The petition, rooted in the Local Governance Act, 2016 Act (936), Section 7 subsection (3) (c), cites Mr. Hohede’s involvement in a Gh¢620,457.32 financial malfeasance at Koforidua Technical University (KTU) leading to his dismissal in 2020 by the Governing Council of Koforidua Technical University.

The Concern Residents point out explicit violations of Part IV of the District Assembly Elections Form of Nomination Paper, focusing on Paragraphs 8 (i), 9, 13, and 14.

The petitioners led by John Willington, the Convenor, accused Emmanuel Hohede of making false declarations in his nomination form submitted to the Electoral Commission of Ghana, a breach that challenges the integrity of the electoral process.

The residents stress the importance of maintaining the electoral process’s integrity, emphasizing that disqualifying Emmanuel Hohede from the 2023 District Level Election would be a crucial step in upholding these standards.
