A vigil was staged at Kennedy Agyapong’s village of Assin Dompim in the Central Region by hundreds of supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate, Kennedy Agyapong. The polls are scheduled for Saturday, November 4.
A candlelight parade was organized on November 3 in the evening, according to the Ghana News Agency, “as part of a two-day fasting and prayers declared by his people to seek the face of God for the aspiring candidate.”
Participants could be seen at various phases of the gathering in the photos published by GNA. at one, they were sitting, in another, they were carrying lit candles, and in a third, they were standing around the candles.
In a few months, Agyapong advanced to become a prominent contender among the ten contenders who were ultimately reduced to five for the August 26 election.
In that preliminary vote, vice president Mahumudu Bawumia won, and he came in second. There were less than 1,000 voters in the procedure.
But Kennedy hopes to surpass Bawumia in a broader poll that will see more than 2088,000 delegates cast ballots nationwide.
Kennedy is one of three candidates vying for the flagbearership position: Dr. Bawumia, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, and Francis-Addai-Nimoh.
November 4, 2023 is the date set by the NPP to elect President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s replacement as the party’s leader.
