NDC to decide on Ejisu by-election on April 16

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti Region has revealed that a final verdict on the party's involvement in the forthcoming Ejisu by-election will be reached on Tuesday, April 16, 2024.

This declaration comes in response to the Electoral Commission's (EC) scheduling of the by-election for April 30, 2024, after the passing of John Kumah on March 7, 2024.

John Kumah, aged 45, succumbed to a brief illness, leaving behind a wife and six children.

Speaking in an interview on Citi TV on Monday, April 9, Dr. Frank Amoakohene, the NDC's Ashanti Regional Secretary, affirmed that the party will soon clarify its stance on the election.

He added that the party has already identified a candidate for the constituency and awaits guidance from the national leadership.

“We in the NDC are far ahead in terms of the processes leading into this by-election and we have a candidate already.

“We had not earlier come out with a firm stance on whether we were participating or not because we were hoping and waiting to hear the date and the declaration that the seat is vacant.

“So we are considering a lot of things on our desk and I am very sure that we will be guided by all the research work that has been done and I am sure that by Tuesday, we will be able to put to rest all the debate on whether we are contesting or not,” he explained.
