The NDC is seeking to retain the seat in a by-election scheduled for Tuesday, June 27. The seat is currently vacant following the Supreme Court’s ruling that James Gyakye Quayson, the incumbent MP, was ineligible to hold office because he held dual citizenship.
Ghanaian actor and farmer, John Setor Dumelo, the 2020 Parliamentary Candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, has been spotted in Assin North, campaigning for the party.
Dumelo, whose possible re-election as Parliamentary Candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon has been delayed, posted a video of himself campaigning in Assin Kushea on Twitter.
In the video, he is seen riding a motorbike and shouting the NDC’s campaign slogan, “3y3 Zu.” Some of his supporters, who are not seen in the video, can be heard responding, “3y3 Za.”

The by-election is expected to be close, but the NDC is confident that they will be able to retain the seat. They have been campaigning vigorously in recent weeks, and they believe that they have the momentum to win.
