The General Jurisdiction 10 Division of the High Court of Ghana has dismissed an application filed by the Agricultural Development Bank on 20th July, 2022 against the Right to Information Commission and Centre for Democratic Empowerment (CDE) as respondent and interested party respectively.

In his ruling delivered on 8th March 2023, His Lordship John Eugene Nyante Nyadu concluded that “Much as the instant application would have presented a fine opportunity for me to share my thoughts on the legal issues raised, I am constrained by the non-compliance with the Constitutional requirement on the part of the applicant to bring the instant application by way of a Judicial Review and therefore cannot consider the application on its merits.

Accordingly, I decline jurisdiction in this suit and the application is accordingly dismissed.”
