In a video shared on social media, the minister whiles dancing is approached by ASP Issahaku Yakubu, ADC to the Vice President, who shepherded her off the stage.

She hurriedly run to the back of the dais as Bawumia continued his brief dance before delivering his message to the crowd.

Like other speakers, Bawumia tasked party faithful to vote massively for Ernest Anim, the NPP’s candidate who is in a four-man race to replace the late MP for Kumawu, Philip Basoah whose death necessitated the by-election.

Voters will choose a replacement for their Member of Parliament, Philip Atta Basoah, who died on 27th March this year while still serving his 3rd consecutive term.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is represented by Ernest Yaw Anim, whiles Kwasi Amankwaa is the NDC candidate. There are two independent candidates with the name Kwaku Duah also in the race.
