Yaw Baah, a former representative for the Kumawu Constituency, has withdrawn from the New Patriotic Primary race on Sunday (NPP).
After Philip Basoah passed away on May 23, the party intends to choose its nominee.
Six candidates were permitted to run in the primary after eight candidates selected nomination forms.
Nonetheless, attorney Edward Kofi Osei withdrew from consideration after allegations that he had two citizenships.
As a result, former MP Baah will be the second candidate to drop out of the contest.
“Having considered my political status and pedigree within the larger family,I have come to the conclusion that the last atom of my ‘political breath’ should be at the disposal of the national front, rather than at the periphery of Kumawu,” He wrote the head of his party’s by-election committee on Thursday, April 20.
When it comes to the “Breaking the 8” motto, I consider myself to be a major role.
If I remain outside and work to bring our party’s members together in the Constituency, I feel that the interests of my cherished Kumawu would be better represented.
He nevertheless recommended Obaapa Ama Serwaa for the position because she is not a member of any of the influential blocs in Kumawu.
