NPP Flagbearership Race: Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, a candidate vying to become the flagbearer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), expressed his confidence and dismissed any intimidation from the perceived frontrunners in the upcoming primaries.
Agyepong believes that despite their apparent advantage, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and former Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen are only leading by default.
During his campaign launch on June 11th, Agyepong stated that underdogs often emerge victorious, emphasizing that being seen as a non-front-runner does not deter him.
He explained that Bawumia, as the Vice President, naturally aspires to be number one, while Kyerematen has consistently been the runner-up in the past three elections.
Agyepong, a Civil Engineer, asserted that it is crucial for Ghanaians to be aware of the policy positions of the aspirants and make their decision based on that.
He believes that his proposed initiatives are strong enough to secure his victory and has challenged the other candidates to engage in a debate to present their respective stands on major issues and defend their records in government.
Expressing his confidence, Agyepong emphasized that simply holding a leading position does not automatically make someone a frontrunner.
He believes it is the responsibility of the media to question the candidates about their stance and plans.
Agyepong outlined his six plans for a new dawn, highlighting that these policies will guide his actions if elected.
