The four constituencies comprised of Asuogyaman, Yilo Krobo, Upper Manya, and Lower Manya which constituted the Krobo Block in the Eastern Region have fully endorsed the Former Minister of Energy and founder father of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Boakye Agyarko as the next flagbearer.

According to the delegates, Mr. Boakye is their own, and have helped the party a lot, hence the need to rally behind him to lead the party since he has the charisma to attract floating voters’ votes and restore hope and confidence in the party members, as well as changing the dynamic of the economy for all to have a better living conditions.

This was known when Mr. Boakye Agyarko engaged them to announce his intention to contest for the flagbearership race of the ruling party at Odumase – Krobo where he hailed from.

The Former Minister for Energy over the weekend kicked off his nationwide campaign tour, from his home region where he met with the Regional Executives.

After engaging the Executives in Koforidua, he moves to the Krobo block where his mother comes from which is an act of paying homage to his matrilineal home and seeking their blessing.

He visited the Constituencies Executives and Electoral Area Coordinators of the Asuogyaman, Lower Manya Krobo, Upper Manya Krobo, and Yilo Krobo constituencies respectively.

The next stop of the campaign tour will be at his father’s home to also seek their blessings.

His father Kwasi Agyarko’s home is Agona Jamase in the Sekyere zone of the Ashanti Region which includes Ejisu, Juaben, Effiduase-Asokore, Mampong, Sekyere Afram Plains, Kumawu, Ejura Sekyere-Dumase, Nsuta Kwamang Beposo, and Afigya Sekyere East.

He said, “this forms part of his vision which touches on the need for the party and its members to revisit the old tradition and principles to bring back the hope on which the party was founded, which will be a cardinal factor for victory for the New Patriotic Party in the 2024 general elections”.

Addressing the delegates, he has called on the leadership of the party to restore faith and hope in the party since without restoration of hope and faith in Ghanaians, they cannot break the 8 years election cycle.

Mr. Boakye Agyarko speaking on the theme: “Restoring Hope” urged the party members to have confidence in him and vote for him to lead the party to victory in 2024.

According to him, things have not gone well as it is expected by some party members and Ghanaians at large, therefore this is the time the party must show respect to the discerning views of some party members and Ghanaians to restore hope and faith among them.

Mr. Boakye Agyarko, also a former Campaign Manager of President Akufo-Addo further argued that some party members want to end the eight due to their loss of hope in the party.

Additionally, he blamed certain NPP MPs for not showing any concern about the happenings and the performance of the party because they are more interested in what they are getting for themselves as Members of Parliament.

The Flag-bearer hopeful further contends that the NPP should admit that things have not gone well and stop apportioning blame on the Russia-Ukraine war, adding that “it is frightening that the country would have experienced worse economic turbulence had it not been for the intervention of the IMF”.
