“Forgive me”, Kpessa-Whyte begs Supreme Court over ‘stupid’ tweet

A member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Michael Kpessa-Whyte is begging the Supreme Court to forgive him over a tweet that portrayed the apex court as “stupid”.

“Sincerely, the tweet was not done with the intent to scandalise, or denigrate a revered institution such as the Supreme Court of Ghana for which I have tremendous amount of respect and admiration.

“These are consequences I never intended, although I do accept responsibility that, I could have exercised better judgment in my choice of words,” the failed parliamentary candidate aspirant of the NDC said in a statement issued on Thursday (25 May).

The Supreme Court has summoned the university lecturer over his tweet to explain why he should not be cited for contempt of court.

“Please permit me to state unequivocally that I have no reason to slander our Supreme Court, and I hereby sincerely apologise unreservedly for any pain and discomfort my tweets may have caused the Chief Justice, the Supreme Court and the entire judiciary.

“I hereby retract the tweet in question; accordingly, the tweet has been deleted completely and I pray for forgiveness,” the statement added.
