Jean Mensa drags CJ, AG to Supreme Court over petition against her

The Electoral Commissioner Jean Mensa and her two deputies have dragged Oliver Barker-Vormawor, the Chief Justice and the Attorney General to the Supreme Court over a petition to the President for “stated misbehaviour and incompetence.”

In a writ filed at the Supreme Court to invoke the original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, the Plaintiffs are asking for five reliefs including “A declaration that the airing of the contents of the Petition by 1st Defendant to the media (Traditional and social) has subjected 1st, 2nd and 3rd Plaintiffs to public ridicule, hatred, opium and opprobrium and equally exposed them to unfair prejudice.”

They are also seeking “An order of perpetual injunction directed against 2nd Defendant (Chief Justice) from determining, dealing or having anything to do in any manner whatsoever and/or howsoever, with any issues arising out of the contents of Petitioners Petition or at all.”

They also seek “orders and/or directions as this honourable court may deem fit to give effect or enable effect to be given to the orders of this court.”
