The Supreme Court has instructed that a new judge presides over the contempt caseof Assin Central MP, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong.
Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni, a Justice of the Accra High Court, who was presiding over the contempt trial of Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has been prohibited.
According to the court, it will give its full reason for the decision on October 20, 2020.
However, the trial will not be before Justice Wuni, who had been presiding over the matter since it commenced.
YEN.com.gh in an earlier report stated that Kennedy Agyapong, challenged the High Court's jurisdiction in charging him with contempt charges.
He was sued for allegedly insulting and threatening a trial judge at a labor court.
He, however, rendered an unqualified apology for his insulting comments against the judges, justices and magistrates
According to him, upon sober reflection, he realised that his expression about the court was harsh.
In a completely different story, the NPP has chosen the wife of the murdered NPP MP, Ekow Hayford, as his replacement for the party in the upcoming December elections.
The wife, Ophelia Hayford, is an Assitant Superintendent of Police (ASP), was reportedly selected by the party at a meeting held on Tuesday, October 13, 2020.
This is in line with the Section 4 of the Public Elections Regulations 2020, C.I. 127, which states that: “Where at the close of nominations, but before the election, one of the candidates dies, a further period of 10 days shall be allowed for nominations.”
Ophelia has, thus, tendered in her resignation letter to the police administration following her new role as her husband’s replacement.
