Aspiring flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong says he values his party’s interest more than his personal interest.

The Assin Central MP said he will support Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, to win the presidential seat in 2024 in case he (Kennedy Agyapong) loses the internal elections.

Addressing some party members in the Ashanti region, Mr. Agyapong advised that the party should not indulge in tribalism which he believes can cause division in the party.

“If you want to play tribal, I’ll also play tribal and what will happen? We will go into opposition but there is no need to go into opposition. We don’t want to go into opposition. If we go into this election and Dr Bawumia wins, I’m going to support him,” he assured.

He stressed that the party should disregard anything that could led to factionsalism in the party but work together to make the "breaking the eight" agenda a reality.

The aspiring flagbearer emphasised that the NPP lost most of its seats in the 2020 elections due to minor cracks within the party, the reason they need to be united ahead of the 2024 elections.

“If NPP will break the 8, we need unity in the party. It is very very important but it looks as if we don’t learn. We don’t learn in the sense that we have 160 Parliamentarians but because if you internal struggles we lost most of the seats,” he advised.

Mr. Kennedy Agyapong assured, “If I win the flagbearership, I’ll need your help before I can sail through and therefore I don’t need to antagonize you.”
