Asiedu Nketia denies saying Mahama won the 2020 election during cross-examination in court yesterday.
On Monday, the NDC General Secretary was confronted with video evidence of a press conference he organized after the December 7 elections.
According to him he never stated at a Press Conference that Mr. Mahama won the elections.
Mr. Nketia is the first witness of the petitioner, John Mahama, in the ongoing election petition at the Supreme Court.
Answering questions under cross-examination by Mr Akoto Ampaw, counsel for the second respondent (Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo) at the Election 2020 Petition hearing, the General Secretary of the NDC said “My Lords, that was not in my witness statement”.
He said he made it clear to the public that the NDC had won majority seats in Parliament and same would give the Petitioner upper hand in the presidential results.
“My Lord, I have watched the video and I have watched it here, I standby every word, every punctuation, every sentence that relates to me Johnson Aseidu Nketia and there is nowhere unless we are watching a different clip, there is nowhere I indicated definitively that the first respondent [Mahama] has won the elections.
“What I said is that we have won the majority of seats in parliament and that the petitioner [Mahama] as prosing for victory and that is precisely what has shown up in all the various speeches I have made which have been clipped together,” he stated.
