A Flagbearer aspirant in the just ended NPP presidential race, Kennedy Agyapong, has called on party delegates to come together to give the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) a showdown.
He made this passionate appeal shortly after the Electoral Commission (EC) declared his main contender Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as the winner of the presidential polls.
“Indeed, it’s a great day today. I believe the party has been fair and transparent. That is the only thing I have already been preaching. And I must admit, this election is fair and my grassroots have spoken. And therefore, I accept the results in good faith.
“I pledge my support that we are working tirelessly to break the eight. Party members, we are here, we should put everything behind us and let’s unite this party. With unity, I believe we can break the eight.
“I want to assure you, in 2024, the showdown is being translated today. We have to come together and give the NDC a showdown. I want to thank my team for working hard and the party faithfuls who believed in me,”he said.
Certified results from the Electoral Commission (EC) available to The Ghana Report indicate that Dr. Bawumia obtained 118, 210 votes (61.47%), Kennedy Agyapong comes in second with 71,996 votes.
The former Minister for Food and Agriculture, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, comes in third with 1,459 votes followed by Francis Addai-Nimoh with 781 votes.
The total vote cast was 193,346, with 900 rejected votes.
