#NPPConference: Court dismisses Afoko’s injunction application



An Accra High Court has dismissed an injunction application by the NPP’s suspended National Chairman, that sought to stop the party from discussing his removal at the Sunyani extra-ordinary Conference.

According to Mr. Afoko, if the injunction application is not granted to him, it will cause him an irreparable damage especially if the party indeed goes ahead to remove him from the party.

But the judge, Justice Anthony Yeboah in his ruling said the plaintiff had not convinced the court enough as to how he could suffer an irreparable damage, if  the application is not granted.

He further indicated that Mr. Afoko could return to the court for redress if he is removed at the conference.

Paul Afoko filed the ex-parte motion at the Human Rights Court, seeking to place an injunction on a purported process to remove him as Chairman of the party at Saturday’s conference.

Mr. Afoko claims to have information that the Sunyani conference would take a decision to completely dismiss him from the party, hence his resolution to seek the injunction.

The suspended Chairman has already sued the party at the Accra High Court over his suspension which he insists was unconstitutional. That case is still pending.

Meanwhile the party’s Communication Director, Nana Akomea, has told Citi News that Mr. Afoko is not on the agenda of the Sunyani conference.
