Boateng secured 27,782 votes, representing 55.8% of the total votes cast, edging out his closest rival, Independent Candidate Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, who garnered 21,534 votes, accounting for 43.3% of the ballots.

The by-election, prompted by the untimely passing of the revered Member of Parliament and Deputy Finance Minister, Dr. John Ampontuah Kumah, on March 7, 2024, thrust Boateng into the spotlight. In his acceptance speech, Boateng underscored the significance of bridging the gap with disgruntled members within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) fold as they gear up for the pivotal 2024 elections.

"Political parties are built with multitudes; you need the people," Boateng stated emphatically, signalling his commitment to inclusive governance. "My task is to go down there and be with my people, listen to them, and whatever constitutes the disagreements, my job is to make sure that we jaw-jaw and find a common ground that will benefit the party."

Boateng's victory not only underscores his triumph but also signifies a crucial milestone for the NPP as they navigate the intricate political landscape leading to the 2024 elections. His resolute stance on inclusivity and dialogue sets a precedent for fostering unity within the party ranks, crucial for steering the NPP towards its electoral objectives.

As Boateng extends his gratitude to his supporters and party leadership, his words serve as a rallying cry for collective action and solidarity, echoing beyond the confines of Ejisu to resonate with the broader NPP constituency. In the face of looming electoral challenges, Boateng's vision for a cohesive and resilient party stands as a beacon of hope, guiding the NPP towards a future defined by unity, purpose, and success.
