According to Mr. Richard Asenta Yeboah, the goal of this petition is to make sure that some transparency is shed into the matter, and to "further update the good people of Ghana" on matters concerning this case.

According to the gentlemen's - Mr. Yeboah - petition, allowing cameras into the courtroom would boost confidence in the legal system in making sure that Ghanaians see due process being followed. He also mentioned that the move would cull instances of the media spins that Ghanaians are, so often, used to seeing.

Saying end the usual media spin that characterizes court room reporting and throw more light on the matter especially the incessant tantrums and accusations of Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome to the effect that the apex court of the land, the Supreme Court has sidestepped the constitution and has rather chosen to persecute him.”

The one and only precedent - when a camera feed has been allowed in the Ghana Supreme Court - was when the New Patriotic Party presidential candidate, Nana Akufo Addo, challenged the 2012 presidential election results in the ape court.
