Presidential candidate of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Akwasi Addai popularly called Odike is in fresh trouble as some executives of the party have dragged him to court prevent him from filing nomination forms to contest in this year’s election.
The action was taken by the National Organizer of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Stephen Kwaku Saahene and some regional executives of the party. The executives are seeking “a declaration that the first defendant [Odike] is not a member of the United Progressive Party having been dismissed by a unanimous resolution of the National Executive Committee of the UPP on grounds of misconduct.”
They are also seeking an order of “perpetual injunction restraining the 1st defendant his agents, assigns, privies, workmen and however described from carrying himself as the flagbearer of the UPP.”
The executives also want the court to stop the Electoral Commission from accepting the nomination forms of Odike.
“An order of injunction restraining the 2nd defendant from issuing, accepting and registering the 1st defendant to contest the 2016 presidential elections as the flagbearer of the United Progressive Party,” the writ added.
