The High Court in Accra has fixed November 28, 2023 to rule on a counter application filed by banker Ernest Kwasi Nimako urging the Court to dismiss the suit against him by Deborah Seyram Adablah.

This was after the parties had all filed their respective written submissions in compliance with the orders of the Court, even though Mr Nimako and his lawyers were yet to receive that of Adablah’s submissions.

While fixing the date to rule on the matter, Justice John Bosco Nabarese, the presiding judge said, lawyers of the banker are at liberty to file any supplementary affidavit upon service of written submissions from Adablah’s lawyers.
