The Convention Peoples Party – CPP suspended nominations following court injunction and all other activities towards the March 28 National Delegates Congress.
Mr James Kwabena Bomfeh Junior, Acting General Secretary of the CPP, told the Ghana News Agency that the developments were as a result of a court injunction.
This was as a result of a writ of summons filed on Feb 26, at the High Court general jurisdiction division by Bright Akwetey and Yaw Asamoah, against Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim Haruan, Acting National Chairperson; James Kwabena Bomfeh (Kabila) Acting General Secretary and the CPP.
The Writ of Summons directs the defendants to enter appearance within eight days, “that in default of your so doing, judgement may be given in your absence without further notice to you”.

on legalities, the party’s leadership would consult their legal team and accordingly inform the public on what the party planned to do next in due course.
