Has the NDC officially declared support for Kwabena Owusu Adoumi in the Ejisu constituency by-election?

A letter purportedly signed by the NDC General Secretary Fifi Fiavi Kwetey declaring political backing for the independent candidate and further approving logistical support for his campaign has been circulating on Facebook and X/ Twitter.

The Ejisu constituency parliamentary  seat was declared vacant following the death of the sitting MP and former deputy minister of Finance John Kumah.

Six candidates are contesting the election, and they include Esther Osei (CPP), Kwabena Boateng (NPP), Beatrice Boakye (LPG), Kwabena Owusu Aduomi (Independent), Gabriel Agyemang Joseph (Independent) and Attakorah Joseph (Independent).

However, the contest has been described by analysts as a straight fight between the New Patriotic Party candidate and Kwabena Owusu Aduomi – who is a former NPP MP for the constituency.

The largest opposition party NDC’s decision not to contest the election has led to speculations that the party has thrown its weight behind Kwabena Owusu Aduomi.


“It is fake. We saw it yesterday and I can tell you nothing like that has happened,” the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Fifi Fiavi Kwetey said in an interview when contacted by GhanaFact.


The claim is rated false.
