The Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has advised the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) not to be too happy about the Cape Coast High Court ruling on the 2020 Assin North Parliamentary election. This is because the incumbent MP, Hon. James Gyaakye Quayson is still eligible to contest in this by-election.
This is the MP who defeated their Parliamentary Candidate, Hon. Abena Durowaa Mensah with over 3,000 votes in the 2020 elections. Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa believes that it is only the good people of Assin North Constituency who will decide in this by-election and it is only their true verdict that matters. He stated that he knows Mr Quayson is an honest, intelligent and affable man that the people trust he will deliver.
According to him, Mr James Gyaakye Quayson remains unshakable in this situation and he will surely maintain the seat for the NDC. It appears the NDC will not choose any new Candidate for this election as the court said that Mr Quayson can still contest in this election.
Mr Ablakwa said that the NDC leadership and members are solidly behind him in this trial and he strongly believes that they will be victorious in this election. This is what Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa wrote on his official Facebook page:
"I have absolutely no doubt that my affable, down to earth, intelligent and honest colleague - Hon. James Gyakye Quayson, MP for Assin North who remains as formidable and immovable as Mountain Afadzato shall surely retain his glorious membership of the 8th Parliament. We both will continue to share the same office floor as we strengthen our bond of brotherhood and together deepen our comradely resolve to work hard and meet the legitimate expectations of the people.
Be of good cheer my brother, the sea of solidarity and support you have is far greater than this fleeting test of the resilience of your dear constituents. As consummate democrats, we shall always choose the genuine electoral victory that comes from the masses over technical gymnastics masterminded by a negligible few".
