Supreme Court ‘red card’ won’t stop me – Sammy Awuku

A deputy Director of Communication for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku has indicated that despite the ruling of the Supreme Court judges, he will continue to monitor the proceedings and provide input where necessary.

“I can suggest [that] like a footballer who has been red carded, I can still watch it from the stands… It will not affect my workings for the New Patriotic Party and its teaming supporters. I still remain resolute to the cause and agenda of the party.”

The President of the 9-member panel of judges presiding over the hearing of the election petition case, Justice William Atuguba banned Mr. Awuku from attending further hearings of the case.

This follows the latter’s description of the judges as “hypocritical ad selective” in a radio discussion on Accra based radio station, Peace FM.

Speaking on Eyewitness News on Wednesday, Sammy Awuku pledged his support for the petitioners and their lawyers “and as and when I’m also called upon to offer my services to the party, I’m also available to do that.”

He insisted that he had a clear conscience when he made those comments, “and I had the courage to also face up to my actions as well… maybe my choice of words and the approach I used; it’s unfortunate that mine has been determined to be the worst one. But I accept it in good faith.”

According to him, although other individuals had passed more damning comments about the ongoing election petition case, he will “leave that to the judgment of the general public.”
