An aspiring Chairman for the New Patriotic Party Cape Coast South constituency, Alexander Mensa Hagan, has called on his supporters and party sympathisers to remain resolute as the courts decide on a case of ineligibility brought against him.
In a statement issued in Cape Coast on Sunday, Mr. Hagan said: “I urge all my supporters and sympathisers not to be disheartened by the temporary setback. We will contest the matter in court and come out victorious. We will then go into the election and win a great victory for the people of Cape Coast South.”
He therefore reiterated the need for his supporters to remain confident and upbeat about the outcome of the legal challenge. “I thank everyone for the overwhelming support since I decided to contest the Cape Coast South Constituency Chairman position,” Mr. Hagan said.
The Cape Coast High Court placed an injunction on the party’s constituency election on Friday following a suit filed by some members of the constituency challenging the eligibility of Mr. Hagan to contest the chairmanship position.
Hagan, a renowned geologist and philanthropist says he decided to contest the position because he wants to bring his years of experience and expertise to bear on the management of the party.
