The Former Member of Parliament for Assin North Constituency in the central region, Hon. James Gyakye Quayson who is battling for his office and position has described the ongoing legal battle as an attempt to frustrate the minority group in parliament just to give political advantages to the majority group.
Speaking in an interview with Peace News, Mr. James Quayson said that, he is confident of winning a case in the face of the law and moral conscience.
“In jurisdictions where democracy properly works, this suit wouldn’t have been entertained in the first place, but I know I have a political case and not a court case” he said.
He disclosed how even some honorable members of the ruling party (NPP) expresses their discomfort on what their party is doing because they know that, it’s not the right way though they don’t agree to it but they can’t do anything since they need to be country.
He further expressed his gratitude to all voices of the conscience and urged them to always be on the side of the truth to save Ghana’s revered democracy.
Touching on the current economic situation, Mr. James Quayson said that, he believes that the economic managers have woefully failed all Ghanaians.
According to him, the rippling effect of the recent rampant upsurge in fuel prices, increase on prices of food commodities, high unemployment rate amongst the university graduates discourages the urgency to pursue higher education and further described it as worrying.
Finally, he entreated the government to take practical and immediate steps to ease the economic hardships Ghanaians are facing.
