A Bole District Magistrate Court has placed an interim injunction on a demonstration by the National Democratic Congress in the Savannah region on Friday, 18th December, 2020.
According to the Magistrate Court presided over by his Worship P. A Cudjoe, the NDC is ordered to stop the demonstration scheduled on Monday, 21st December, 2020
The injunction notice signed by the Court Registrar Moro S. Zida said “This court doth grant the application and the National Democratic Congress Party, Savannah region is HEREBY ORDERED and RESTRAINING from embarking on intended demonstration slated on Monday the 21 st Day of December 22 at Central Gonja District, Buipe”.
The decision was made as a result of an interim injunction application brought against the NDC in the Savannah region by Superintendent Kwame Nimo of the Buipe District Command of the Ghana Police Service on Friday, December 18.
The applicant gave evidence regarding the intended demonstration which is to take place in Buipe on Monday would pose difficulty for commuters and others who will come to the town because of the market.
The court however ordered the party to carry on with its demonstration as it intends except Mondays.
“IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT the intended demonstration slated on 21st of December 22 should be rescheduled to other days but not any Monday, ORDERED ACCORDINGLY”.
Earlier the Buipe Traditional Area directed the party to call off the demonstration citing congestion of the town as Mondays.
It indicated the Mondays are the market days in Buipe, the central business district of Central Gonja hence the need for the NDC to reschedule the intended demonstration.
NDC Reschedules Demonstration
However, The Savannah Regional Communications Officer, Malik Basintale in a communique said the planned demonstration has been rescheduled for Tuesday, 22nd December, 2020 in Buipe.
He called on party supporters across the region to converge at the Buipe bridge at 6am Tuesday morning to protest against the Electoral Commission’s verdict of the just ended 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections on 7th December 2020.
The communique read “We wish to invite the general public to a mass protest intended to challenge the flawed results of the 2020 election as declared by the Nana Addo, Jean Mensah Led electoral commission.”
He added “We urge our over 200,000 regional support base and beyond to join in making this event a success as we seek to further amplify the voices of the over 6million respected Ghanaians who votered for H.E John Dramani Mahama but do not have their votes declared.”
