Reports reaching Univers News indicate that the Judicial Board of the University of Ghana Students Representative Council has served the Electoral Commission and Legal Advisor of the Elizabeth Sey Junior Common Room with a writ of summons on an appeal case brought to it by the solicitors of Wisdom Ndukwe.
This writ of summons is to enable the Elizabeth Sey JCR legal advisor make an appearance before the board on the hearing of an injunction case and a consequent substantive case on the appeal of the decision made in;
Wisdom Ndukwe V.The Legal Advisor and Two Others suit
No. EFSH/01/2020, 4th March 2020, Presided over by Her Ladyship Rachel Ampofo.
This implies that all electoral processes and actions by the respondents involved in the case that could injure the plaintiff must be halted until the injunction pending appeal case is heard.
Univers News gathers that this stage of the case is scheduled to be heard on Saturday, March 7, 2020.
How did we get here
On the 27th of February 2020, Wisdom Ndukwe and Stephan Osei Bonsu filed to contest the 2020 Elizabeth Frances Sey Hall JCR Elections.
With less than 2hours to reach the Thursday 11:59 pm deadline for the submission of forms, Stephan Osei Bonsu scandalized his running mate, Wisdom Ndukwe with a resignation letter that he was no longer interested in contesting for the presidential office of the JCR.
Stephan was now interested in the office of Organizing Secretary and submitted the forms in that regard to contest in the election.
Clement Amponsah, speaking to UniversNews in an earlier interview narrated that Wisdom Ndukwe expressed confidence in finding a new partner before the deadline to enable him to contest in the election.
Wisdom Ndukwe, however, submitted the forms at about 12:40 am, according to the EC.
Following the non-inclusion of his name in the list of aspirants who were to be vetted, Wisdom Ndukwe petitioned the JCR Judicial Board to place an injunction on all electoral processes until his case was heard and judgment delivered.
Subsequently, the Judicial Board, in a unanimous decision on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, granted the injunction.
When the substantive case was heard on Wednesday, Wisdom’s case was thrown out, and the Electoral Commission asked to continue its preparation for Monday’s JCR election.
