Ejisu By-election: You need an NPP MP to convince me to help you – Akufo-Addo to constituents

In order to demonstrate his power, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo declared that only NPP members could support development initiatives in the Ejisu constituency until he left office.

His comments come in response to Kwabena Owusu Aduomi’s declaration that she would run independently in the next Ejisu by-election.

Speaking at a meeting in Ejisu, President Akufo-Addo highlighted that he will continue to serve as the nation’s leader until January 7, 2025, and that he will have the last say on any projects pertaining to development, especially those involving roads.

Ejisu By-election: You need an NPP MP to convince me to help you – Akufo-Addo to constituents

In order to secure effective representation for Ejisu, President Akufo-Addo called on the people to support Kwabena Boateng, expressing the need for a majority in Parliament.

“From today to 7th January 2025, the NPP government is in power under the leadership of Akufo-Addo. If you’re looking for someone who can convince the NPP president, then we need an NPP member and not an independent member who we don’t know. If he is getting help from some actors in the background to bad-mouth the party. Their plan will fail. It won’t happen,” President Akufo-Addo stated.

In a direct appeal to the constituents, he continued, “I came here to plead with you to help me. You can see what is happening in Parliament now. We need a majority even if it’s one vote to help us compete in Parliament and that one vote is Kwabena Boateng.”

He acknowledged the significant roles of Ejisu’s MPs, stating, “I know that Members of Parliament for Ejisu are mostly Ministers and even though there is a shorter time, I will see what I can do about it if you vote for him,” to an enthusiastic crowd in Ejisu.

The death of Dr. John Kumah on March 7, 2024, from a fatal illness, made the April 30, 2024, by-election necessary. In the meantime, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has decided to focus on the next national election by pulling out of the by-election.
