Assin North MP James Gyakye Quayson Resumes Parliamentary Duties After Medical Leave

James Gyakye Quayson, the Member of Parliament for Assin North, has returned to his parliamentary duties after an extended period away for medical treatment abroad. The MP, who faced health challenges, had been absent for most of the last parliamentary session but is now back and ready to serve his constituents and Ghana as a whole.

Addressing the media in Parliament, Mr. Gyakye Quayson assured that he is in good health and fully committed to working for his constituents and the nation. He stated, “I am alive and strong…Sometimes in life, you have to take care of yourself. I am back in full swing and I am going to take care of my constituents, caucus, and country Ghana.”

Expressing confidence in the National Democratic Congress (NDC), he declared optimism about the party’s success in the upcoming general elections, saying, “We are going to win, and we are going to succeed again. Let’s keep hope alive.”

Gyakye Quayson has been entangled in legal battles since being elected as MP in the 2020 general elections. Following a Supreme Court order to expunge his name from parliament, a bye-election was held in Assin North, and he reclaimed the seat after securing victory with 57.56% of the votes.

Despite the legal challenges, including charges of forgery and perjury, the MP emphasized that it would not be productive to discuss the case while it is ongoing. He conveyed his trust in the legal system, stating, “it is not a black-and-white situation; we have to allow time and let the legal system do its work.”

Gyakye Quayson’s return to parliamentary activities comes after undergoing a critical health emergency in Canada in November 2023.
