Court dismisses injunction application on GFA elections

An Accra High Court yesterday dismissed an application for an injunction filed by disqualified Central Regional Football Association aspirant Roy Arthur.

The application sought to restrain the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalisation Committee acting as the Elections Committee from going ahead with the electoral process of getting new leaders for the Association.

Mr Arthur filed the suit against the Committee at the Accra High Court after his appeal against his disqualification from the contesting elections was thrown out. 

Justice Eric Kyei Baffour who presided over the case said the application was not properly filed by the applicant.

“It didn’t exhaust the remedies available under the FA Statutes,” it said.

According to the Judge, the writ filed by Mr Arthur did not state any of the clauses breached by the Association under the election regulations.

The defendant lawyer, Naa Odofoley Nortey prayed the court to award damages of GH¢3,000 on the basis of an affidavit she filed in opposition even though it was an ex parte.

Justice Baffour rather awarded a cost of GH¢2,000 against the plaintiff. 

The GFA elections have been scheduled for October 25. –Myjoyonline
