Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has announced his ambition to contest for Presidency on the tickets of the NPP.
Speaking to the media, Ken Agyapong said when he wins the primaries and general elections, he will change the mindset of Ghanaians within his first 100 days in office as the President.
Ken Agyapong proposed that if the incumbent NPP government should ‘break the eight’ in 2024, then it must be him.
He noted that he will create employment for the unemployed youth and change their fortunes.
“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.
Mr. Agyapong added that he is the best person possible to continue the legacy of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
“When you look at Ghana at the moment, the only person to continue President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s legacy is me, Kennedy Agyapong and that is the confidence I have.
“If we make a mistake and select any other person apart from me, the NDC will win the elections and will not continue the legacy of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. If you look at the mistake, we did in 2008 by fighting ourselves and allowing the NDC to win the 2008 elections, President John Agyekum Kufuor’s uncompleted works were halted, but this time, I am appealing to the members of the NPP not to do such a mistake again,” he said.
Agyapong added, “We should make sure that we break the eight and I am the only person who can break the eight for the NPP…if they need a new face as the new brand for the NPP, then it is Kennedy Agyapong’s ticket…If members of the NPP will vote for me as the flagbearer, I will beat Mahama hands down. I have what it takes to beat Mahama [in any election].”
Mr Agyapong addressed his NPP party folks and told them to vote massively for him when the primary elections are held so he can change Ghana.
“Ghanaians should have confidence in me because whatever I have said to myself that I will do by the grace of God I have done it. I am going to change the fortunes of the youth in our country because we have to create employment for the unemployed graduates…
“I will contest the flagbearship race and I will win. I am appealing to the members of the NPP that if they want to ‘Break The Eight’ you break the eight with Kennedy Agyapong because I walk the talk and have love for Ghanaians.
“I am the hope for the hopeless and voice for the voiceless,” Kennedy Agyapong stressed.
