Jus like the General Secretary Of The National Democratic Congress(NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, A Senior Lecturer at the University of Ghana and NDC Member, Dr. Michael Kpessa-Whyte, and Robert Joseph Mettle-Nunoo were cross examined in the witness box some few days back for former President John Mahama in the 2020 presidential election petition hearing, the NCD However wished the Electoral Commission Of Ghana led by Madam Jean Mensa will equally mount the witness box to be cross examined.
According to the Counsel for John Mahama, Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata, Jean mounting the witness box to be interrogation is a key to the election petition case and it will help the court’s authenticity or otherwise of the EC’s results which make NPP candidate Akufo-Addo win the elections.
However, the wish of the NDC hasn’t be met as Madam Jean Mensa hasn’t been in the witness box over reason that, The Lawyer of the Electoral Commission believe on the strength of the case closed by the petitioner that, he thinks he does not need his witness in the box to be cross examine.

Accordung to Sammy Gyamfi, Jean Mensa, The EC chairperson and returning officer of the 2020 presidential elections manipulated the result in favor of the NPP and as a result, she feels she will be expose if she’s been interrogated at the court.
