The moderator of the Presbyterian church of Ghana, Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey, has stated that ministers of state and Ghanaians lambasting the Supreme Court over the jailing of the Montie FM trio are nation wreckers.

He said the nation is ruled by laws and cannot allow the misconduct of citizens.

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 Salifu Maase aka Mugabe, Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn.

The three were sentenced to four month imprisonment by the Supreme Court following contempt proceedings against them.

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

He said “A nation is an entity, a people ruled by law; so if there are any people who are a lawless society then they are doomed. A country like America, when you break the law even if you are the President or a Presidential candidate and they get you, you’ll go to jail. I hear some people are saying what the Judges did was not right. Look, threatening to kill a Judge, it has happened before in Ghana, whoever has issues with the sentence of these three people are nation wreckers who must be condemned and not entertained.”
Education minister Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang and minister of gender Nana Oye Lithur have signed the petition calling on president Mahama to implement article 72 and pardon the three.
