Former Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama has responded to an injunction application filed by presidential hopeful Dr. Kwabena Duffuor against the National Democratic Congress (NDC) elections scheduled for May 13, 2023. The application is based on concerns regarding the NDC’s electoral album. Mahama expressed hope that the obstacle can be overcome and that the primaries can proceed as planned. Speaking to delegates in Wa, he stated that he is optimistic that an understanding can be reached, allowing for the voting of parliamentary and presidential candidates on Saturday. According to a report by, Mahama stated, “We know on Saturday, God willing, we have a little obstacle to cross because of an injunction one candidate has placed on the primaries, but we are hopeful that some understanding can be reached so that we go ahead with these primaries, and so on Saturday, we will come together and vote for our parliamentary candidates and our presidential candidates.”

Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, who is running for the flagbearer position in the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has filed an interlocutory injunction against the party’s scheduled presidential and parliamentary primaries, which are set to take place on May 13, 2023.

In the lawsuit, Dr. Duffuor has named the General Secretary of the NDC, the Director of the Elections Directorate, and two of his fellow flagbearer hopefuls, John Dramani Mahama and Kojo Bonsu, as respondents. The writ stipulates that the defendants must enter their appearance within eight days of receiving the legal documents. Failure to comply with the order could result in a judgment being made against them without further notice.

Dr. Duffuor’s decision to seek legal action was prompted by alleged irregularities and concerns regarding the integrity of the upcoming primaries, as stated in a previous statement from his camp.
