Former flagbearer aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwabena Agyei Agyepong says the race as to who leads the ruling party in the 2024 presidential elections is not a two-horse race between Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Trades Minister Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen as widely perceived.
He says there are other aspirants lacing their boots, just in wait for nominations to open.
“The ground has not been opened yet,” he said on TV3‘s New Day on Monday, June 13 in an exclusive interview.
“In 2007, I was the youngest of the 17 presidential aspirants. I haven’t ruled myself out at all for this battle.
“I think it is very important that we let the Ghanaians know that our party has a time-honoured tradition that that decision cannot be earned through coercion, endorsements or force. It has to be earned by people, showing respect, going to the various places.”
He stressed any member of the party seeking the mandate of the rank and file to lead must make sure he makes that nationwide tour to every nook and cranny of the country.
“There will be no coronation in NPP,” he stressed.
“If you want to win, move around the country sell your message. You have to earn it.”
