Court Puts NPP Elections In Volta Region On Hold

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Volta Region will have to wait for at least 10 days to be able to decide whether their regional elections will be held or not.

A Regional Chairman aspirant, Kofi Boateng, who was disqualified has secured an injunction on the election scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 21 at Hohoe.

Mr Boateng says he was disqualified unfairly just to give some candidates the free way to win the election.

Speaking to the media, Nelson Kuma Oye, a spokesperson for Mr Boateng confirmed Thursday’s injunction from the Ho High Court

“The court adjourned the case and gave us an order to serve the defendant and we did that, and when they mentioned the case this [Friday] morning, they were not in court so the court granted the injunction stopping them for 10 days,” he added.

Citing a foul play in the disqualification of Mr Boateng, Nelson cautioned that: “The judge made them know that if they go ahead, they will face the consequences. So that was the ruling this morning.”

The NPP leadership in the region is yet to comment on the issue.

The candidates vying for the possition are Douglas Kirk Wagba; Rev. Johnson Avuletey, the Regional Organiser, Makafui Kofi Woanyah; a financier of the party, David Agubiga; and a private legal practitioner, Ken Anku.
