The Supreme Court has struck out the case between Mr Mahama Ayariga (MP for Bawku Central), and the Government of Ghana, over the implementation of some programmes, for want of prosecution.


According to Mr. Ayariga, the implementation of programmes such as ‘Planting for Food and Jobs’, ‘Free Senior High School’, ‘Infrastructure for Poverty Eradiction’, ought to be restrained by the court.

It was the case of the Plaintiff that the government, in implementing the policies, did not lay them before parliament to seek the operational modalities for some of the programmes.

Mr Ayariga was therefore, requesting the Court to order the president or the relevant minister, to lay the framework and roadmaps of the implementation of the policies before parliament before they are carried out.

He was also seeking an interim injunction restraining the president or his agents from implementing the programmes, until such time as the appropriate institutions for implementation are enacted by parliament and the appropriate regulations to govern the implementation of the said programmes, are also approved by parliament.
