Following the announcement by the Electoral Commission to organise a by-election in Assin North on the 27th of June, 2023, a constituency executive member of the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Volta region Oscar Komla Bedzra has advised constituents of the Assin North Constituency not to disappoint the embattled James Gyakye Quayson.
In a statement on his Facebook Post, Oscar Bedzra stated "Dear Assin North constituents. I believe you are very much wise to make the right choice and that undoubtedly is Hon. Gyakye Quayson. I encourage you to vote massively for him. Do not disappoint him. You have done it before. I believe you will do it again. Thank you all."
He urged constituents not to fall for what he described as the ruling NPP's 'rushed projects' indicating that the projects will be halted after the by-election.
Oscar Bedzra is however confident that the people of Assin North will not fall for the alleged NPP's vote-buying antics as in the case of Kumawu Constituency where each delegate was given as low as twenty Ghana cedis (Gh¢20.00).
