Reports reaching YEN.com.gh revealed that the case which has been in court for several months now has been dismissed by the Supreme Court.

Mr Baako argued that Mrs Osei was not impeached based on the performance of her core functions as the EC Chairperson.

He, therefore, wanted an interpretation of Article 146 of the 1992 Constitution, from the court to that effect.

But in a unanimous decision on Tuesday,February 5, 2019, a seven-member panel of the court presided over by Justice Julius Ansah, dismissed the suit on the basis that it raises no issue for constitutional interpretation or enforcement.

Charlotte Osei and her then two deputies Amadu Sulley and Georgina Opoku Amankwa were impeached as Electoral Commissioners on June 28, 2018.

The letter from the presidency stated that the trio were removed for “misbehaviour and incompetence.”

The removal was on the recommendation of a committee set up by the Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo to investigate alleged acts of corruption, misconduct, and misbehaviour by the three commissioners.

Their removal sent shock waves throughout the country, with the Minority NDC crying foul.
