The member of parliament for Assin North constituency in the central region, Hon. James Gyakye Quayson has appealed to the court to fast track his case and have it concluded to enable him to continue his work.

Speaking to the media, the member of parliament said although he is being blocked from parliament by the court, he is doing everything possible to help his constituents.
Honourable James Gyakye further reiterated that the only party that can rescue the ailing economy due to mismanagement of President Akufo-Addo and his government and bring relieve to Ghanaians is the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
However, aspiring candidate for the NDC and former president of Ghana John Dramani Mahama toke a swipe at the judiciary accusing it of being unfair under the leadership of the ruling New Patriotic Party.
Former president Mahama promised to ensure that Assin North Constituency seat remains theirs.
