Courts Affirms Adjei Korsah as MP-elect; Boots Out NDC Techiman South Injunction

Published

NDC

A Wenchi High Court in the Bono Region presided over by Fred Nawura has dismissed an application for Injunction of the swearing-in of the Member of Parliament(MP)-elect for the Techiman South Constituency.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said that it won the Techiman South Parliamentary election but the Electoral Commission and the NPP connived to rid them of the success chalked in the election.

The largest opposition has allegedly provided evidence to back its claims that the party’s candidate Christopher Bayere Baasongti won the seat from the NPP.

However, the Electoral Commission insists that the NDC never won the seat like they are making some sections of Ghanaians believe.

Ahead of the swearing-in of Members of Parliament(MP)-elect, the NDC applied for an injunction on the swearing-in of the NPP Candidate Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah

 

But a Wenchi High Court has dismissed the application that will prevent the process from going on.

 

In his judgement, the trial judge is quoted to have said” I shall refuse the Ex Parte injunction application. I think the people of Techiman South need a representative at the swearing-in. To injunct the 1st respondent will be unfair. At the end of the trial, if it is established that the election was not done properly, I shall make my orders. I hereby refuse the application”

How Asiedu Nkatia Caused The Downfall Of NDC- Popular NDC Member Reveals

The Supreme Court of Ghana rejected John Dramani Mahama’s election petition for lack of substance. Mahama is the NDC’s Presidential candidate in the 2020 election.

When Johnson Asiedu Nketia, Principal Witness One, was cross-examined, the Justices found several loopholes in his answers during the two-hour judgment given by Chief Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah last Thursday, March 4.

According to Chief Justice John Dramani Mahama, who described Johnson Asiedu Nketia as the Petitioner’s “star witness,” the Petitioner was not in court “to question the validity of the figures or data provided by the Chairperson of the 1st Respondent,” which is why in his testimony, he did not include any data to refute that of the 1st Respondent.”

“His assertion was that the Chairperson’s initial figures contained errors, which his party, the NDC, pointed out in a letter addressed to the Chairperson on the 9th of December, 2020, prior to the declaration,” he continued. The 1st Respondent, on the other hand, did not invite them to participate in correcting the incorrect figures or data, but did so unilaterally, in violation of articles 23 and 296(a) and (b) of the 1992 Constitution.”

Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah then read exchanges between the petitioner and the second respondent, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who explained why the judge refused to order a re-run.

The Petitioner presented John Asiedu Nketia, Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte, and Robert Joseph (Rojo) Mettle-Nunoo as witnesses, but the Supreme Court of Ghana dismissed Dr Kpessa-and Whyte’s Rojo Mettle-testimonies Nunoo’s as “fanciful stories.”
