The Constituency Chairman for Ejisu in the Ashanti region, Mr. Kofi Ampofo Agyapong, has been stopped from contesting the parliamentary primaries of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Ejisu.

The nominations were opened today, Tuesday, 2 April 2024 for interested members to pick forms to contest in the party primaries after the death of the MP for the area, John Kumah.

The Constituency Chairman, however, showed interest in picking and contesting in the primaries, but the Former Majority Leader and MP for Suame, Osei Kyei-Mensa-Bonsu as well as the General Secretary of the Party intervened for him to rescind his decision.

Addressing the media today at the official opening of the nomination at the Ejisu Constituency Office, the Ashanti regional Chairman of the party, Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako popularly called Wontumi confirmed the intervention.

He said if the Chairman resigns to contest in the primaries, it will affect the party negatively in the constituency, especially as the party goes to the polls in December.
