Former assistant to Akuapem South Member of Parliament Osei Bonsu Amoah, Eric Apeadu Yeboah, has emerged victorious to represent the constituency in parliament.

With 267 votes, Apeadu Yeboah, 38, defeated his nearest opponent, Municipal Chief Executive Frank Aidoo, who received 69 votes. Other candidates Kwame Ofori Gyawu and Samuel Annor Mensah received 152 and 54 votes, respectively, in the primary that was held in the Eastern region on Saturday, March 2, 2024 in Aburi.

On Thursday, January 25, 2024, the NPP formally declared that the Akuapem South primary would be postponed in response to petitions and suggestions from the regional and constituency executive committees.

Osei Bonsu Amoah’s withdrawal from the competition had an impact on this choice.

On February 19, the National Executives Committee of the NPP gave Frank Aidoo permission to run in the parliamentary primary. Aidoo had submitted his nomination on the understanding that he would be considered if OB Amoah resigned.

After being proclaimed the winner, Eric Apeadu Yeboah thanked Hon. OB Amoah for his support in carrying on the tradition in a media interview.

Prior to the December 7, 2024, elections, he promised to promote party unity in order to maximize NPP votes and secure Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s victory in the 2024 presidential race.

Members of the party in the Constituency were urged to back the candidate by OB Amoah.
