Boakye Kyerematen Agyarko, a contender for the NPP flagbearer position, has vehemently denied allegations surrounding his purported withdrawal from the highly charged presidential primaries within the party.
In a brief statement, Mr. Agyarko refuted such assertions as baseless, affirming his unwavering readiness to face the upcoming run-off to decide the tie between him and flagbearer hopeful, Addai Nimo.
Meanwhile, flagbearer hopefuls for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Boakye-Agyarko and Addai-Nimoh set to battle out for 5th position in run-off election scheduled to occur on Saturday, September 2, 2023.
Both candidates secured nine (9) votes each in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential race organised on Saturday to shortlist five candidates for the ultimate on November 4, 2023.
