Court Dismisses Frivolous 1-Teacher-1-Laptop Suit; Teacher Unions Fined GHc15,000



The High Court in Accra (General Jurisdiction) has dismissed the suit filed by two teacher unions- the Innovative Teachers and All Teachers Alliance Ghana (ATAG) against K. A Technology, Ministry of Education of Ghana two others for lack of capacity.

This was upon an application by lawyers for K. A Technology to dismiss the action. The court also awarded a cost of GHc15, 000 against the plaintiffs in favour of the 1st Defendant (K.A Technologies Ghana Limited) in the matter.

Two unions, Innovative Teachers and All Teachers Alliance Ghana  (ATAG), jointly sued the Ghana Education Service (GES), the Attorney-General, and the Education Ministry over a move to award a contract on the initiative to the 1st Defendant, K.A Technologies Ghana Limited.

However, in court on Thursday, the court dismissed the suit on grounds that, the Plaintiffs have not demonstrated to the court the capacity with which they filed the suit.

According to the court, the issue of capacity goes to the root of the matter the Plaintiffs have filed and cannot seek legal rights when they are not parties to the contract.

The court said the plaintiffs have “no cause of action against the Defendants” and proceeded to award a cost of GHc15,000 in favour of the 1st Defendant (applicant).
