The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia has mounted the witness box to testify in the petition challenging the declaration of President John Dramani Mahama as the winner of the 2012 presidential election at the Supreme Court.

General Mosquito, as he is popularly called, is giving his evidence-in-chief to affirm his party’s position that President Mahama was legitimately elected in the December 2012 presidential poll.

He takes his turn after Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, the star witness for the petitioners, had completed his evidence-in-chief, cross-examination and re-examination which spanned the period April 17, 2013 to May 22, 2013.

General Mosquito has been given the power of attorney by the President to testify on his (President’s) behalf.

Mr Asiedu Nketia, who is the star witness for President Mahama and the NDC, on April 15, 2013 deposed to an affidavit in the form of evidence and started his evidence-in-chief last Thursday.
