The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has announced that he will run in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) primaries to determine the party’s flagbearer for the 2028 presidential elections.
Ken Agyapong urged his supporters not to be disheartened by the outcome of the November 4 presidential race, in which he did not emerge victorious to lead the party, at the ‘Showdown’ Thanksgiving Service and Party he held on Saturday, November 11, 2023, to express profound gratitude to the teeming supporters and his campaign team.
Ken Agyapong divulged to his followers and members of the campaign team to reflect on their surprise performance and see the inroads and chances they have for their comeback in the next 4 years.
“I want to extend my gratitude to the campaign team and all the supporters. I know we fought a good fight in every contest; there would be a winner and a loser. But this contest was between a man and the whole system. They underestimated me and my team. They predicted I would not get more than 10 percent. But today, all those who made the claim are indoors and feel ashamed.
“Let’s keep hope alive. Let’s keep hope alive that in the next 3–4 years, we will give them another showdown. God bless,” he said. About the NPP primaries
