The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) MP-elect for the Assin North constituency, James Quayeson has incurred the wrath of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

They claim he is a dual citizen which disqualifies him from holding any public office in Ghana.

The NPP has decided to challenge it in court to enable them reclaim the parliamentary seat.

The MP-elect reportedly holds Ghanaian and Canadian passports. Prior to the elections, Quayeson is said to have renounced his Canadian citizenship.

But the NPP on behalf of its solicitors, Marfo & Associates chambers has since written to the Comptroller of the Ghana Immigration Service for further and better particulars.
