Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, a contender for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential candidacy has expressed confidence in his vision for Ghana’s economic prosperity as he looks ahead to the crucial November 4 primary. Nonetheless, Dr. Akoto has affirmed his readiness to throw his full support behind whoever the delegates select to carry the NPP’s banner in the 2024 general elections.
Addressing the press in Accra, Dr. Akoto emphasized that the Party’s November 4 presidential primaries hold significant importance but not to the extent of being a decisive factor for the Party.
He extended gratitude to the delegates for granting him the opportunity to participate in the primary and urged his supporters to exert every effort to secure victory on November 4.
Dr. Akoto pointed to his unwavering dedication to the UP tradition, evident in his extensive service to the Party—an attribute he believes has endeared him to the Party’s delegates.
He stressed that the presidential race should serve to consolidate the NPP, rather than create divisions, with the collective goal of ‘breaking the 8’ in 2024.
