President Nana Akufo Addo has called out the Alan Kyeremanteng led Movement for Change and the opposition National Democratic Congress insisting he is aware the two are behind Kwadwo Owusu Aduomi’s independent candidature in Tuesday’s Ejisu by elections.

Making his last remarks as the NPP wraps up its campaigns in Ejisu, the president asserted, “I know that the butterfly and the umbrella are behind the independent candidate. They are people who do not want the good of the New Patriotic Party. I send them this caution that they will never succeed on this course.”

The president further refuted claims from the Aduomi camp pointing to a grand scheme to rig the elections in favor of the New Patriotic Party’s Lawyer Kwabena Boateng.

“I have heard very surprising things. Is Aduomi claiming that while he contested on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party, the party had to rig elections to help him win the Ejisu Seat?” He questioned.

Further taking a dig at Ing. Owusu Aduomi’s camp, he questioned the motive behind defecting from the NPP to stage a comeback when Mr. Aduomi also defeated a cabinet minister to become the NPP’s parliamentary candidate in 2008.

“He contested the man who was later elevated to the position of minister of foreign affairs and regional integration when I resigned to contest as flagbearer for the NPP. At the time he won his primaries, the NPP was sweet. Now that he has also lost to someone else, he feels hurt,” President Akufo Addo teased.

The president further described as fallacious the insistence by Ing Aduomi that he – Ing. Aduomi – reserves the right to take credit for the road constructed in Ejisu while he served as Member of Parliament.

The president contended, “in the whole country, there is only one man who grants approval for every road infrastructural project. That man is myself.”

He therefore charged the people of Ejisu to elect Lawyer Kwabena Boateng as Parliamentary Candidate to facilitate the continuation of all ongoing developmental projects in Ejisu.

The president, his vice and now flagbearer of the NPP Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia together with the entire executive leadership of the New Patriotic Party, ministers, government functionaries and NPP Member of Parliament are present in Ejisu for the by-election occasioned by the passing of Lawyer Dr. John Kumah who died while in office.
