Former MP for Ejisu announces independent candidacy in upcoming by-election. Learn more about this political development now.

Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, the former member of parliament for Ejisu for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has made the decision to run as an independent in the next by-election.

His decision is a result of what he sees as the NPP National Leadership’s unwillingness to address important issues with the current Delegates Album, which he feels compromises party equity and integrity. Friday, April 12, 2024, saw the release of a statement by Mr. Owusu Aduomi’s campaign assistant, Nana Osei Bonsu, revealing that the anomalies noted during the Ejisu polling station executive elections had a significant impact on his choice.

These anomalies, which included the purportedly random selection of people by the NPP’s regional executives and the late MP of Ejisu, John Kumah, were judged unacceptable in a Democratic community.

“The genesis of this decision traces back to the tumultuous Ejisu polling station executive elections, marred by irregularities that would have been deemed unacceptable in any democratic society.

“Rather than adhering to the democratic process, the late MP of Ejisu, with the assistance of the Regional Executives of the NPP, arbitrarily handpicked individuals to fill key positions—a blatant disregard for the party’s constitution and its fundamental principles.

“Such actions have rightfully stirred vehement protests from conscientious party members and stakeholders across the nation. The issue has even found its way into the courts for adjudication, underscoring the gravity of the situation and the need for redress.

“Hon. Owusu-Aduomi’s decision to contest the by-election as an independent candidate underscores his unwavering commitment to upholding democratic values and ensuring transparency and accountability within the party. By refusing to participate in an ostensibly flawed process, he sends a clear message that integrity and fairness must prevail, even at the expense of personal political aspirations.”
