One of the eight seats in parliament being challenged by the New Patriotic Party is the Jomoro Electorate.
According to the current party deputy general secretary, Nana Obiri Boahen, the party has brought an action before the Sekondi High Court seeking to prohibit the NDC’s Dorcas Afo Toffey from becoming a Parliamentarian.
The position of the NPP is based on two factors that it claims are necessary for them to grant their appeals.
In an interview, Obiri Boahen told Neat FM that the MP’s citizenship is also an issue, apart from election fraud that benefited Dorcas Afo Toffey in the elections.
He announced that Afo Toffey has documentation that allow her to be a citizen of the United States of America and Côte D’ivoire, besides to being Ghanaian.
“There were discrepancies in the contest for Jomoro. In addition, the lady has Ivorian, U.S. and Ghanaian citizenship as well,” he said on Neat FM.
Obiri Boahen said that a committee of attorneys was designated to each of the eight cases by the party, with lawyer Frank Davies as the head of the team.
We have a legal team led by Frank Davies, who is part of the presidential team as well. I’m in charge of the investigation of Banda, so I can talk about that,’ he said.
Meanwhile, in separate High Courts, the NDC too has filed petitions questioning eight of the seats.
Hohoe, Techiman South, Essikado-Ketan, Tema West, Tarkwa Nsuaem, Zabzugu, Sefwi Wiawso and Tano South form the subsections.
