Former president John Agyekum Kufuor’s second son, Rev. Edward Agyekum Kufuor, has withdrawn from the Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary race just three days ahead of the governing New Patriotic Party’s primary scheduled for 29 December 2018.

Mr Kufuor, who is also an actor and businessman, withdrew over “personal reasons”.

This means five aspirants, who have been cleared by the party for the primary, are left in the race to elect a candidate to contest the 31 January 2019 by-election of the Constituency following the death of MP Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko.

They include Lydia Alhassan, a widow of the late Ayawaso West Wuogon MP, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko.

The other four aspirants include Victoria Esinam Ansah Offei, an Assembly Member for Legon Electoral Area; Samuel Amankwah, a former Constituency Youth Organiser; Yaa Aboagye and Ato Williams.

Mr Agyarko died on 21 November this year and will be on 26 January 2019 at his hometown Odumase-Krobo.

Whoever emerges victor among the five NPP aspirants will be facing competition from one of three aspirants of the biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), which has set 28 December 2018 for its primary ahead of the by-election.

The three aspirants are Mr Ekwow Acquah, Mr Delali Kwasi Brempong and Ms Donna Selassie Agbo.

Three other aspirants, Alhaji Isaah Kamara, Ms Catherine Abrokwa Mante and Kojo Twum Boafo, failed to file their nominations before the party’s deadline.Former president John Agyekum Kufuor’s second son, Rev.
