NPP Regional Office awash with various campaign banners

The High Court in Ho presided over by Justice Eric Baah has on Friday placed an injunction on the upcoming Regional Delegates Conference of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) scheduled for Saturday April 21, 2018.

The 10-day interim embargo on the conference, at which new regional Executives of the party would be elected, was as a result of a writ filed at the court by a disqualified Chairman aspirant, Mr. George Kofi Boateng, who was unhappy with the decision of the vetting committee to eliminate him out of the contest.

A situation, he noted came  as a surprise to him, since he did not receive official communication to that effect, except for a verbal confirmation from the committee chairman.

He added that, efforts to seek redress through the party structures were unsuccessful,  reason for his resort to the law court for justice.
