Kennedy Agyapong has delared that he has nothing to be scared of concerning his two perceived rivals in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer race, Alan Kyeremanten and Dr Bawumia.
According to the Assin Central Member of Parliament, there is nothing in the numbers or surveys showing him that he is supposed to be scared of either the Trade Minister or Vice President running away with the flagbearer nomination.
“There is nothing electorally fearful about Alan and Bawumia, everyone will have to sell what they have done for the party, if their idea is bought, you move forward. And I know that I have done a lot for the NPP on which basis the grassroots will vote for me,” he said in an interview.
Kennedy Agyapong further went on to declare that he has in his possession a survey telling him that almost 90% of the youth are interested in voting for him.
“If I am the choice of the youth, and the youth are going to vote for me, then delegates should look at the youth, 88% of whom have committed to voting for me per a survey. Consider their preference and vote for me,” he stated.
In May 2022, Kennedy Agyapong stated his intention to campaign for the NPP flagbearer spot to lead the party for the 2024 elections.
“Yes, it is true. I have decided that when the NPP opens nominations, I will pick a form and file my nomination to contest the party primaries as the flagbearer…I will stand on the ticket of the NPP and nothing will change,” Kennedy Agyapong said in a Facebook live interview with The Announcer Newspaper, Wednesday, May 26.
Other candidates who have declared are former NPP General Secretary, Kwabena Agyapong and former Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko.
The two perceived frontrunners, Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Alan Kyeremanten are yet to formally declare their intentions are they’re both actively involved in government.
Bawumia recently addressed the speculations and said he is currently focused on helping President Akufo-Addo to turn things around for Ghanaians.
“I think right now, I’m just focused on helping my boss the president Nana Akufo-Addo fufill his vision and deliver on his agenda. We don’t really have too much time for thinking about 2024 right now. I think that if you get to 2024 and you don’t have a record, you will have nothing to campaign on. So right now, we are focused on that and we don’t know what the future holds but we will focus on the work for now.” He said.
