Spare parts dealers in Abossey Okai in the Greater Accra Region have called on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to present business mogul, Kennedy Agyapong as their flagbearer in the 2024 elections if they seek to convince the disappointed traders to vote for the party once more.
The traders explained that they believe the astute businessman is the only person who can champion the interests of the business community when the party is retained in power.
“We all work at Abossey Okai which is the heart of the party you belong to, the NPP…we had decided not to vote in the 2024 elections but the announcement that you will be contesting the flagbearership position of your party have caused us to collectively change our minds and vote once you contest in the elections…,” a member of the leadership of the traders in the business hub told a gathering at the Akroma Hotel in Takoradi where the Western Regional edition of the Guidance Conference was held.
The man who had to postpone a trip to Chicago (USA) and other traders who are passionate about the Ken Agyapong for President 2024 campaign added that ‘we became convinced after years of listening and watching you espouse your business philosophies and vision for Ghana.’
“We have collectively decided to support you to make Ghana great. We believe in your vision of making use of businessmen to make Ghana great as it’s done in other countries. Lawyers, Professors have all ruled and failed Ghana but we believe it is time to give businessmen the opportunity to rule Ghana and we believe you are the right person for that…,” he said.

Kennedy Agyapong who confirmed his decision to contest the flagbearer slot of the NPP earlier this year has promised to champion the cause of businessmen as he believes they can play a major role in developing the country.
He has also expressed his desire to instil discipline in the public sector including sacking appointees who report to work late as a means setting the standard for discipline in all facets of the public sector.
