Despite the interlocutory injunction granted by an Accra High Court to stall the National Democratic Congress’s upcoming parliamentary and presidential primaries, the party has assured its delegates that the party’s legal team is working assiduously to ensure that the elections come off as scheduled.
One of the aspirants, Dr. Kwabena Duffour is seeking to postpone the elections due to his grievances concerning the elections album. According to Dr. Tuffour’s team, the album sent by the party is inconsistent and inaccurate.
The Team further indicated that several attempts to get the party to rectify the anomalies in the album have fallen on deaf ears hence the decision to injunct the elections.
After the court granted the injunction, the party is confident that the May 13 Congress will be held as scheduled hence all party supporters and sympathizers must stay calm.
In a statement released by the party on Wednesday, General Secretary of the NDC, Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey noted that, “we want to urge party members and the people of Ghana to remain calm as the Party, through its legal team, works to resolve the temporary challenge.”
The statement further explained that, “while urging calm among our rank and file, we wish to assure that the party as at April 20th, 2023 had made available the full Delegates List to all presidential candidates in line with our commitment stated in our guidelines that, this Primary Document, would be furnished to all presidential candidates.
“The party is therefore confident that, this temporary challenge will be quickly overcome to pave way for the holding of the primaries on schedule,” the statement read.
“It is our expectation that we shall all put the larger interest of our great party ahead of all considerations, knowing that the good people of Ghana are eagerly looking up to our party, come December 7, 2024, to rescue this nation from the current national collapse,” it added.
