Chairman for the National Risk Communications and Social Mobilisation Committee for the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Dacosta Aboagye has joined others who want to replace the Kumawu MP who passed away recently.
Dr. Aboagye, who before the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic was Director of Health Promotion at the Ghana Health Service (GHS) has picked nomination at the Kumawu constituency office of the ruling New Patriotic Party pending a selection on April 23.
A statement signed by the party’s General Secretary, Justin Koduah Frimpong, said the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will hold election on Sunday, April 23, 2023 to select a parliamentary candidate to contest on the ticket of the party in the Kumawu Constituency by-election in the Ashanti region.
Parliament, before adjourning sine die for the Easter holidays, notified the Electoral Commission (EC) of the need to conduct a by-election in the Kumawu Constituency following the death of Philip Basoa, the NPP Member of Parliament (MP) for the area.
The EC is yet to fix a date for the by-election.
The Justin Kodua Frimpong-signed statement also announced the timelines for the party’s primary, indicating nomination would be opened from April 11 and close on April 14, 2023.
