Three of the other individuals who have expressed interest in running in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primary have picked their forms.
Boakye Agyarko, Kwabena Agyapong, and Addai-Nimoh are the three who pick up forms to contest.
A team led by one of his aides, Benjamin Armah, also picked up the forms for former Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko.
Speaking to the media, the aide of Boakye Agyarko said “We are very confident that this is a man God has prepared among all the men in NPP to succeed our current President Akufo-Addo. We believe that with his capabilities and as we tout him, the engine of public policy in NPP, he will be able to bring hope to the ordinary Ghanaian. He has gone around all the 16 regions, and we are touching base that is why you don’t see us making a whole lot of noise. By the grace of the Almighty God, he will be part of the best 5. We have all the men to lead NPP but among them, Boagye Agyarko is the best”.
Kwabena Adjei Agyapong, a former NPP General Secretary, is the third person to choose his nomination forms.
Francis Addai-Nimoh, a former Mampong MP, also picked up his forms.
His spokesperson, George Obeng Antwi told the media that “We just went for the forms for Addai-Nimoh. We are friends of Addai-Nimoh, and we believe that he’s the best person to lead us into the next general elections. What we are saying is that, if NPP can win the next general elections, it has to be someone who is not part of this administration.
“We are looking for someone who is noble, a person with great nobility, a person with an unblemished character who is respected across the country, who is blameless, with great wisdom and understanding, to lead the party. People tend to have faith and trust in Addai-Nimoh. They see him to be credible, we deal with people all over the country and that is what we get.”
