Christian Anefor popularly known as Prof Mandora, an active member of the Oti Youth Wing Media and Publicity team and hardworking TESCON-UEW Communication Director for the first time in the history of TESCON-UEW legal cases, won a case against the TESCON-UEW interim Electoral Commissioner for willfully disqualifying a committed Presidential candidate who before filling resigned as South Campus coordinator for the University of Education,Winneba TESCON branch without stated reasons.
In reference to a law suit between Lambert Dakurah Naazie versus the interim Electoral Commissioner which was presided by the TESCON-UEW Judicial Board, led by Abdulia Abdul Samad Judiciary Board Chairmen was decided yesterday Tuesday at the Kwayire Aggrey Hall Block A JCRC.
The lawyer for the Plaintiff, Anefor Christian was able to make the court ruled to consider all aspirants who appeared before the vetting committee contest for their various portfolios with a claimed that, the vetting committee was with unclean hands to disqualify any candidate. The lawyer to the petitioner Christian Anefor stated unequivocally that, the Electoral Commissioner violated the TESCON amended Regulations, Regulations9(4) i, ii, iii, which provides that, the National Youth Organizer of NPP or his representative, Regional Youth Organiser or representative and Regional TESCON Coordinator or his Deputy should be on the vetting committee.
The lawyer to the defendant claimed to have representatives for the persons named in the Regulations but Christian Anefor questioned the defendant to mention names of the reps which they gave names which were appointed by the stakeholders to serve as Interim Electoral Commission for TESCON-UEW to ensure peace and unity as claimed by Christian Anefor and told the court that, his defendants is a liar and disrespectful to this competent court of jurisdiction and also made a intelligent submission that, even if the defendant claimed to have ghost names as representatives to the National commander and Regional commander, where is the Regional TESCON Coordinator or his deputy? He said because the Regulations stated that him or his deputy, they could not lie to the court again and the court must not tolerate their actions at all.
Then Christian Anefor took keen position to read some two Maxims of Equity statements to the Judicial Board, stated that, He Who Seek Equity Must Do Equity and And Who Comes To Equity Must Come With Clean Hands.
The lawyer to the petitioner Christian Anefor said his client has met all this qualifications but his defendant did not, and for the avoidance of doubt, the the committee is unclean to disqualify any candidate and therefore all candidates must be allowed to contest or reconstitute the vetting committee.
The court finally ruled that, all aspirants who appeared before the vetting committee should be allowed to contest to ensure peace and unity as earlier preached before constituting the interim committee.
This has saved all the TESCON-UEW Aspirants to still be in the contest. If not the situation would have been different.
Lawyer Anefor Christian claims were that,
The committee vetted his client without the National Youth Organizer or his rep as provided in the TESCON regulation
The Regional Youth Organiser or his rep.
And that, the Regional TESCON Coordinator or his deputy were all absent.
And these claims are all legitimate as far as TESCON vetting is concerned.
The supporters of the presidential candidate who was previously favoured to go unopposed were unhappy about the ruling and wanted to fight the CJ and Prof Mandora client supporters.
The entire membership of TESCON-UEW are happy across the three campuses and praising Prof Mandora for his awesome commitment to ensuring the welfare of TESCONIANS.
Christian Anefor(Prof Mandora) has been instrumental in TESCON-UEW activities and on yesterday’s 4th October, 2022 has set a remarkable record which will never be forgotten.
