YAW APPAU, J.A.
The application before this Court is one praying for an extension of time within which to file notice of appeal against a default judgment entered against the applicant by the High Court, Mampong. The applicant was the defendant in the court below and a Senior Police Officer. What gave rise to this case was that the applicant purchased a vehicle from the respondent who was the plaintiff in the court below. He made part-payment and promised to pay the remaining amount within a certain period. When he was unable to pay, the respondent dragged him to the court below for recovery of the remaining sum, which was then thirteen million cedis (¢13,000,000.00). When the applicant was served with the writ of summons on 17/10/06, he posted it back to the Registrar of the High Court from which it emanated with an accompanying letter that read as follows: —
“Dear Registrar, I received your Writ which was in actual fact fraught with many mistakes. Kindly rectify the mistakes.”
