Kennedy Agyapong, the Assin Central member of parliament, has made indications that he intends to run in the next New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primary, which will choose the party’s nominee for president in 2028.
At the ‘Showdown’ Thanksgiving Service and Party, which he hosted on Saturday, November 11, 2023, as a way to thank his campaign team and supporters, Ken Agyapong encouraged his supporters not to be discouraged by his defeat in the November 4 primaries to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
He urged his campaign’s participants and supporters to find comfort in their outstanding achievement before promising to return stronger over the following 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.
In the 2024 polls, the vice president defeated Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Francis Addai-Nimoh, and Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto to secure the NPP’s presidential candidacy. The vice president received 61.47% of the total votes cast.
