The National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Akamba, says the embattled Assin North MP, Joe Gyaakye Quayson, has not been invited by the Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID).
Joshua Akamba says he’s asked Joe Gyaakye Quayson whether there’s a development like that, but Mr Quayson says there is nothing like that.
The National Organizer of the NDC says he’s been travelling with Joe Quayson in the Central Region for some time, but they are yet to see or hear of any invitation from the police.
He believes it’s a propaganda spin introduced by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to excite their supporters that something was brewing.
“I doubt if there’s a case like that. He’s not aware that anybody has invited him. I have asked him, and I have enquired from the police whether there’s such an issue, and they said, no.”
He adds, “I am sure it’s part of the propaganda that’s intended to make the people happier. So, it’s part of the propaganda game the NPP is playing. “
Mr Akamba said, after the court proceedings, Joe Quayson had not been to the constituency, and so after they filed the appeal processes at the courts in Cape Coast, they heard that the constituents wanted to see him.
Therefore, he maintains, they went to the Assin North Constituency upon the invitation of the constituents.
“This is not organized, but his people had actually wanted to see him, and so they pleaded that he should come around so that they see him,” he said.
He said there were social media comments that Joe Quayson had been arrested and reports that the police were looking for him so, they to accompanied him to tell his people that he’s well and safe and that he would go through the court processes.
The NDC says they are sure that God will raise his hands and justice would be served at the end of all the brouhaha.
A Cape Coast High Court last week annulled the parliamentary election in the Constituency because the MP was not qualified to run at the time because he had not completed the processes leading to the renunciation of his Canadian citizenship.
