Restoration Calls UCC to Court has got wind of an unimpeachable information that Opoku Nti Ernest (Restoration) has dragged the University of Cape Coast to the Cape Coast High Court for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.

The set date for the appearance in court is Tuesday, March, 25, 2014 which the court may enforce an injunction on the SRC elections.

The application is base under Article 33 of the 1992 constitution of the Republic of Ghana, Articles 296 and 17, order 67 of the CI47 and the University of Cape Coast Students handbook 2012 revised edition.

The respondents of the case include The Dean of Students, as first respondent, the chairman of the 2014/2015 SRC elections Vetting Committee of the University of Cape Coast as second respondent.

The third respondent is the chairman of the 2014/2015 SRC elections electoral commission of the University Cape Coast, and Philip Glover, the group of convener of petitioners of the University of Cape Coast as the fourth respondent.

The last respondent or the fifth respondent is the Attorney General and Minister of Justice Cape Coast Regional Office.

It will be recalled that Opoku Nti Ernest (Restoration) was axed from the 2014/2015 SRC elections race which was purported to be as a result of a petition some students brought against him challenging his eligibility to contest the elections.

Restoration is therefore challenging his disqualification from the elections and views his disqualification as a breach of his fundamental human rights which are enshrined in Ghana’s constitution.

He is therefore praying the court to intervene to ensure that he is allowed to contest the election because the said allegations that was raised in the petition that was brought against him was untrue and misconstrued.
