James Gyaakye Quayson, the National Democratic Congress’s Parliamentary Candidate in Assin North, whose victory in the 2020 election has been declared null and void by the court, has described the Cape Coast High Court’s judgment over his supposed dual citizenship status as “a travesty of justice”.
In response to the court judgment overturning his victory, Mr. Quayson said, “we shall resist every attempt to subvert the true will of the people.”
He maintained in a statement that his election victory was “pure and legitimate”.
“As the unimpeachable facts show, I have always been a sincere, loyal, law-abiding, and patriotic citizen who only set out in good conscience to come to serve the great people of Assin North with all my heart and with all my capacity,” he stated.
Mr. Quayson urged his supporters not to be discouraged, saying “the confirmation of our historic victory beckons.”
