Former Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko has officially declared his intention to lead the NPP into the 2024 elections.
The former Energy Minister says he’s “fit for purpose”, hence has resolved to put himself up to be elected by the party delegates.
“In 2008, I was a contestant, one of the 17. I stayed to pay my dues. I consider myself fit for purpose and so I will not resale from that ambition or that objective. But at the end of the day it is for the grassroots to decide,” he added.
Listen to him in the audio below:
Mr. Agyarko has, since the commencement of the party’s annual regional delegate’s conference been involved in the process.
