As part of Kennedy Agyapong’s strategy to become the Flagbearer of the governing New Patriotic Party, he and his team have provided free bus to transport passengers from Kwame Nkumah Circle to Accra.
In a video circulating on social media, the bus, which has been branded with messages and images of Kennedy Agyapong, was spotted parked at Circle.
A group of supporters, donning Kennedy Agyapong’s T-shirts, could be seen beckoning passengers to hop on board for a complimentary journey and to endorse the MP.
The video captures the supporters calling out, “This is Honourable Kennedy Agyapong’s handiwork, Accra free, come and pick the car and vote for him, showdown man.”
Some passengers seemed enthusiastic about the offer as they could be seen boarding the bus.
According to a campaign team member, who spoke to Oman FM on Friday, she made it clear that this free transportation services will not only be in Accra. According to her, the next target is the Eastern region. From there, the team will move to the Ashanti region, then other regions.
The Member of Parliament for Assin Central and New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful, will contest for the flagbearership slot along with three other contenders including Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, Dr Afriyie Akoto and Addai-Nimoh.
The NPP has slated November 4, 2023, to elect a successor to president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as leader of the party.
Currently, although the New Patriotic Party (NPP) went into the Special Delegates Conference with a hope of deciding the final 5 people to go into the November 4 congress, it has been left with only 4 candidates.
The four: Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice President of Ghana; Kennedy Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central; Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, former Minister of Food and Agriculture; and Francis Addai-Nimoh, former MP for Ashanti Mampong; barring any more surprises, will be on the ballots for the elections of November that will decide who becomes the flagbearer of the ruling party.
That candidate will lead the NPP into the 2024 general elections as its presidential candidate.
