The Parliamentary Candidate on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the New Juaben North constituency, Sampson Oti Boateng, has passed away.
He reportedly died on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 after a short illness according to a report filed by 3news.com.
According to the report, he met his untimely death at a hospital in Koforidua.
YEN.com.gh can not ascertain what illness exactly caused his untimely death.
He defeated Emmanuel Kwaku Asante, a former MCE, in the party’s primaries in 2019 to become the party’s candidate for the upcoming December 7 parliamentary polls.
He would have gone against the New Patriotic Party’s Kwasi Adjei-Boateng, a Deputy Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, for the seat.
NDC had to reschedule the New Juaben North primaries as a result of internal wrangling and had to conduct the exercise only this year.
As a result, the deceased had taken over from Haroun Wiredu Apaw, the 2016 candidate, for barely a month.
