The four competitors who are still in the running for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) primary elections have agreed to accept the results in good faith of the polls, which are scheduled for Saturday, November 4, 2023.
The four candidates and the National Council of Elders met and came to this arrangement.
The party’s general secretary, Justin Frimpong Kodua, informed the media that all of the candidates had consented to accept the results of the polls.
He said this during a press conference that 1Family Radio monitored after the meeting with the candidates. He asserted that this is an effort to prioritize the party’s interests.
“We were able to get all four aspirants to sign an undertaking, and in summary, they are to accept the primary results and promote peace and cohesion,’’ he noted.
“If they don’t win, they will not resign from the party and will support the winner of the primary.’’
In his words, the contenders have agreed to “ensure and enforce mechanisms that have been established by the party and also work within timelines and durations that have been established by the party from now until the results are declared, and to respect the decision of the delegates of the party.”
The four candidates are Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto,former Minister of Food and Agriculture, Francis Addai-Nimoh, the former Mampong MP, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and Assin Central legislator Kennedy Agyapong.
