Assin North MP Must Suffer Same Fate As Adamu Sakende – Godfred Dame



Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Godfred Dame, has said that the embattled Member of Parliament for Assin North, James Gyakye Quayson, should be made to face the same fate as the former New Patriotic Party’s Adamu Sakende.

He insisted that the cases are the same, same principles must be applied.

The late Adamu Sakende was sentenced to two years imprisonment for owing allegiance to both Ghana and Burkina Faso at the time he contested election to be a Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, an election he subsequently won.

Mr. Dame, therefore opined that there ought to be an even application of the law in the case of James Gyakye Quayson.

”I think that there ought to be an even application of the law, the same fate that befell Adamu Sakande who was not qualified at the time that nominations were opened, and we all know what happened to him.”

“Adamu Dramani Sakande found himself in a similar situation. He was not qualified by the time nominations were opened and was subsequently declared ineligible and, for that matter, his seat was taken away. So there has to be an even application of the law. If it happened to Adamu Sakande of the NPP, it should happen to a gentleman of the NDC who finds himself in the same situation.”
