A seven-member Supreme Court panel has adjourned to May 10, 2022, a review application by embattled Assin-North MP, James Gyayke Quayson. 

After the case has been called at exactly 9:42am, the presiding judge, asked the Deputy Attorney-General present, Diana Asonaba Dapaah, whether her outfit had been served with the application. She responded in the negative. 

Similarly, Frank Davis, Counsel for Michael Ankomah Nimfah also indicated that he had not been served. 

The Court thus noted to Mr. Tsastu Tsikata, Counsel for the embattled MP that the case would be adjourned, so interested parties are served with the application. Hence, it adjourned to May 10, 2022. 


On April 13, 2022, the Supreme Court upheld an injunction application by Michael Ankomah Nimfah thus restraining the Assin North MP, James Gyakye Quayson from holding himself as an MP for the constituency.

By a 5-2 ruling, the court said the application from Michael Ankomah Nimfah succeeds.

On February 1, 2022, the applicant Michael Ankomah-Nimfah, a private citizen filed a writ seeking the interpretation of Article 94 (2a) and an injunction of the Member of Parliament from holding himself as such.

The petitioner also contended that Hon Quayson was not eligible on the basis that at the time of filing his parliamentary nomination, he held citizenship of another country (Canada) in addition to Ghana.
