The host of Good Evening Ghana, Paul Adom-Otchere, has done some guesswork of the five persons likely to be used as witnesses by John Dramani Mahama in his election petition hearing at the Supreme Court.

As monitored by YEN.com.gh on the Tuesday, January 5, 2021 edition of his show, Adom-Otchere named Asiedu Nketia, Haruna Iddrisu, Dr Kpessa Whyte, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong and Rojo Mettle Nunoo as possible witness in the election petition case.

Adom Otchere is certain that since Asiedu is the general secretary and has granted more interviews on the petition, he was definitely going to be a witness on the case.

He is convinced Haruna Iddrisu as the Minority Leader with an interest in the Parliamentary situation especially the Techiman South case, would make a perfect cut for Mahama's witnesses

The show host also believes Dr Kpessa Whyte is important to the process because was in the EC strongroom where the collation and signatories were being made just as Rojo was.
