MAHAMA HIMSELF PLANNED AND ORCHESTRATED LEGAL SUITS AGAINST HIS ELIGIBILITY TO CONTEST 2020 ELECTIONS.

MAHAMA HIMSELF PLANNED AND ORCHESTRATED LEGAL SUITS AGAINST HIS ELIGIBILITY TO CONTEST 2020 ELECTIONS.

It is not astonishing that, in recent times, Former president John Mahama has hired, paid and facilitated certain individuals within the NDC to file seperate legal suits against him in the High court to challenge his eligibility as to whether or not he is eligible to contest for the upcoming 2020 general elections.

The most recent amongst the suits is one which was filed by the former Secretary to the main opposition National Democratic Congress in the Trobu Constituency in Accra, Mr Edmund Palmer who filed a suit against former President John Mahama challenging his eligibility to stand for re-election as the party’s flag bearer and subsequently, its presidential candidate.
In his writ, Mr Palmer prayed the High court to stop Mr Mahama “from pursuing his bid to be elected as a flag bearer/presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress in his capacity as a former president of the Republic of Ghana, without the permission of Parliament.”
Additionally, he is praying for “an order of perpetual injunction restraining John Mahama from purporting to seek re-election howsoever as president of the Republic of Ghana without the permission of Parliament pursuant to Article 68(2), 68(3), 68(4), 68(5), 68(6),68(7) and 68(9) of the 1992 Constitution.”

I would like to state categorically clear and in no uncertain terms that, the writ filed by Mr. Palmer and several other writs filed against the former President questioning his eligibility are all cooked, masterminded, planned and orchestrated by the former president himself just to test waters and to play on the intelligence of Ghanaians.
This is because every lawyer or whoever who seeks to genuinely question the eligibility of former president and by doing so seeking an interpretation from the constitution and declaration would have done so by filing the writ at the Supreme Court rather than the High Court since the High court has no jurisdiction to interpret or make such declarations.
It could however be concluded by a reasonable man that, this case would eventually be thrown out since the High Court hasn’t been clothed with the jurisdiction to entertain matters of this nature.

This delibrate act by the former president and his advisors is to block or cause any impediment to any legitimate suit which may genuinely seek to question the eligibility of the former president to contest the general elections.
I would thereby urge all well meaning Ghanaians to start taking note of this diabolic tactics and more upcoming diabolic formations of the former President John Dramani Mahama widely known as The Incompetent One (Mr. TIO).
