First Timers for the NPP Presidential Primaries

The following Aspirants will be contesting the NPP Presidential Primaries for the first time since the establishment of the Party in this year 2023 Presidential Primaries:

1. Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia

2. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong

3. Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto

4. Kwadwo Poku

5. Odeneho Nana Oppong.

Definitely, there will be surprises ahead of the August and November 2023 Primaries.

The contest will be one of the hottest and competitive just like 1996, 1998 and 2007 Presidential Primaries.

"An Eye for an Eye will certainly leaves everyone in the Party blind for 2024. Let's be measured with the attacks on competitors for the Flagbearership Position.

Extreme attacks will make it extremely difficult to reconcile and cooperate for the Victory 2024.

Based on the prevailing circumstances within the Party and the expectations of the Ghanaian people, may the Delegates of NPP elect the best and appropriate candidate for the 2024 general election.

Wish all candidates the best of luck.
