The National Communication Officer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has set Assin North Constituency on fire after explaining what happened at the Cape Coast High Court.
On Monday, August 2nd, 2021, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi visited the chiefs and the entire people of Assin North Constituency to assure them the NDC Party’s support to Hon. James Gyekye Quayson.
Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi speaking in an interview with the Editor of AfricaReportage.com, Kwame Asempa Brako said the Cape Coast High Court Judgements that annulled the Assin North Parliamentary Election, held on December 7, 2020, was against the democracy of this country.
And that, it was a shameful manipulation of court processes by the Registrar, Ustaz Hamza of the Cape Coast High Court, and other judicial officers of the Court that frustrated and prevented the filing of a formal application by lawyers of the Assin North Member of Parliament, James Gyekye Quayson.
He condemned the ruling of the Cape Coast High Court indicating that the ruling by Justice Kwasi Boakye was full of plagiarized contents from Wikipedia.
According to Sammy Gyamfi, Hon. James Gyekye Quayson was qualified to be a Member of Parliament before he filed his nominations to contest as MP and at the time of his election as required by section 20(1)(d) of PNDC law 284 and at the time of his swearing-in, as prescribed under Article 94(2)(a) of the Constitution.
He alleged that the Executive members of the New Patriotic Party in Assin North Constituency are intentionally delaying the progress of the constituency and they are doing this under the influence from above just to reduce the number of NDC MPs in parliament.
However, the National Democratic Congress has filed an appeal and also preparing to file a stay of execution to be able to continue the Assin North MP’s case at the Appeals Court of Ghana.
John Dramani Mahama and the leadership of the National Democratic Congress are solidly behind your MP, James Gyekye Quayson and we are hoping to win the case at the Appeals Court, Sammy Gyamfi assures.
