EC did no wrong holding workshop if injunction was on a specific venue – Kofi Abotsi


A former Dean of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Kofi Abotsi has asserted that the Electoral Commission cannot be held accountable for proceeding with its training workshop in Accra if the injunction only specified a particular venue.

Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George secured an injunction against the Electoral Commission’s decision to hold a workshop at the City Escape Hotel in his constituency. In the ruling by the Tema High Court presided over by Justice Eugene Nyante Nyahdu, the EC was ordered not to carry through with the exercise in the Hotel’s Prampram branch.

“It is hereby ordered that the respondent and all persons claiming through the respondent (EC) refrain from holding the workshop or conference scheduled to take place at the Escape Hotel Prampram from the 24th of April, 2020,” Justice Nyadu ruled.

But the EC, despite the ruling went ahead with the training on Saturday at the City Escape Hotel, Airport, Accra leaving Sam George displeased, storming the place with some party members.

Speaking on Joy FM and monitored by ABC News, Kofi Abotsi said the EC did no wrong holding the workshop if the injunction was specific about the venue.
