Former Member of Parliament for the Ledzokuku constituency, Bernard Okoe-Boye has suggested that the National Democratic Congress [NDC] legal team needs therapy.
Oko Boye said the team needs to seek the services of a therapist and a psychologist or else they would continue to be charged with contempt of court.
According to the former deputy health minister, the case the petitioner brought before the Supreme Court lacks a solid foundation to make a strong argument and would likely go against them.
Oko Boye’s comments come after Dr. Dominic Akuritinga Ayine’s “predetermined agenda” comments after the dismissal of the petitioner’s motion to have his case reopened.
The former Ledzokuku legislator said if the court does not recommend the NDC legal team to see a therapist, it would go against them greatly.
“We need to have psychologist and therapist talking to the NDC team regularly,” Oko Boye said on the Good Morning Ghana Show on Metro TV
He added Ayine was emotionally charged when he was talking about the court's dismissal of Mahama's case.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Supreme Court has begun contempt proceedings against former Deputy Attorney General, Dr. Dominic Ayine.
This follows his accusations that the court had a “predetermined agenda” against the former president, John Dramani Mahama, the petitioner in the ongoing election petition trial.
Dr. Ayine, a member of the former president’s legal team had earlier said he would not be surprised if he was held for contempt.
“I won’t begrudge them,” the former Deputy Attorney General told an Accra-based Radio Station.
