“The Vice-President has demonstrated this during his time as a Vice, so it clearly shows that he has the qualities, experience and the leadership skills to lead the Party to break the eight,” he noted.
Prof. Nyarko observe that the Vice President had stood the test of time and he knew and understood the national economic situation.
He added that, although all the aspirants were good presidential materials, and has proven records in the country’s political space, it would be in the supreme interest of the party, if delegates endorsed the Vice President to lead the NPP into elections 2024.
