A Vice Presidential (VP) aspirant of the re-scheduled Ghana Journalists Association elections, Francis Kokutse has threatened to sue the association if an Interim Management Committee (IMC) was not set up to run its affairs.
A statement signed by the aspirant released here addressed to GJA president, Roland Affail-Monney and copied to the Chairman of the Election Committee, Chairman of Arbitration Committee as well as all media houses called for the setting up of an Interim Management Committee to steer its affairs.
The statement said,
“This state of affairs of the association does not speak well of us as journalists and to avoid further embarrassment and public ridicule, I would like to associate myself with a previous call for the executive to step aside for an Interim Management Committee (IMC) to be put in place to run the affairs of the association until a fresh election is held.”
The GJA Vice Presidential aspirant warned he would resort to the law courts should the present executive fail to heed to his call.
“Failure to put in place the IMC may lead to no other choice, than to resort to a court action to compel the setting up of the IMC. It is my hope that we would not be forced to cross that bridge,” the statement further said.
The GJA has been in the news for some time now following the controversy that surrounded the disqualification of some aspirants across the country.
Following the controversy, the election which was supposed to have been held on March 31, 2017 was subsequently re-scheduled indefinitely.
