Cape Coast High Court Places Injunction On the Swearing-in of the Assin North MP
Michael Nina Ankoma, the petitioner has been threatened not to step foot at Assin Breku.
A Cape Coast High court has granted an injunction restraining the Member of Parliament-elect for Assin North, Richard Quayson, from being sworn-in into the 8th Parliament on Thursday, January 7, 2021.
This is after a petition filed by one Michael Ankomah-Nimfa of Assin Bereku who claims Mr Quayson holds dual citizenship of Ghana and Canada.
In the substantive case, Mr Ankomah-Nimfa is seeking to annul the declaration of Mr Quayson as the winner of polls because of the dual citizenship claims.
Supporters of Assin North NDC has today gone wild with the ruling of the Cape Coast High court for placing court injunction on the swearing-in of the Assin North for allegedly holding dual citizenship at the time of filing to contest the 2020 election.
The ruling which was attended by heavy security personnels didn't go well with some Assin North diehard NDC supporters and they thronged to the streets of Cape Coast Protesting about the ruling to express their displeasure.
The NDC supporters and residents from Assin north have threatened the petitioner, Michael Nina Ankoma not to step foot in Assin Breku. They say they will deal with him and his family seriously.
