A KPMG Professor of Accounting at the University of Florida, Stephen Kwaku Asare has called on Ghana’s judiciary to do more in upholding the rule of law in an environment that is deemed as highly political. This follows a  decision by the courts to annull the Assin North Parliamentary elections when it ruled that Mr. Quayson owed allegiance to another country other than Ghana at the time of filing his nomination forms to contest the polls, a decision which has subsequently been upheld by the Supreme Court.

Reacting to the decision on his Facebook page, Mr. Asare described the ruling as preposterous saying he cannot support the line of reasoning. ”

“The case against him is that he did not compel the Canadian officials to process his renunciation application quickly enough such that even if the renunciation became effective before the elections and was accepted by the EC, he must be forced to vacate his post for a bye-election that he is fully eligible to compete in”. said, Professor Asare.
