NPP primary: AE  predicts 80% acclamation for Dr. Kumah

African Editors (AE) has predicted 80% for Ghana’s Deputy Minister and Member of Parliament for Ejisu in Ashanti Region Dr. John Ampontuah Kumah in the upcoming NPP primaries scheduled for Saturday January 27, 2024.

The Church of Pentecost auditorium in Ejisu was filled to capacity on Wednesday, January 24, as chiefs and constituents gathered for an acclamation ceremony for Ejisu’s Member of Parliament, John Ampontuah Kumah.

Dr. John Ampontuah Kumah secured an uncontested victory in the New Patriotic Party’s Parliamentary primaries, making it necessary for the party to hold an acclamation ceremony as per its constitution.

As the Deputy Finance Minister, Dr. Ampontuah Kumah is the first incumbent MP in the Ejisu Constituency to win without facing any opposition. He is one of five NPP MPs in the Ashanti Region who were uncontested in the party’s parliamentary primaries.

During the acclamation event, which was officiated by Electoral Commission officials and attended by some NPP regional executives, Dr. Ampontuah Kumah was officially designated as the party’s candidate for the upcoming 2024 Parliamentary elections.

After the acclamation, Dr. Kumah expressed his gratitude to his constituents and acknowledged their support. He highlighted that his uncontested victory is a testament to the positive impact he has made in Ejisu.

Dr. Kumah reiterated his commitment to empowering the youth, improving infrastructure, and tirelessly advocating for the development of the constituency in Parliament. He emphasized that his work would extend beyond Ejisu to the entire Ashanti Region and pledged to work hard to achieve the party’s goal of breaking the eight-year cycle of governance. He outlined his plans for a vigorous campaign, including one-on-one meetings, visits to churches and mosques, and a dedicated focus on hard work until the target is met.
