Nana Ama Dokua Asiamah Adjei

A Koforidua High Court (Court Room 3) presided over by His Lordship Justice Senyo  Amedahie has dismissed a suit filed against two Akropong Constituency impending elections aspirants, describing it as unmeritorious

The plaintiff, Adum Acheampong, a former  NPP Constituency Chairman of Akropong  Constituency was for the second time absent in court when the case was called.

Also absent was his Counsel.

 A representative of the Plaintiff sought an audience of the court and pleaded for an adjournment as he claimed the plaintiff was a bit under the weather but the court rejected the plea for another adjournment.

The suit challenged the eligibility of Julius Akuffo and Linda Dankwa to contest for any position in the Constituency on the tickets of NPP.

The court found no merit in the claims against the defendants and has accordingly dismissed the suit for want of liability.

The Defendants, NPP and the two others, Julius Akuffo Djan and Linda Darkwa who were represented by Lawyer Gary Nimako Marfo were however present in court.

Dismissal of Injunction on Constituency Election

In a related development, the Koforidua High Court (room 4) in a case presided over by His Lordship Nana Yaw Gyamfi Frimpong has dismissed an injunction placed on the Akropong North Constituency elections.

The injunction was filed by two petitioners, Emelia Awuku of Larteh Akaade Number One and Godfred Ampadu of Daakye Akropong.

Regardless, counsel for the defendants, Gary Nimako Esq. insisted the case be properly be dismissed by the court for sake of clarity and directions.

The presiding judge accordingly dismissed the injunction suit paving a way for the conduct of the long-awaited Akropong Constituency NPP elections.
