The High Court in Sekondi, located in the Western region, has issued an injunction against Joana Cudjoe Gyan, preventing her from presenting herself as the elected parliamentary candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Amenfi Central constituency due to allegations of forging her voter's ID and NDC party card.

The court order, presided over by Justice G. K. Gyan-Kontoh, also restrained the NDC, the second defendant, from recognizing or dealing with Joana Cudjoe Gyan as the duly elected NDC parliamentary candidate for the Amenfi Central Constituency.

Furthermore, the injunction order stated that the applicants must file an undertaking to pay damages as compensation to the respondent if it is eventually determined that the applicants are not entitled to the injunction.

The five applicants—Gyedu Frimpong, Akubilla Daniel, Wnock Ntiamoh, Isaac Twum, and Doris Aidoo—have sued Joana Cudjoe, the NDC, and the Electoral Commission as respondents.

The court's order states: "It is hereby ordered that, until the final determination of the matter, the affected parties are restrained as follows:

The first defendant/respondent is prohibited from holding herself out as the duly elected NDC parliamentary candidate for the Amenfi Central Constituency.

The second and third defendants/respondents, their agents, and officers are prohibited from recognising, dealing with, or granting any rights or privileges to the first defendant/respondent as the duly elected NDC Parliamentary Candidate for the Amenfi Central Constituency," the court declared.

"It is further ordered that the applicants shall file an undertaking to pay damages by way of compensation to the respondent if it turns out that the applicants are, in fact, not entitled to the injunction as required," the court-mandated.
