Supporters of Kennedy Agyapong want him to contest the 2024 presidential election as an independent candidate following his defeat to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in the NPP's presidential primary. 

Kwabena Yankey, the group’s chairperson addressing a press conference on Tuesday, cited Mr Agyapong’s significant contributions to Ghana’s economic growth as the primary reason for their support.

He highlighted Mr Agyapong’s investments in job creation and infrastructure development as evidence of his suitability for the presidency.

“We the supporters of Kennedy Agyapong representing the 37 percent of the NPP delegates, wish to inform the general public that Kennedy Agyapong needs to be the next president of Ghana. We are advocating for Kennedy Agyapong and we urge him to stand as an independent candidate for a massive win in 2024.”

While acknowledging the recent internal struggles within the NPP, Yankey maintained that Agyapong’s independent candidacy offers the best hope for national progress.

“Kennedy Agyapong renowned for his outspoken nature and unwavering love, has demonstrated his dedication through his actions and spearheaded the establishment of companies that employ 7,000 workers. His initiative to construct a state-of-the-art cardio hospital whose investment surpasses $7 million underscores his commitment to the well-being of Ghana.

“Despite the recent setbacks within the NPP, we continue to believe that supporting him as an independent candidate is crucial for Ghanaians to foster growth, innovation and social welfare of the nation.”
