A Sekondi High Court presided over by Justice Dr Richard Osei Hwere has ordered the Member of Parliament for the Jomoro Constituency in the Western Region, Dorcas Affo-Toffey, to produce documents supporting the renunciation of her Ivorian citizenship within 10 days.
The High Court has quashed an application by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for it to declare as “no case” an application by one Joshua Emuah Kwofie, seeking to declare the election of Dorcas Affo-Toffey as null and void.
In the wisdom of the High Court, there is merit in the application by Joshua Emuah Kwofie, praying it to annul the results of the 2020 parliamentary election for the Jomoro Constituency.
When the High Court sat on Tuesday, June 22, Justice Dr Osei Hwere indicated that the defendant, Dorcas Affo-Toffey, had accepted that she had an Ivorian citizenship but renounced it before contesting.
He, therefore, ruled that it will be appropriate for her to be given the opportunity to produce the evidence and should do so in the next ten days.
