Former NDC Organizer Fined by Tamale High Court

The Tamale High Court, presided over by Justice Eric Ansah Ankomah, has imposed a fine of GH¢ 20,000 on the immediate past Savannah Regional Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Inusah Abdulai. Mr. Abdulai had taken his successor, Sorku Kassim Yahuza, and the NDC to court, seeking to nullify the 2023 Savannah Regional Executives’ election results.

In a verdict delivered on Monday, July 31, the Court declared the writ against the two defendants as frivolous, vexatious, and unmeritorious. As a consequence, the Court fined the complainant, Inusah Abdulai, GH¢ 20,000.

The plaintiff was represented by counsel Sheikh Arif Abdullah, while the defendants, Sorku Yahuza and the NDC, were represented by Salisu Be-Awuribe Issifu.

In response to the verdict, Sualisu Be-Awuribe Issifu, the Savannah Regional Secretary of the NDC and counsel for the defendants, expressed that the former regional organizer, Inusah Abdulai, had ignored numerous pieces of advice and warnings prior to taking legal action.

The lawyer stated that the party will pursue the payment of the fine, and he emphasized that this verdict should serve as a warning to anyone seeking to unjustifiably tarnish the image of the NDC.
