PPP takes Akua Donkor to court over campaign vehicle
The Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) is in court to recover its Toyota Tundra vehicle with registration number “GC 3706 12” in the custody of Madam Akua Donkor, Flag bearer of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP).
It had been given to her to canvass for votes for the PPP in the December 7 elections, after she had failed in her bid to file her nomination with the Electoral Commission (EC) to contest the presidential poll.
The said vehicle has sparked a row between Madam Donkor and the party as she has publicly vowed not to return it to the owners, claiming it had been given out to her as gift.
The PPP would, however, not let it go culminating in an application to the Kumasi Circuit Court Three presided over by Mr Justice D.W.P. Amedior, to compel her to return it.
Mr Oheneba Kuffuor, a Kumasi-based lawyer, is representing the plaintiff.
Documents on the vehicle show that it is owned by the Coconut Groove Hotel, operated by Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, the PPP’s Presidential Candidate.
The plaintiffs contend that the decision by the defendant to keep the vehicle is illegal and wrongful.
They want the court to intervene to prevent Madam Donkor from causing irreparable damage to the vehicle.
Mr Justice Amedior directed that a copy of the writ must be served on her for her to respond.
