A statement signed by the party's General Secretary, Johnson Aseidu Nketia said the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) acting on behalf of the National Executive Committee (NEC) notified the constituency executives in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency to open nomination for the Parliamentary Primaries in accordance with article 41 of the NDC constitution.

Picking of nominations forms starts from today, Monday 17 to 18 December 2018.

The filing of nomination will be on Friday, 21 December 2018, vetting will be on Saturday, 22 December 2018 and elections on Friday, 28 December 2018.


The cost of nominations forms and filing fees is GH¢1,000 and GH¢10,000 respectively, with a 50 per cent discount on the filing fees for females and persons with disability.

However, pollster Ben Ephson has revealed that John Dumelo and son of former president John Agyekum Kufuor, Chief Kufour are likely to stand for the Ayawaso West Wuogon seat.

He said the NPP may consider Chief Kufour as a compromise to quench the simmering tension between the wives of the late Member of Parliament for the area, Emmanuel Kyeremanten Agyarko who have clashed over the seat of their late husband.

The two wives are his first and legitimate wife of the late MP, Naana Agyarko and one Lydia Alhassan.
