Assin North MP Case Adjourns Again
The Cape Coast High Court has adjourned the case involving the Assin North dual citizenship MP to June 8, 2021.
This comes after the 1st respondent Joe Gyekye Quayson was not served notice that his lawyer Abraham Amalibas is backing out as his counsel for the case.
Mr Amaliba filed a motion to withdraw as counsel for the Assin North lawmaker.
He accused Justice Kwasi Boakye, the trial judge of bias, in a case in which Michael Ankomah Nimfah, a resident of the Assin North Constituency, is challenging the eligibility of Mr Quayson as MP.
Mr Ankomah Nimfah alleged that the MP held dual citizenship at the time of filing his nomination to contest the 2020 Parliamentary elections and thus was not qualified.
