NPP injunction case ‘mischievious’ – Godfred Dame

A member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) legal team, Godfred Dame has described as mischievous, the case in which two members of the party are seeking an injunction on the NPP October 18th congress.

Two members of the NPP, Rexford Agyei Frimpong and Oppong Kyekyeku sought an order against the National Council to fix a new date for the congress.

Speaking to Citi News, Godfred Dame said “it is curious that members of the NPP are relying on known NDC lawyers to push for a postponement of the NPP congress meant to elect a presidential candidate for the 2016 elections.”

An Accra Fast Track High Court has however set October 3, to rule on the application.

The court application follows calls from flagbearer aspirants, Alan Kyerematen and Addai-Nimoh that the party’s leadership should reconsider the date for the congress.

The two say the October 18 date will not give them ample time to reach the over 140,000 delegates across the country.

The last time they were in court, counsel for the plaintiffs pleaded for more time to study the response from the party against their suit.
