The Sekondi high court has dismissed the election petition that Joshua Emuah Kofie brought in which he questioned Dorcas Toffey’s nationality as the representative for Jomoro.
The MP was deemed eligible by the court presided over by Justice Dr. Richmond Osei Hwere on the grounds that she lost her Ivorian citizenship precisely at the moment she obtained her Ghanaian citizenship.
The applicant had claimed that the MP was unqualified to run for and be elected because he or she possessed dual citizenship with the United States and Ivory Coast.
The politician denied being both an American and an Ivorian.
She was represented by Edudzi Tamakloe, James Agalga, Marrieta Brew Oppong, a former attorney general, Kofi Totobi Quakye, a former minister of national security, MP for Ellembelle, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, James Gyekye Quayson, the embattled Assin North MP, and Western regional NDC executives.
