Former Member of Parliament (MP) for Asante Mampong in the Ashanti Region, Francis Addai-Nimoh, has declared himself as the only person who can help the New Patriotic Party (NPP) break the eight-year political cycle in 2024.
According to the ex-legislator, he has all the qualities to lead the NPP into the 2024 elections which promises to be a dicey one.
The man who described himself as a ‘unifier’ at the launch of his presidential bid at the Osu Presbyterian Hall said he is prepared to go to every extent to ensure that the party is retained by Ghanaians in 2024.
“I formally serve notice here today that I am ready, able and willing to lead the party as flag bearer and to humbly serve our beloved country as President,” he said.
Clad in a white shirt and blue trousers to depict the colours of the NPP, Mr Addai –Nimoh mounted the stage to a roaring and thunderous shout from the hundreds of sympathisers.
With his supporters chanting his name and beams cameras fixed on him, the former legislator told the NPP and the entire nation that the NPP is the only party which can transform Ghana for the better.
He was however quick to add that the NPP can deliver this to the satisfaction of Ghanaians only if they have the right man to bear the flag going into the 2024 elections; and this is when Addai-Nimoh’s come in handy.
The gentle-spoken Engineer went ahead to lay his vision for the party bare.
Mr Addai-Nimoh said he would promote unity and also apply the values of “justice, mercy and honesty’’ to support the rank and file of the party.
Again, he said he would commit resources to the construction of permanent party offices in constituencies that had no offices, as well as invest in viable economic ventures in all the constituencies to generate income for the party.
“I will ensure that resources are fairly and equitably distributed among the rank and file of the party, thereby encouraging wide participation and contribution of members to the renewal of the party,” he said
Vision for Ghana
On his plans for the country when he becomes a President, Mr Addai-Nimoh said he had a comprehensive socio-economic transformation plan that would make the country food sufficient and net exporter of agricultural produce, engage in massive infrastructure and build a world-class health and education system.
Also, he said he had a blueprint to turn the country into an industrialised nation with adequate support for businesses and entrepreneurship to generate massive employments.
Born March 23, 1965, Mr Addai-Nimoh represented the Mampong Constituency in the Ashanti Region from January 7, 2009 to January 6, 2017.
He is a native of Mampong-Nyinampong in the Ashanti Region.
After losing the NPP flag bearer bid in 2014, he attempted a re-election in the parliamentary primary of the NPP in 2015 and lost.
Mr Addai-Nimoh is an engineer, businessman, politician, statesman and Christian leader.
