NDC Presidential aspirant Dr. Kwabena Duffour has discontinued his injunction suit against the party’s Presidential and Parliamentary primaries scheduled for May 13, 2023.
Lawyer for Dr Duffuor, Opoku Amponsah, informed the court that he had been instructed to discontinue the case, for which reason he had not filed the requisite documents.
The defendants did not oppose the application to discontinue the case.
The Judge, Justice Mariam Afful, accordingly struck out the suit as withdrawn.
The decision paves the way for the elections to be held on Saturday, May 13. Dr. Duffour filed the application, alleging issues with the voter’s album.
He claimed that he had not been furnished with an accurate list of persons supposed to participate in the primaries and wanted the court to put the elections on hold and have the party engage the candidates on a road map towards drawing up an accurate list of voters.
The NDC, however, described the suit as frivolous and incompetent. The party contended that it had rectified most of the errors identified by Dr. Duffuor’s campaign team.
A number of Party Executives were in Court.
The decision to discontinue the case is a welcoming news for the party. General Secretary of the party, Fiifi Kwetey, spoke to the media, expressing the party’s readiness and focus on the primaries.
Abraham Amaliba, one of the lawyers for the defendants, also spoke of the party’s focus going forward.
