A member of the National democratic Congress (NDC) communication team, Alhaji Halidu Haruna is asking whether the New Patriotic Party (NPP) still believes the Supreme Court can't be bribed.

The NDC man speaking on Asempa Fm’s Kukurantumi Programme queried whether the highest court in Ghana was bribed before a Member of Parliament (MP) in the party won a recent case at the courts.

“So should we say Afenyo Markins also bribed the judges before the case went in his favour…,” he queried.

His claim, he said was based on the widespread belief among the rank and file of the NPP that the NDC bribed the nine-member panel at the Supreme Court before winning the 2012 Election petition.

Ironically, Justice William Atuguba was the leader of the seven-member Supreme Court panel, which ruled on the District Level election process as unconstitutional and ordered its cancellation.

The petitioner in the case, Benjamin Eyi Mensah had Effutu MP, Alex Afenyo Markins as his lead counsel.

The victory for the NPP MP, he said, should give a sign that the Supreme Court and its judges are always fair in their judgments.

He was, however, not charitable to the lawyer for the EC, James Quarshie-Idun whom he described as weak.

Halidu Haruna indicated that, but for the brilliant show of legal prowess by NDC lawyers, Tsatsu Tsikata and Tony Lithur, the NPP would have won the Supreme Court case.
