COURT STOPS NDC MP-ELECT FOR ASSIN NORTH FROM BEING SWORN-IN

A Cape Coast High Court has granted an injunction restraining James Gyekye Quayson from holding himself as NDC MP-elect for Assin North over dual citizenship.

This follows a petition against the MP-elect by one Michael Ankoma-Nimfah, a mason and resident of Assin Bereku.

Quayson is being accused of owing allegiance to Canada contrary to Article 94 (1) (a) of the 1992 constitution.

According to the judge, the issues raised against the MP-elect warrant full trial hence he needs to stop describing himself as MP.
