The newly-elected President of the Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) Albert Kwabena Dwumfour and the other five elected executives have been sworn in despite a lingering interlocutory injunction.

They were sworn in at the Accra International Conference Centre in Accra on Friday June 30

The campaign team for Mr Dwumfour told journalists that they have not been served any suit hence nothing barred him from taking the oath of office.

Last Friday, June 24, delegates of the GJA voted to elect new executives.

However a member of the association Justice Lee Adoboe sued the GJA (1st defendant), past President of the Association Roland Affail Monney (2nd defendant) and Mr Dwumfuor (the 3rd defendant) for alleged corruption during the polls.

“That in the circumstance, I pray for an order of an interlocutory injunction to restrain the defendants/respondents from swearing in the 3rd Defendant as President of the 1st Defendant and a further Order restraining the 3rd defendant from holding himself out as President of the 1st Respondent,” part of the suit said.
