Private legal practitioner, Lawyer John Ndebugri has opined that the best way Dr. Dominic Ayine can clear the air and make a strong case for himself and his party is to face the legal council disciplinary committee.
According to him, it would be in the good interest of the NDC and its MP to present their statement at the disciplinary committee to prove the Chief Justice wrong that he (Dr. Ayine) did no wrong during his submission than to be playing glitch tactics.
He asked whether the supporters of Dr. Dominic Ayine and that of the NDC would have used the same energy to rally behind a private legal practitioner who said the same thing without a political party.
This, he stressed that the submissions that the NDC and its’ members are raising in their press conferences, could equally be raised before the disciplinary committee hence why should they be playing ‘cat and dog’ tactics.
Speaking on Daybreak Upper East show on A1 Radio, Lawyer Ndebugri explained that he was once asked to face the disciplinary committee and there was nothing he could do but to obey so he does not see the reason, Dr. Ayine would not want to oblige to petition.
Failure to obey, Lawyer Ndebugri said, does not speak well of the legal system of the country as every sector has its rules and regulations to perfect its members hence political lenses should not be used in the subject matter.
Meanwhile, on Monday, 21 June 2021, Dr. Ayine’s on an 11-page response to the CJ’s petition that he still stands on his comment and did no wrong.
With a press conference addressed by the General Secretary of the NDC, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, noted that the party stands with the MP against “a campaign of judicial tyranny being waged by the Chief Justice of the Republic against lawyers who identify with the NDC”.
Mr. Nketiah said, the latest persecution of Dr. Ayine is part of a grand agenda by the current Chief Justice to intimidate and silence all dissenting voices who dare want to speak against some of the strange decisions that characterized the 2020 Presidential Election Petition.
