It said the convict had fore knowledge of the security implications of his statement and that his comment put the President’s life in danger.
Before convicting the Pundit, Mr Lord Delvin Essandoh, who held brief of substantive Counsel, Jerry Avernorgbo, prayed the court to hand down a non-custodial sentence because Bulldog was a father of four and well-known member of society.
According to Mr Essandoh, Bulldog also had some health conditions.
The counsel also drew the attention of the court to the fact that the charge preferred against Bulldog was a “misdemeanor”, adding that the convict had shown remorse and learned his lesson during the trial.
The prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Simon Apiosornu, said on January 11, 2021, the police intercepted a video recording of a programme on United Television (UTV).
The prosecution said in the said video, Bulldog was seen and heard saying, “The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo will not finish his term in office. He will run away if he failed to pay the deposits of Menzgold customers.”
It said on January 12, 2021, Bulldog was handed over to the Police by the National Intelligence Bureau for further investigations.
The prosecution said during interrogation, Bulldog admitted having made those comments in the said video when same was played in his presence.
It said Bulldog explained that during the show, he and other guests were arguing where he made the statement in jest and that he had no ill motive behind same.
