The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong hinted that he plans to contest in the next New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primaries, scheduled to elect the party’s flagbearer for the 2028 presidential elections.
Speaking at the ‘Showdown’ Thanksgiving Service and Party on November 11, 2023, to express gratitude to his supporters and campaign team, Agyapong encouraged his followers not to be disheartened by the outcome of the November 4 primaries, where he lost to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
He urged them to take pride in their remarkable performance and vowed to return even stronger in the next four years.
“I want to extend my gratitude to the campaign team and all the supporters. I know we fought a good fight in every contest; there would be a winner and a loser. But this contest was between a man and the whole system. They underestimated me and my team. They predicted I would not get more than 10 percent. But today, all those who made the claim are indoors and feel ashamed.
“…let’s keep hope alive, let’s keep hope alive that in the next 3, 4 years, we would give them another showdown. God bless,” he said.
