The ousted Member of Parliament for Assin North constituency in the Central region, Mr James Gyakye Quayson says he was in good spirits and unshaken by events leading to the annulment of his election.

"All my beloved constituents should be assured that I am in high spirit and confident that this momentary travesty shall rather make us emerge stronger," he reassured constituents.

"Take heart and be of good cheer; the victory of the NDC and all true democrats shall not be stolen," he stated.

A release issued and signed by Mr Quayson today, Thursday, July 29, 2021, urged all his constituents and all democratic Ghanaians not to be worried or discouraged, adding that the confirmation of the party's historic victory beckoned.

"Our massive victory in Assin North on December 7, 2020 was a pure and legitimate one handed over to us by the discerning people of Assin North and we shall resist every attempt to subvert the true will of the people," he stated.

He said the victory from the masses was far superior to the dark machinations of an elite few.

Mr Quayson expressed appreciation for the outpouring of support and solidarity since the judicial events of yesterday saying the show of support had renewed his confidence in a brighter future for the country regardless of the "treacherous momentary setbacks,"

"I am absolutely grateful to the chiefs and people of Assin North for the remarkable show of love and unparalleled resilience," he said.

The solidarity from the rank and file of the NDC and the general public as a whole has renewed my confidence in a brighter future for this country regardless of the treacherous momentary setbacks.

Mr Quayson said the facts showed that he had been a sincere, loyal, law abiding and patriotic citizen who only set out in good conscience to come and serve the people of Assin North with all his heart and capacity.

"As the unimpeachable facts show, I have always been a sincere, loyal, law abiding and patriotic citizen who only set out in good conscience to come serve the great people of Assin North with all my heart and with all my capacity adding that the Almighty Lord is on our side - we fear no foe.
