Court Throws Out Rastafarian Student’s Injunction Against Achimota School

Published

on


The Rastafarian student, Tyrone Marghuy who was denied admission by the Achimota senior high school for his hairstyle, has had his injunction against the school dismissed by the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court.

The court, presided over by Justice Gifty Agyei Addo said the applicant failed procedurally on both interim injunctions which were to last for 10 days or interlocutory injunction which was to last throughout the hearing of the case.

The injunction sought the court to order Achimota School to admit the applicant for him to attend classes pending the final determination of the substantive matter.

However, the court noted that it cannot grant the injunction because such a decision will prejudice the outcome of the case because the respondents have not been put on notice.

Were You Expecting Bagbin To Appoint His Enemies As Advisors? – Asiedu Nketia Asks Kyei Mensah Bonsu

Published

on


General Secretary for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has hit back at the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu for his accusations against the Speaker Alban Bagbin.

Speaking on The Probe, Mr Nketia wondered if the Majority Leader expected the Speaker to be appoint his opponents to be his advisors.

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu in an interview on Sunday, April 4, expressed worry over how Speaker Bagbin has selected one too many members of the NDC to his office as advisors.

He also expressed displeasure with the selection of Mr Aseidu Nketia as a member of the Parliamentary Service Board.

Explaining that he did not have a problem with Aseidu Nketia as a person but the fact that he still holds his position as a General Secretary of the NDC.

In the Suame legislator’s view, Speaker Alban Bagbin was gradually turning the House into an enclave for the NDC.

But according to the NDC General Secretary, the rules governing the land give the Speaker discretion to appoint who he would want to work with, and they must be people he shares similar ideologies with.

“Before, Speaker Bagbin came, what was Parliament? Was it [not] an enclave of NPP? Because the former Speaker was NPP and all the former MPs who should be on the Parliamentary Board were all from NPP leadership.

“I do not want to believe that the workers or the advisors at the time were from CPP. So if they were all NPP at the time and now you have another Speaker, I am wondering if Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu was expecting [Speaker] Bagbin to appoint his opponents to advise him,” he stated.

To butress his point, Mr Asiedu Nketia, citing President Akufo-Addo’s appointees on the Council of State claimed not a single nominee is a member of the opposition NDC.

As such, it will be hypocritical on the part of the Parliamentary Affairs Minister to make such assertions against the leader of the Legislature, he believes.

“I am worried about people who cannot use parity of reasoning; when something suits them they argue in a certain way. They can argue that is paper is white, then the next day the same people will be arguing that this paper is black or blue.

“That is not the way to build credibility,” he said categorically.

We Can’t Win 2024 Even If We Present Kuffuor As Flagbearer – NPP Founding Member, Kwame Pianim

Published

on


A founding member of the NPP, Kwame Pianim has expressed disappointment in the internal struggle within the Party just few months after winning an election that extended their mandate.

Speaking on TV3’s ‘The Key Points’ on Saturday, 10th April, Mr Pianim said this internal struggle has the power to the send the NPP back to opposition.

According to him, whoever is chosen as flagbearer of the Party will depend on the performance of President Akufo-Addo to win the election.

He said further that if President Akufo-Addo fails to meet expectations, the NPP cannot win 2024 even if they present former president Kuffuor as flagbearer.

He therefore wondered why people are busy fighting over who becomes the next flagbearer when the efforts should rather be on helping President Akufo-Addo to deliver on his mandate.
