tsatsu is a gem and John Mahama had a case. We don’t expect to see anything less than his usual esoteric legal terminologies and flowery language adorned with his affected English being employed in his delivery.” He explained.
He believes that, It would be the same boring but mundane usage of jargons whose meanings add nothing to the empty petition brought before the Supreme Court.
P.K.Sarpong again said, Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata may try to intimidate Jean Mensa but she is one resilient person who knows her way around in the legal profession since she is a lawyer.
“Nothing will come out of his cross examination because there is no meaty substance in the petition they wasted the Supreme Court’s time with.”
