'I am Ghana's hope'-Dr Akoto confident of winning flagbearer contest 60

One of the flagbearer hopefuls of the governing New Patriotic Party, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto has expressed confidence in securing victory in the party’s presidential primary scheduled for November 4, 2023.

Dr Akoto who believes he is the beacon of hope for Ghana moving forward said he has already planned out his vision for the country.

Speaking to journalists at his campaign headquarters on Wednesday, September 13, 2023, after securing the third position on the primary ballot, Dr. Akoto highlighted his vision for diversifying Ghana’s agricultural sector through comprehensive policies and programs. He emphasized that this approach is pivotal in revitalizing the country’s economy and alleviating the enduring hardships faced by Ghanaians.

“I am more motivated than ever to carry the NPP’s flag and ultimately secure power for the party. Among all the candidates vying for the NPP flagbearer role, who presents a vision more compelling than mine? My aspirations for the NPP and for Ghana instill hope, and that’s why hundreds of thousands of Ghanaians are urging me to press on and fight until I bring power to them. I can’t let them down,” he stated.

“I am Ghana’s hope. I have already outlined the broader strokes of my vision. As the campaign advances, numerous Ghanaians have assured me of their support, and I’m not retreating.” He added

Dr. Akoto, a former two-term Member of Parliament, placed fourth in the NPP Special Delegates Conference on Saturday, August 26, 2023.

In the run-up to the NPP’s November 4 primary, Dr. Akoto is poised to intensify his campaign efforts while recalibrating his strategies. Over 200,000 party delegates are anticipated to exercise their vote in this highly anticipated electoral event.

Meanwhile, Mr Kennedy Agyapong, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Mr Addae Nimo secured first, second and fourth positions on the ballot respectively.
