Ken Ohene Agyapong, a leading NPP flagbearer hopeful, has declared that he does not recognize any so-called camps within the New Patriotic Party, and that the only way for the party to break the eight is to unite into one camp – the NPP Camp.
The Assin Central MP made this declaration during an interaction with scores of Ghanaians who besieged him after his powerful speech at the Church of Pentecost USA Inc in New York City.
“If the Church of Pentecost can bring the clergy and traditional leader together, why can’t all NPP members who share the same political ideology come together,” Hon. Agyapong asked. “It is time to unify the New Patriotic Party,” he added.
Indeed, the outspoken MP from Assin has built a long and consistent reputation of championing the party’s cause without highlighting any camps, a neutrality that many argue makes him the best candidate to lead a united NPP in December 2024 against the NDC.
Any attentive observer would agree that the NPP has descended into what many believe to be the Kufuor/Alan Camp and the Nana Addo and Co Camp.
And so contentious has the divide become in some small circles that a small minority in both camps would not support a candidate from the other camp.
If that is the case, “then it makes sense to select a candidate who does not belong to any of the two camps, but whose support base transcends them,” observed Kwame Amofa, an accountant in New York City.
In addition, Beatrice Nsiah asked “even NDC people are saying No-ken-no-vote, and we want to bring a candidate who cannot even obtain support from a section of his own party?”
