Ejisu by-election: Wontumi disgrace during campaign (Watch)

The Ashanti Regional chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, alias Wontumi, was booed in the Ejisu Constituency while campaigning ahead of the by-election slated for April 30.

Optimistic of victory for the ruling party, Wontumi was met with boos and jeers as he attempted to address the crowd in Bonwire.

A group of young men expressed their displeasure, chanting, “away! away!” and declared unflinching support for former Member of Parliament for the area, Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, who is running as an independent candidate.

Aduomi, determined to reclaim the seat after losing to the late John Kumah in the 2020 primaries, is one of three independents vying for the position.

The NPP’s candidate, lawyer Kwabena Boateng, faces competition from Aduomi and two other independent candidates, Gabriel Agyemang Joseph and Attakorah Joseph.

Candidate of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP), Esther Osei of the CPP and Beatrice Boakye of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) are also vying for the slot.

However, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has chosen not to contest to focus on December general elections.
