The Independent candidate in the Ejisu by-election, Kwabene Owusu Aduomi has threatened a blood bath if any group of people attempts to undermine the integrity of the election through violence.

Addressing a mini rally at Ejisu Zongo lorry station on Sunday, Mr. Aduomi questioned the idea behind the importing alleged vigilante groups affiliated to the NPP into the Ejisu constituency.

“I know they will never dare to bring their violent tactics here in Ejisu Zong polling station. The areas they have planned to rig the election by picking ballot boxes among other things through which they have imported vigilante boys outside the Ejisu constituency, not this Zongo can they try their violent rigging action. This is Zongo where men are in charge’’ he said.

He warned “anyone who will dare to undermine the integrity of the election through violence “ono naa obete ne piiga‘’ to wit “the person will not go free.”

He further warned “Already I have said Ejisu is the hometown of Yaa Asantewaa, descendants of Yaa Asantewaa don’t fear blood. We don’t fear but we don’t cherish violence lets hold free and fair elections. It doesn’t show glory to anyone who will say he will cheat in the election. It is village language, to say the least, allow the will of the electorate to prevail in electing who they want.”

While campaigning in the company of a huge crowd he “urged the constituents to vote massively for him to continue the good work he started in the constituency which has stalled after he was rejected in the 2020 New Patriotic Party parliamentary primary.”

He explained “I have been tagged as an NDC man but in Ejisu Constituency everybody here knows that I’m an NPP member. I’m contesting as an independent candidate because of Nana Addo’s leadership failure to promote fairness in the party’’.

Responding to President Nana Akufo Addo’s claim that Aduomi has lost his identity because he does not know where he belongs to either the NPP or the NDC.

Mr. Aduomi said “I’m loved by the NDC because I fairly represented their interest in the Ejisu constituent when I served them as the Ejisu Member of Parliament. That is why I have won their heart. Any way NDC people are also human I will not shy away from them. When you serve well as an MP for your constituency your constituents will forever support you in anything and that’s what I’m enjoying now.”

He, however, commended the national chairman Stephen Ayensu Ntim for demonstrating excellent leadership in his public comments on the Ejisu by-election and other internal party issues in the constituency.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service is expected to deploy over 7000 police personnel to the Ejisu constituency to police the entire constituency to provide safe security for the entire constituency before during, and after the elections.
