I’ll win November 4 presidential primaries- Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto
A flagbearer aspirant of the New Patriotic Party ( NPP), Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto has said that he will win the party’s presidential primary slated for 4th November 2023.
Dr. Owusu Afriyie noted that given the vision that he has so far espoused, he is the only aspirant who has clearly shown the way as to how he intends to diversify the country’s agricultural sector through policies and programs to turn Ghana’s economy around and take Ghanaians out from the perennial hardships that they go through.
Interacting with a cross section of the media at his campaign office after placing third ( 3rd) on the ballot in the NPP presidential primary scheduled for November 4, he said he is Ghana’s hope for the future and therefore asked the delegates to ignore the intimidation and undue Influences that the other aspirants are employing and massively come along with him.
“We were five going into November 4 polls but one has backed down.An impression has been created that the party machinery is skewing things to favour a particular candidate. The leadership of the party must create a free environment devoid of any intimidation to allow delegates of our great NPP to decide who should lead the party going into election 2024.With that, it is easier to close our ranks, come together, and support whoever won the primary, ” he said.
Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, who is former two — term Member of Parliament ( MP) placed 4th in the NPP Special Delegates Conference held on Saturday, 26th August 2023.
He is expected to intensify his campaign in the coming weeks as he re – strategizes ahead of the NPP November 4 primary.
More than 200, 000 party delegates are expected to exercise their franchise in the much publicized elections.
