Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a flagbearer hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), is optimistic about his chances of securing victory in the upcoming party’s flagbearer election.
Mr. Agyapong, who currently serves as the Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), joins the ranks of eight other individuals who have already obtained the nomination forms since the party commenced the nomination process.
Speaking with reporters, Kwame Owusu, the campaign manager for Kennedy Agyapong, emphasized that the candidate’s disciplinary demeanor has resonated strongly with the party’s grassroots, attracting significant support.
“We believe in the grassroots. The people are excited about what honourable Ken stands for. Honourable Ken does not stand for indiscipline. Honourable is honest in terms of his dealing with the country. Honourable Ken is patriotic that he will die for Ghana, and he has demonstrated that.
So most of the time if you hear him talking loud or making a case, it is what people will come in and say that he is not conforming. Of course, he is not conforming because he stands for the ordinary people and ordinary people are not conformists,” he said.
Mr Owusu said his disciplinary nature would give him the edge over his contenders, saying “People want somebody who is disciplined because there is too much indiscipline in this country. Indiscipline leads to corruption and once you see a man that you believe is honest, and you are going to work for him, it has to be at the back of your mind that whatever you do you are going to face the whip very squarely.”
