The Supreme Court will hear the legal arguments on the swearing-in of Member of Parliament (MP-elect) for Hohoe, John Peter Amewu, on Monday, January 4, 2021, YEN.com.gh can report.
Amewu’s eligibility to be sworn on Thursday, January 7, 2021, is in limbo following an injunction on his swearing by a High Court in Ho in the Volta Region.
The Attorney-General (AG) dragged the Ho High Court to the Supreme Court, asking it to quash the injunction as well as halt it from hearing the substantive brought against Amewu and the Electoral.
According to the AG, the High Court lacks the jurisdiction to sit on the case.
The Ho High Court on Wednesday, December 23, presided over by Justice George Buadi granted an interim injunction restraining the Commission from gazetting the New Patriotic Party’s candidate as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Hohoe.
This was after an ex-parte application by residents in the Guan District who were not given the opportunity to vote in parliamentary elections.
Meanwhile, Amewu has vowed to transform the Hohoe constituency in four years.
The Energy Minister indicated that the Hohoe Constituency would witness a tremendous transformation within the next four years.
Amewu said he would ensure the constituency sees growth in both economic and human resources in a bid to restore Hohoe’s lost glory.
He added that due to the development the town is about to witness, the seat will never return to the opposition NDC anymore but would remain with the NPP.
He said he will give all his constituents equal access to various life transforming programmes like job opportunities, educational scholarships, apprenticeship among others.
In a separate development, he has been spotted in a video grinding some girls at a concert.
The MP-elect organized a victory concert to celebrate his historic win of the Hohoe Constituency seat in the December 7, 2020, parliamentary election.
