Volta Regional NPP Elections Hit By Injunction

The Ho High Court has placed a 10-day injunction on the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Volta Regional Delegates Conference scheduled for Saturday.

The injunction was secured by a disqualified aspirant, George Kofi Boateng, Friday.

Mr Kofi Boateng, a former Regional Secretary of the party was disqualified alongside three other aspirants by the vetting committee chaired by Bob Charles Agbontor last month.

He thus filed an ex-parte motion in which he stated that he was unfairly disqualified from the contest.

The court presided over by Justice Eric Baah granted the injunction.

The plaintiff in an injunction application dated April 16, 2018, stated that the party’s regional and national hierarchy failed to respond to a petition he presented over two weeks against his ‘unfair’ disqualification, prompting him to exercise his right through the court.

He told Graphic moments after the court ruling that he only got to know of his disqualification on social media platform, WhatsApp, on March 30 which was later confirmed to him by the chairman of the vetting committee, Mr. Agbontor, with no reason assigned.
