It is clear that the more we look deeply into the NPP’s rejection of the outcome of the Presidential elections, the more we see hidden truths about why the party’s leaders and supporters are the way they are today, and where they have dragged matters to.
It is their constitutional right to use the judiciary to seek redress in this case; and it is our constitutional right too to interrogate the implications of what they have set out to do and how they do it. As citizens, we expect that our country will be ruled by those who deserve the people’s mandate. That is why what the NPP has begun doing since it became clear that its Akufo-Addo couldn’t set foot on Canaan must not be lost on us.
Indeed, he was in Jerusalem before the elections but the Walls of Jericho didn’t fall for him to enter the Promised Land when the bugles were blown at the polls. The lawsuit at the Supreme Court seeks to unravel why. An obviously intriguing pursuit in the labyrinth of the law, isn’t it?
