After James Gyakye Quayson was sworn in as a member of parliament for Assin North on Tuesday, July 4, former president John Dramani Mahama sent him his congratulations.
What a man tries to break apart, the Good Lord securely keeps together, Mr. Mahama said in a tweet. Congratulations on being sworn in twice during the same legislative session, Hon. James Gyakye Quayson, as the Member of Parliament for the Assin North Constituency.
James Gyakye Quayson took the oaths of allegiance and membership in parliament, which were delivered by Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, speaker of the house.
Numerous luminaries attended the ceremony and were seated in the Public Gallery.
John Dramani Mahama, a 2024 presidential candidate and former representative of the House, served as the leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC). He was joined by NDC leadership and ex-government officials.
Chiefs from Assin were present in the House to observe the ritual, along with members of the church.
After winning the by-election on June 27, Mr. Gyakye Quayson took the oath of office.
He won the seat he has held since 2021 by defeating Charles Opoku of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Bernice Enyonam Sefenu of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG).
He was removed from office by a Supreme Court decision that mandated the removal of his name from all legislative records.
