Korku Anyidoho wants Bawumia blamed on Montie trio predicament

Korku Anyidoho, a deputy general secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress says he plans dragging Mahamudu Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s vice-presidential nominee to court for failing to provide further evidence to back claims that Ghana’s voters register contained many names of Togolese nationals.

He therefore asked Ghanaians to lay the blame at the door step of Bawumia for the cause of the predicament of the jailed Montie trio on contemptuous statements against the Supreme Court.

He claimed that it was Bawumia’s assertions that resulted in Abu Ramadan and Evans Nimako heading to court which resulted in the Montie panelist and host finding themselves in trouble from their comments on the matter.

Anyidoho claimed that if Bawumia had not initiated his call for a new voters register in which he provided "forged documents" to the EC, all this episode would not have happened.

He stated on Friday that he was bracing himself up to drag Bawumia to court for him to justify his claims on the voters register.

He claimed Bawumia promised to provide more evidence to back his claims but for several months, that evidence was yet to be brought.

He described as “deceit of public officer’ the behavior of Bawumia for forging documentation to deceive the EC on his claims that Togolese nationals were on Ghana's register and ought to be punished.

Anthony Karbo, a deputy communications director of the opposition NPP political party said the NDC deputy scribe, Anyidoho had no basis for his argument and would only waste his time in court.

The Supreme Court last Wednesday, July 20 sentenced two radio panelists, Alistair Tairo Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn and programme host, Salifu Maase, alias Mugabe to four months’ imprisonment each for threats against the court.
