NPP Flagbearer Race: Dr Afriyie Akoto picks nomination form, promises to revamp economy through agriculture

Accra, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, a flagbearer hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has promised to leverage on the potential of the agriculture sector to turn the economic fortunes of the country around when elected flagbearer and ultimately, the President of Ghana in 2024.

According to him, the agriculture sector was the only one capable of generating the required foreign exchange needed by the country to undertake its development and ensure economic independence.

Addressing journalists at his campaign office, in Accra, on Monday, after picking nomination form to contest the flagbearer position of the NPP, Dr Akoto promised to prioritise funding of the sector when elected as President.

Dr Prince Sodoke Amuzu, a Spokesperson for Dr Akoto, picked the form at the Party’s headquarters at Asylum Down early Monday, accompanied by hundreds of constituency and party faithful as well as sympathisers of the flagbearer hopeful.

Dr Akoto becomes the fifth person to pick nomination form to contest the flagbearer position of the Party after Mr Boakye Agyarko, a former Energy Minister, Mr Kwabena Agyei Agyapong, a former General Secretary of the NPP, Mr Francis Addai-Nimo, a former Member of Parliament for Mampong and Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku, an Economist cum corporate executive did so on Friday.
