Court throws out petition against NDC MP for Jomoro

Dorcas Affo-Toffey, the National Democratic Congress NDC MP for Jomoro has won the election petition case questioning her eligibility for the post as a result of her alleged Ivorian citizenship.

According to Justice Dr Richmond Osei Hwere, the Sekondi High Court judge, the petition was dismissed because the elected MP lost her Ivorian citizenship when she acquired her Ghanaian citizenship.

The petitioner Joshua Emuah Kofie challenged the eligibility of the MP to contest as a Ghanaian lawmaker, saying she violated the dual citizenship law.

He claimed that the MP holds multiple nationalities, including American and Ivorian citizenships, which contravenes the1992 Constitution.
