I Am Picking My Form For The Presidential Contest- Kwabena Adjei Agyapong

Former General Secretary of the New National Party (NPP), Kwabena Adjei Agyapong, ties his shoes to compete for the position of flag bearer for the party ahead of the 2024 general election.


He says his desire to lead the party and run for president stems from his commitment to humanity, given the political ideals of the National Progressive Party.


“Today, I want to make that clear. As soon as the party allows nominations for the party flag bearer, I will file,” he said on Citi TV's Point of View on Wednesday.

Kwabena Agyapong, who has competed to carry the NPP flag in the past, believes that party members cannot lose sight of his long and dedicated service to the NPP as that makes him fit for the task ahead.


“The party has rules and regulations, we don’t need to jump the gun and when the time comes you will know the warmth of the youth because my message resonates with them. They see in me the hope of our political traditions because I have worked under the leadership of all this party.”


Kwabena Agyapong was suspended in 2015 along with the party's former national president, Paul Afoko, and former national vice president, Sami Crabbe, for misconduct.

But the suspension was lifted six years later, after a marathon meeting of the National Executive Committee.


Lifting the suspension reinstated his membership in the National Elections Committee, the Steering Committee, and the National Assembly in accordance with the party's constitution.

Today, he says, he "feels the pulse of the people of this country and sympathizes with what I've been through."


“I have seen the daily trajectory of the Ghanaian people and I believe there is an opportunity to change this narrative,” Kwabena Agyabong confirmed as well.

Kwabina Ajiabong was found guilty of violating Article 3(d) of the party's constitution, which requires members to support party decisions.


He was also accused of engaging in "unilateral acts and activities without consulting or obtaining permission from the National Elections Commission."


Despite his suspension, Kwabena Agyapong helped advance President Akufo-Addo's political ambition.

Although touched by the decision taken against him, he is willing to offer his rich experience to break the eight to the party.


He intends to do so by creating that enabling environment to mobilize the needed support.


We need harmony to rejuvenate our party base and energize our grassroots, our campaign, and win elections. I think our party has more core members, but we have to reach out to neutrals."
