Wioso Adansi, Ghana

Andrew Asiamah Amoako is a Ghanaian politician, lawyer, and member of the eighth parliament of the fourth republic of Ghana. He is also a member of the Fomena Constituency in the Ashanti Region.

He was was born on 24 February 1966 at Wioso-Adansi, Ashanti Region of Ghana. He obtained an MSc in Environmental Resources Management and an LLB (Law) from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology as well as a professional law license (BL) from the Ghana School of Law.

Andrew Asiamah Amoako worked as a Partner at the Minka Premo and Co. (Akosombo Chambers).

He was a member of the New Patriotic Party but decided to run solo after losing in the 2020 general elections. He had been a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), which, citing Article 3(9) of its constitution, revoked his membership and notified the Speaker of Parliament, who duly declared his seat vacant on 13 October 2020 under the provisions of Article 97 (1)g of the Constitution.

He defeated Philip Ofori-Asante in the 2020 general elections securing 12,805 votes against 10,798 votes by his opponent.

His position as an independent member of parliament became even more significant after the 2020 parliamentary elections, given that neither of the two main political parties (NPP and NDC) could secure an outright majority.

In a post-election interview, Amoako indicated that he had no ill feelings towards the NPP over the termination of his party membership. The General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu, has suggested that Amoako could reapply for his NPP membership subject to specific party regulations and conditions.

He was elected Second Deputy Speaker of Ghana's 8th Parliament of the Fourth Republic on 7th March 2021.
