No One Can Take Jomoro Seat From My Mother - Fantana


Ghanaian musician Francine Koffie, known in the entertainment industry as Fantana, has reacted to her mother winning the court case of the Jomoro seat. She said no one could take the Jomoro seat away from her mother.

Her statement comes after the Sekondi High Court, on Monday, dismissed a petition challenging the eligibility of the MP of Jomoro, Mrs Affo-Toffey.

Reacting to her mother's victory, she posted a picture on her Snapchat page and captioned, "My queen won her case!!!! LEADER. You will continue to remain the MP for Jomoro for as long as you want, and no one can take your seat away from you! You’ve worked so hard.”

It is worth mentioning that Joshua Emuah Kofie, a resident of Nuba-Mpataba, filed a writ at the Sekondi High Court to challenge the National Democratic Congress(NDC) MP Dorcas Affo-Toffey's eligibility to be a legislator and contended that she holds dual citizenship before the 2020 election contrary to the laws.

The Sekondi High Court, presided over by Justice Dr Richmond Osei Hwere on June 22, 2021, ordered the Member of Parliament for Jomoro, Mrs Dorcas Affo-Toffey submit documents to prove that she has renounced her Ivorian citizenship within 10-days.

However, the High Court dismissed the petition challenging the MP's eligibility to be a legislator in Ghana on Monday, November 21, 2022. 

The petition got dismissed because, according to Justice Dr Osei Hwere, the elected MP lost her Ivorian citizenship when she acquired her Ghanaian citizenship.
