NPP Presidential Aspirants Unite, Pledge Support Ahead of Primaries

by Victor Adetimilehin

Ahead of the National Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primaries scheduled for November 4, 2023, four prominent party figures have come together to foster unity and acceptance of the election results.

Signatories to the undertaking include Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, the Member of Parliament for Assin North; Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia; former Minister of Food and Agriculture, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto; and former MP for Mampong in the Ashanti Region, Francis Addai-Nimoh.

During the meeting in Accra, they committed to accepting the results of the presidential primary and pledged their support to the winner for the 2024 elections. Importantly, they also vowed not to resign in the event of defeat, emphasizing the importance of promoting peace and party cohesion.

The gathering was attended by prominent party members, including President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, former President John Agyekum Kufuor, members of the National Council of Elders, national executive members, and members of the Presidential Elections Committee (PEC).

Justine Kodua Frimpong, the General Secretary of the NPP, announced that the chairmen of the constituency council of elders and constituency council of patrons would oversee the constituency elections, ensuring a fair and transparent process.

Suspended party members who have not had their cases resolved by the disciplinary committee will be allowed to vote, with the exception of those for whom sanctions have been recommended and upheld.

On the day of voting, there will be no congregations of supporters, no wearing of candidates’ campaign materials, and no group entry into the voting screen. Additionally, no one will be allowed to direct delegates on how to vote, and taking pictures of the vote will not be permitted.

All party members, regardless of whether they have fully paid their dues, will be allowed to cast their ballots. The total number of delegates is 204,144, with 563 proxy votes.

The NPP’s commitment to a transparent and peaceful primary process is seen as a positive step toward unity and collaboration within the party, setting the stage for the upcoming presidential election in 2024.
