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.
Mr. Boateng, a former Regional Secretary of the party was disqualified alongside three other aspirants for the regional executive elsctions by the 3-member vetting committee chaired by Mr. Bob Charles Agbontor on last month.
In an ex-parte motion filed at Ho High Court for an interlocutory injunction, he stated that, he only knew the disqualification through a Whatsapp Messenger platform on March 30,2018 four days after he appeared before the vetting committee.
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.
Meanwhile, Voltaonlinegh.com can confirm officials of the NPP are going ahead with preparations for the conference at the St. Francis College of Education campus at Hohoe.
Sources, no injunction notice has been served on the party and as such the activities for Saturday will still go ahead as scheduled.
