The special aide to O. B Amoah, the incumbent Member of Parliament for Akuapem South, Eric Apeadu Yeboah has emerged as the winner in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primary for the constituency.

During the election held on Saturday, March 2, 2024, Mr Yeboah secured 267 votes out of the total valid votes cast, representing 49.3% of the vote share, thus securing the parliamentary candidacy for the constituency.

The Municipal Chief Executive, Frank Aidoo, garnered 69 votes, Eric Samuel Annor Mensah received 54 votes, and Kwame Ofori Gyae secured 152 votes.

This was after 574 delegates gathered at the Presby Women’s College of Education in Aburi to partake in the election.

Initially, the party leadership had postponed the election following the withdrawal of the incumbent Member of Parliament, O.B Amoah, from the contest. However, after deliberations, the Municipal Chief Executive of the area, Frank Aidoo, was added to the ballot.

Although the process commenced smoothly, there were almost disruptions when allegations arose that one of the candidates had confined some delegates in a nearby room.

Fortunately, swift intervention by security personnel and regional executives prevented the situation from escalating.
