NPP tried to bribe Gyakye Quayson to withdraw from Assin North by-election – Sammy Gyamfi alleges

Sammy Gyamfi claims that the NPP attempted to bribe Gyakye Quayson to drop out of the race for Assin North.

Sammy Gyamfi, the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC’s) communications officer, has made a startling admission, accusing the New Patriotic Party (NPP) of trying to pay James Gyakye Quayson, the MP-elect for Assin North, into not running in the by-election.

Following the NPP’s failure to bribe Gyakye Quayson, some party members allegedly threatened to have him imprisoned if he were to win reelection, according to Gyamfi’s statement on Facebook on Monday, July 3.

Gyamfi praised Quayson for his unwavering devotion to and affection for his constituents, noting that despite encountering numerous obstacles, the MP-elect remained steadfast in his mission to fight for justice.
He described Quayson as being brave, peaceful, and self-assured. Gyamfi credited Quayson’s individual commitment and perseverance as the cause of their success.

Folks, not much has been said about the MP-elect for Assin North’s tenacity, without which victory might not have been possible. They made an effort to buy his compliance. They vowed to jail him if they didn’t succeed. He was, however, unwavering in his devotion to and affection for his people throughout all of these things. Always serene but self-assured; modest but strong; solemn but energizing; timid but fearless.

“The reason we are grinning today is because of his personal commitment and drive to pursue justice despite all odds, even at the risk of losing his civil liberties.

“Join me in honoring the Old Soldier, Hon. James Gyakye Quayson, First Gentleman of the Good People of Assin North.

In a by-election for the Assin North constituency, Gyakye Quayson won re-election with 57.56 percent of the total votes cast. Charles Opoku of the NPP, who won 42.15 percent of the vote, and Bernice Enyonam Sefenu of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), who received just 0.29 percent of the vote, were defeated by him, winning 17,245 votes.

After the Supreme Court mandated that Parliament remove Gyakye Quayson’s name from its records, the Assin North seat fell vacant.

Quayson had submitted his candidacy paperwork on October 9, 2020, even though he did not match the requirements, and the court determined that he was ineligible to run in the Assin North Constituency for the 2020 parliamentary election.
