Controversial social media commentator and political activist, Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as Kwame A Plus has descended heavily on the Lawyer Akoto Ampaw (lead counsel) of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) in the ongoing election petition.
The founder of The People’s Project(TPP) took to social media to question the legal prowess of the lead counsel of NPP.
According to him, the NPP is said to have the men but to him, he doesn’t see Lawyer Akoto Ampaw to be one of the men the party claim to have.
In a Facebook post, he wrote:
NPP has the men. That is a fact. Please is Akoto Ampaw one of the men or the leader of NPP loyal ladies 😅😅😅😅😅
Rawlings and Akufo Addo became friends before he died. Be nice hahahahaha. Don’t come and insult la 😆😆😆😆 I’m not feeling well 😂😂😂😂
Respected lawyer, Akoto Ampaw is representing President-elect Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the election petition filed by former President John Mahama.
Mr. Akoto Ampaw was a key cog in the President’s team of lawyers that challenged the 2012 election results at the Supreme Court.
John Dramani Mahama on December 30, 2020, filed a petition at the Supreme Court challenging the outcome of the presidential elections.
In a statement after filing the petition, the NDC which he represented in the 2020 elections said: “The Petition was filed pursuant to the party‘s audit of the 2020 Presidential results and extensive consultations with the National Executive Committee and Council of Elders of the party.
