OFFICIAL AND PUBLIC DECLARATION OF INTENTION TO RUN IN THE 2023 NPP PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARIES
Following the release of the approved timelines for holding presidential primaries of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the 2024 general elections, I hereby officially and publicly declare my intention to run in the 2023 NPP Presidential Primaries.
In doing so, I pledge to abide by the Rules and Regulations governing the conduct of the Presidential Primaries as well as the Constitution of the Party.
I am a member of the New Patriotic Party in the Effutu Constituency in the Central Region and a Senior Lecturer at the University of Education, Winneba (UEW).
The decision to run in the 2023 Presidential Primaries was taken after prayer, reflection, consultation with a number of the grassroots of the Party and careful consideration.
This was not a decision lightly taken. It was a very difficult decision to take considering all the opportunities that time, life and destiny had presented my way.
I am clear in my mind that I am doing this for God and country. I do not intend to make any pretentions about my intended candidacy. This is not a campaign.
This is simply the declaration of intention with a pledge to abide by the processes the party has put in place for the smooth conduct of the 2023 Presidential Primaries which would see our great party making history by
BREAKING THE 8.
