Former President, John Mahama has used an unprintable word to describe the legal suit against the embattled National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate in the Assin North by-election, James Gyakye Quayson.
Mr. Mahama, who has been on a penchant for harshly criticizing rulings by the Supreme Court (SC) against former government appointees under him, has done it again.
Without mincing words, the NDC 2024 presidential candidate accused the State and the Supreme Court of hatching evil plans to thwart Mr. Gyakye Quayson from becoming a Member of Parliament (MP).
During a campaign launch in the constituency, Mr. Mahama assured Assin North constituents, mostly members and sympathizers of NDC that, the NDC’s candidate is innocent despite criminal charges the State is pursuing against him at the High Court.
“This is nonsense and just a mere talk and no one can jail Gyakye Quayson. Even NAM 1 through whom Ghanaians have lost huge sums of money has not been jailed and walking free in the country” Mr. Mahama pointed out.
“This NPP administration has gone to indecent lengths to rob the people of Assin North of parliamentary representation to gain an advantage in what has essentially been a hung Parliament”, former president, Mahama disclosed.
Mr. Quayson was kicked out of Parliament after the Supreme Court directed Parliament to expunge his name from its record.
The State led by the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice has, therefore, pressed perjury, the deceit of public officer charges against Mr. Quayson seeking his imprisonment.
