The Member of Parliament for Assin North Constituency, Hon. James Gyaakye Quayson, has kept in touch with the Chief Justice to influence the Judge (Justice Kwesi Boakye) to disqualify himself as judge on his case.
After 2020 election, one Michael Ankomah who is a native of Assin Bereku petitioned James Gyekye Quayson challenging the eligibility of his citizenship as he was a citizen of Canada when he filed his nomination to contest as a Member of Parliament (MP) in Ghana.
Cape Coast High Court placed an interlocutory injunction on the swearing-in of James Gyakye Quayson as Member of Parliament for Assin North upon winning the 2020 Parliamentary election in the constituency.
The court also placed an injunction on Mr Quayson from holding himself as the MP-Elect for Assin North constituency.
According to Hon. James Gyekye Quayson, the judge, Justice Kwasi Boakye allegedly passed comments prejudicial to the case as interpreted by Layer Amaliba and Layer Sammy Gyamfi.
As indicated by him, Justice Kwasi Boakye had said that the fitting time Article 94(2) of the 1992 Constitution kicks in is during the recording of the assignment by a MP.
This charge was excused by the adjudicator when it was made in light of the fact that the alleger, Abraham Amaliba, neglected to show any proof that Justice Kwasi Boakye without a doubt offered the remark on the twelfth of April.
In court on Tuesday, June 1, Abraham Amaliba reminded the court, whenever he’s composed to pull out from the case, it implies he’s not, at this point involved with the matter and that the MP, as cycles of court requests, should be served and informed for him to get a legitimate portrayal in court.
The court consequently requested Abraham Amaliba to work with the assistance of the MP so the court cycles could proceed.
Present in court were the NDC National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and National Communication Officer of the gathering, Sammy Gyamfi.
Sammy Gyamfi tended to the media saying they have appealed to the Chief equity to influence the adjudicator to recuse himself from the case since he has been suspected to have offered remarks biased to the preliminary.
Sammy Gyamfi says, there would be a genuine probability of inclination should the appointed authority be made to sit on case he has foreordained.
The Representative of the applicant, Richard Tachie-Mensah says the NDC simply needs to sloppy the waters and cause circumstances where there aren’t any.
He said that, the charge mounted on the Judge by Layer Amaliba is false, adding that the allegation is a ploy to postpone the case.
The case, has been deferred to the June 8 when the MP, Joe Gyaakye Quayson would have been served and would have tracked down a legitimate portrayal.
