Kofi Jumah’s case adjourned to July 6

The case involving Former Member of Parliament for Asokwa Constituency, Maxwell Kofi Jumah, has been adjourned to Monday, July 6.

This is to enable the Attorney General, according to the prosecutor, study the docket against the former Mayor of Kumasi.

Mr Jumah, popularly known as Kofi Ghana, was charged at the Kumasi Circuit Court for destroying electoral materials during the June 13 parliamentary primary of his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), in the Constituency.

He was challenging incumbent MP Patricia Appiagyei for the 2016 ticket.

But Kofi Ghana accused Ms Appiagyei of going against agreed procedure prior to the election, accusing his successor at the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) of doctoring the register.

He has since petitioned the Party for an annulment of the results.

Presiding judge in the case, Efua Adu-Amankwah, adjourned the case on Monday, June 29 to allow the AG more time to study the docket.
