Arrest David Annan - Sammy Awuku
A Deputy Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party, Sammy Awuku has called for the immediate arrest of a member of the NDC legal team, David Annan.
His call followed Mr. Annan’s assertion that the current Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Wood would have been ‘murdered’ by now if NPP were still in power.
The NDC legal team member was reported to have made the wild allegation during a panel discussion on Radio Gold’s weekend current affairs programme, Alhaji and Alhaji.
According to lawyer Annan, three justices including the late Chief Justices Abban and George Kingsley Acquah died during the erstwhile Kufuor-led NPP.
Responding to him in an interview with Citi News, Awuku described Annan's comment as genocidal and called for his immediate arrest.
“If this infantile, ridiculous, distasteful and unpalatable comment is coming from a legal advisor to the Mills-Mahama led NDC administration he should not be spared; if this was coming from within the NPP, you will see the police massaging and moving all their forces and machinery just to go and apprehend the person,” he said.
He added, “This is not surprising coming from a myopic mind like that of David Annan because he often gets his facts wrong and that is why he as an advisor to the Mills administration on legal affairs they continue to lose cases and it looks like they will continue to lose more.”
He bewailed what he described as the NDC’s deliberate attack on the judiciary and said it was becoming endemic in their body politics.
“These were the same bunch of people who ensured that we lost three high flying High Court Judges which opened a dark chapter in our country’s history.”
Awuku recalled the NDC National Chairman, Dr. Kwabena Agyei’s comment that there were so many ways of killing a cat in reference to the number of high profile cases the government had lost in court.
“We also have the Chairman of this brigade saying that there are so many ways of killing a cat when he was peeved with the way they were losing cases in the law courts; in fact these kinds of comments are not helpful especially when we are all warming ourselves towards this year’s elections and I maintain that this infantile comment is coming from David Annan whose mind is not stable,” Awuku pointed out.
