Former Deputy Minister of Health, Robert Joseph Mettle-Nunoo, the third witness for John Mahama in the 2020 Election Petition was expected to testify in court on Friday.

However, due to his medical condition, he was unable to mount the witness box at the Supreme Court.

The court, therefore, granted that his testimony is taken via Zoom from his residence in the presence of a designated court official.

Cross-examination did not happen because lead counsel for the 2nd Respondent, Lawyer Akoto Ampaw, raised objections to the witness’ statement.
