President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has admitted that things are difficult in the country and he is hoping that Ghanaians will put their trust in the New Patriotic Party to ameliorate the challenges currently confronting the state.
Speaking to TV3’s Roland Walker at the party’s headquarters where the voting is ongoing, President Akufo-Addo said he has personally spoken about the hard times on several occasions and he is urging Ghanaians to trust the NPP to do the magic by getting the country out of the turmoil.
“Things are difficult. I’m the first to admit it. I’ve said it several times. I’m the first to admit and at the end of the day when the moment comes, Ghanaians will reflect on the best to get us out of these difficulties and get us to the next stage and that is the New Patriotic Party,” he told Roland Walker Saturday, August 26, 2023 at the NPP headquarters in Accra.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo said people have been calling on him to endorse their candidates but he has not endorsed anyone.
”There are some who are calling on me to endorse their candidate but I haven’t endorsed anyone,” he stressed.
The NPP are having a special delegates conference today to prune 10 aspirants vying for the flagbearer of the party heading to the 2024 elections. The exercise is meant to reduce the number from 10 to five before a general conference to settle on a flagbearer November 4 this year.
Three key persons standing tall to make the top five include Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, and former Trade and Industry minister, Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen.
