CEO of the Atta Mills Institute, Samuel Koku Anyidoho believes one must have facts backing a case before seeking a legal redress.
The former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) claimed that if a case
is not supported by evidence, there is no need to take it to court.
He said this in a Twitter post on Monday, February 1, 2021 as he urged people to test evidence supporting
their cases before heading to court.
“If you don’t have a balcony, do not make a monkey your pet: if you don’t have facts to back your case, do not go to court oooo!”, he tweeted.

It is unclear if his tweet is linked to the Supreme Court’s pending election appeal, which challenges John Mahama’s presidential election results in 2020.
The General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, concluded his testimony yesterday after being cross-examined by lawyers of President Akufo-Addo.
Mr. Nketia is the first witness of the petitioner, John Mahama, in the ongoing election petition at the Supreme Court.
On Monday, he was confronted with video evidence of a press conference he organised after the December 7 elections.
While Mr. Nketia admitted declaring the NDC as majority winners in the Parliamentary elections, he denied ever declaring Mahama as the winner of the presidential election.
“My Lord, I have watched the video and I have watched it here, I standby every word, every punctuation, every sentence that relates to me Johnson Aseidu Nketia and there is nowhere unless we are watching a different clip, there is nowhere I indicated definitively that the first respondent [Mahama] has won the elections,” he stated.
“What I said is that we have won the majority of seats in parliament and that the petitioner [Mahama] as prosing for victory and that is precisely what has shown up in all the various speeches I have made which have been clipped together.”
Mahama and the NDC sought legal action after declaring the result of the 2020 presidential election as rigged.
