Accra – Member of Parliament for the Assin Central Constituency and Flagbearer aspirant for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ken Ohene Agyapong, has concluded his extensive constituency campaign tours and is gearing up for a showdown during the November 4, 2023, presidential primaries.
Agyapong’s campaign journey began with a vibrant health walk in Accra and spanned all 275 constituencies, where he engaged with delegates, sharing his vision and plans for the future of Ghana. On his official social media page, he made a strong call to action for delegates to prioritize principles over personal gain: “I urge every delegate not to sell their vote for money, but rather to base their decision on what each candidate has done and can do for you.”
Agyapong’s campaign is centered on the key principles of “Patriotism, Honesty, and Discipline” (PHD) as he aims to lead the NPP to victory in the upcoming elections. He has called on party members and delegates to carefully consider his platform when casting their votes.
The Presidential Elections Committee of the NPP has announced that the November 4 Presidential Primaries will be conducted in all constituencies across the country, with over 200,000 NPP delegates participating in the election to select a Presidential Candidate for the 2024 elections.
Professor Michael Oquaye, Chairman of the Committee, assured that the elections will be free and fair, with the Electoral Commission overseeing the process to ensure transparency and impartiality. He emphasized that no party member will be involved in conducting the elections, underscoring the commitment to an unbiased procedure.
The committee recently released guidelines for the primaries, outlining the procedures and rules for electing a presidential candidate. The four contenders for the slot are Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, MP for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong, former MP for Mampong Francis Addai-Nimoh, and former Agric Minister Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie.
As the November 4th date approaches, all eyes will be on the delegates’ decision, and the nation will be eagerly waiting to see who will emerge as the NPP’s flag bearer in this highly contested battle. The party’s future and the 2024 general elections will be greatly influenced by the outcome of these primaries.
