Joromo MP Case: Court Throws Out Petitioners, Dorcas Affo-Toffey Remains MP

The Sekondi High Court has dismissed a petition challenging the eligibility of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Jomoro, Dorcas Affo-Toffey.

This means Dorcas Affo-Toffey can continue to be an MP and continue to represent the people of Jomoro in Parliament.

The court said per her application and subsequent issuance of a Ghanaian passport, she automatically lost the Ivorian nationality.

In a judgment today, the court held that per Ivorian laws, immediately the MP acquired a Ghanaian passport, she automatically ceased to be an Ivorian and therefore there was no need for her to have formally renounced her Ivorian citizenship as argued by the petitioners.
