The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has hinted that he would be contesting in the next New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primaries which would be to elect the party’s flagbearer for the 2028 presidential elections.
Speaking at the ‘Showdown’ Thanksgiving Service and Party, he held on Saturday, November 11, 2023, to show gratitude to his supporters and his campaign team, Ken Agyapong urged his followers not to be dismayed about the outcome of the November 4 primaries which he lost to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
He told his supporters and members of his campaign to take solace in their tremendous performance, before vowing to come back stronger next 4 years.
“I want to extend my gratitude to the campaign team and all the supporters. I know we fought a good fight in every contest; there would be a winner and a loser. But this contest was between a man and the whole system. They underestimated me and my team. They predicted I would not get more than 10 percent. But today, all those who made the claim are indoors and feel ashamed.
“…let’s keep hope alive, let’s keep hope alive that in the next 3, 4 years, we would give them another showdown. God bless,” he said.
