Former Minister of Energy and Petroleum, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah has described the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for Assin North constituency, Hon. Gyakye Quayson as a man of integrity who refuses to be humiliated.

According to him, Gyakye Quayson has maintained his dignity in the face of this blatant injustice he has been subjected to in the last 2 years.

“Hon Gyakye Quayson refuses to be humiliated. This is what our unfair justice system has tried to subject him to in the last 2 years. A man of complete integrity, Hon Quayson has held his cool and has maintained his dignity in the face of this blatant injustice.” Kofi Buah tweeted.

He therefore appealed to delegates to re-elect Hon. Gyakye Quayson in the upcoming by-election in Assin North if they want justice to prevail.

“His quest to contribute his quota in ameliorating the predicament of his people is unparalleled. Despite the miscarriage of justice administered to him, his sacred resolve to change the narrative for the good people of Assin North remains undeterred and unbroken.”

“In an unjust society, silence is a crime. We all have an obligation to speak up and soon Ghana will hear from the people of Assin North The people of Assin North will speak stridently against the cruelty meted out to them come 27th June. The injustice of depriving them of representation for the last couple of years. If you are an apostle of justice, then stand up to be counted. Join the movement to re-elect Hon. Gyakye Quayson. We are poised for victory”. He added.

Leading members of the opposition NDC have served notice that the party will refile Gyakye Quayson as a candidate in the by-election.

However, some critics believe a criminal case set to be brought against Gyakye Quayson by the state will hamper his re-election.

The Supreme Court gave an order for Parliament to expunge Gyakye Quayson’s name from its record after it found that he failed to renounce his Canadian citizenship at the time of filing his nomination forms to contest the 2020 parliamentary polls.
