The Minority Leader, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu has revealed that the Attorney-General and the Police administration are acting in bad faith just to get an unfair advantage in Parliament for the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government in its unbridled quest to pass the obnoxious E-levy.
He believes that, attempts by the police administration to compel one of the lawyers who represents Hon. James Gyakye Quayson in the Assin North Election to make him [Assin North MP] available for service of a criminal charge on him for prosecution is in bad faith.
Reacting to recent multiple suits filed against the Member of Parliament for Assin North, Hon. James Gyakye Quayson, the Minority Leader stated that this “latest act of desperation which has the active endorsement of the Attorney General and Minister for Justice comes at a time an Appeal and an Application for Stay of Execution filed against the Cape Coast High Court’s annulment of the 2020 Assin North Parliamentary Election is still pending before the Court of Appeal.”
“The will of the good people of Assin North who voted for Hon. James Quayson to represent them in Parliament cannot also be subverted by these DESPERATE manoeuvers of the Akufo Addo government,” he stated.
He also noted that “the Minority Caucus in Parliament and its gallant 137 Members will remain resolute against the obnoxious E-levy because it is regressive, punitive and will not advance the interest and welfare of our people, especially at this time when Ghanaians are already overburdened with draconian taxes left, right and center, amidst growing economic hardships.”
