Former Eastern Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Owusu Amankrah’s bid to stop the new regional executives of the party from holding themselves up as regional executives has been dismissed by the Koforidua High Court.

Jowak, as he is popularly called, sought an interlocutory injunction to annul the regional elections held on December 19, 2022, and prevent the executives from undertaking any activity in the region until the court decided the case. He claimed that he was the only one with the power under the NDC Constitution to organise the conference that got the new officers elected.

However, the presiding Judge, Justice William Osei Kufour, dismissed the application, stating that the reliefs lacked merit based on Article 18 (2) of the party’s constitution.

For the most part, the ruling was described as a relief to the party’s executives by the Eastern Regional First Vice Chairman, Ransford Owusu Boakye, and Deputy Regional Treasurer, Obibini Lartey.

The former Attorney General of Ghana, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, who represented the national body of the NDC, advised both parties to put the ruling behind them and work together towards securing victory in the 2024 general elections.

It is essential for political parties to be united and focused, especially in the lead-up to the general elections, to ensure that their candidates emerge victorious. A divided front can have devastating consequences on the outcome of the elections. Therefore, it is essential for the NDC to resolve any internal issues and work towards achieving their common goal.

The NDC has been a formidable opposition party in Ghana, and it is crucial that they maintain their position by working in unity towards the 2024 elections. The court’s ruling is a step in the right direction towards achieving this goal.
