The alleged comments did not go down well with the ruling National Democratic Congress, with the party subsequently asking the police to investigate the legal practitioner.

But in his response, Sam Okudzeto said his comments were misconstrued.

"If they don’t know the English language, they should come and I will teach them. I was educated there and I know the language. If I tell somebody that if you do this it is your own funeral, is that a threat? If they don’t understand there are professors at Legon they should go and ask what the meaning of the word. If somebody says if you want to do this it’s your own funeral, it means the consequences is yours, not mine. Is that a threat?” he asked.

“If they had called me...I would have taken the time to explain to them,” Sam Okudzeto added.

He, however, stressed that the president will be undermining the work of the judiciary if he gave in to the pressure mounting on him to grant the presidential pardon to the three Montie FM contemnors.

The petition book was opened by pro-government group Research and Advocacy Platform (RAP) to collect signatures of Ghanaians to implore the president to free the three contemnors.

The three were sentenced to four months in prison by the Supreme Court following contempt proceedings against them.

The contempt proceedings came after the three threatened the Supreme Court judges who sat on the Abu Ramadan and Gary Nimako versus the Electoral Commission case.
