Be smart otherwise you’ll suffer jail sentence alone if… – Okyere Baafi tells embattled Assin North MP

New Juaben South Member of Parliament Michael Okyere Baafi has told the embattled Assin North lawmaker, James Gyekye Quayson to be smart and advise himself accordingly following his court case if he is found guilty.

“Sometimes you have to be very smart. Your people can urge you on but a time you will be lonely. That is what has happened. Whether he likes or not he will only get the support.”

His comments come after the Supreme Court set April 13 to rule on the injunction application filed by private citizen Michael Ankomah Nimfah to prevent Mr Quayson from performing parliamentary duties.

Michael Ankomah Nimfah on January 27, filed an interlocutory injunction against from performing his parliamentary duties after a high Court Judgment.

James Gyakye Quayson had his seat declared vacant by Cape Coast High Court following issue of dual citizenship in July 28, 2021.

The Supreme Court panel of seven presided over by Justice Jones Victor Dotse with Justice Agnes Dordzie, Justice Nene Amegatcher, Justice Mariama Owusu, Justice Gertrude Torkornoo, Justice Henrietta Mensah Bonsu and Justice Yonni Kulendi fixed the date after hearing the parties.

Earlier the Apex court had dismissed a review of application blocking the hearing of the injunction filed by Michael Ankomah Nimfah.

Counsel for the MP led by Tsatsu Tsikata withdrew the motion on stay of proceedings afterwhich it was struck out by the court.
