Accra High Court hearing on the disqualification of PPP Presidential candidate Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom threw up drama after lawyer for Nduom barked orders at the EC’s counsel.
Nii Ayikoi Otoo felt the need to re-echo the presiding judge’s order to Thaddeus Sory to sit down after Ayikoi Otoo had caught the judge’s attention and allowed to speak.
‘Sit down, you are my junior’ Joy FM court reporter Joseph Ackah-Blay reported Ayikoi Otoo as saying.
Thaddeus Sory shot back, saying he was not a rookie in court to be given such orders by the former Attorney-General.
“My lord draw his attention to the fact that so long as I stand here, I am not his junior. It is those who carry his books that he can describe as juniors” he reportedly responded.
But the judge repeated the orders to him to respect courtroom practices and sit down once his senior was on his feet.
