President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has informed the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the general public that he will only vote for the flagbearer candidate who he believes is competent enough to ‘break the 8.’
Furthermore, he stated that in addition to voting for a candidate who would hand Mahama his third straight loss, he would also support a candidate who might bring the party together.
He made this statement when he met with some communicators of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the Jubilee House on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, which was monitored by 1Family Radio.
“I have just one vote, the same as any polling station executive anywhere in the country, and I will cast that vote for an aspirant who, I believe, can best unite the party and, above all, who can win the presidential election of December 7, 2024, and inflict a third successive defeat on the perennial NDC Presidential Candidate, John Dramani Mahama,’’ Akufo-Addo stated.
On Saturday, August 26, the NPP will have its special delegates meeting in order to narrow down the total number of flagbearer candidates from 10 to 5.
