It appears the NPP is closed at snatching another NDC’s Parliamentary Seat through the court process as emerging information indicates that the MP-elect for Jomoro Constituency holds three dual citizenship.

According to the Deputy General Secretary of the party, Nana Obiri Boahen, the party has filed a suit at the Sekondi High Court seeking to prevent Dorcas Afo Toffey of the NDC from holding herself as Member of Parliament.

Other reports state that the NPP’s stance is premised on two things that it believes are enough to grant them their pleas.

Obiri Boahen told Neat FM in an interview that aside from electoral malpractices that benefitted Dorcas Afo Toffey in the elections, the MP’s citizenship status is also an issue.

He revealed that aside from being Ghanaian, Afo Toffey has documents that qualify her to be a citizen of the United States of America and Ivory Coast.

“For Jomoro, there were irregularities in the election. Apart from that, the woman also has Ivorian, US and Ghanaian citizenship,” he said on Neat FM.

Obiri Boahen said that the party has assigned a team of lawyers to each of the eight cases with lawyer Frank Davies as the head of the team.

“We have a legal team headed by Frank Davies who is also part of the president’s team. I’m in charge of the Banda case so I can speak to that,” he said.

Meanwhile, the NDC has also filed petitions at various High Courts challenging eight of the constituencies.

The constituencies include Hohoe, Techiman South, Essikado-Ketan, Tema West, Tarkwa Nsuaem, Zabzugu, Sefwi Wiawso and Tano South.
