Assin North Constituents Reacts to Supreme Court Verdict.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday, 13th April, 2022, has decided to put an injunction on Mr. James Gyakye Quayson from representing the people of Assin North Constituency as a Member of Parliament.

Mr.Quayson was asked by the highest court of the land to distance himself from all Parliamentary duties either in Parliament or within his Constituency until the substantive case on his dual citizenship is fully settled.

Reacting to this, Assin North Constituents had these to say;

"No matter what, we are behind him(Mr. Quayson). If they like they should call for a bi-election, we will still vote for him even more than before."

"He(Mr. Quayson) is the person that can help us, we don't want anybody except him."

"No member of Parliament has been able to do what he has done in less than four years. They can take their decision, but he is the one we endorse."

"We love the man that's why we voted for him. Things are really moving unlike previously."

It looks as if the people of Assin North are so far impressed by Mr. Quayson's performance and will much likely re-elect him should there be a by-election.

It's worth noting that, a Cape Coast High Court earlier in July, 2021 nullified the election of Mr Quayson after it found he owed allegiance to Canada at the time of filing his nomination forms to contest the polls.

Michael Ankomah Nimfah, a resident of the constituency who filed this election petition in January, 2022, initiated another action at the Supreme Court.

He urged the Court to give effect to the Cape Coast High Court Judgement and prevent a further breach of the constitution by restraining the MP.
