He said he will win the primaries of the party which is scheduled for later this month with an overwhelming majority.

In an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, the former police officer said he is targeting a 60 percent win.

“I am going to bring unity to the party because we have to break the 8, and it is only unity that will help us break the 8, and that is what I am going to do. I am going to do everything that I have to do to bring improvement to the community.”

“With the percent that I am going to get, it should be more than 60 percent,” he added.


Following the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Owusu-Osei’s decision not to seek re-election in the upcoming NPP primaries, it has opened the floodgates for four persons to contest in the race.

The other contenders in the race, Raph Poku-Adusei, Kingsley Opoku Agyemang, and Henry Opoku-Ware, are also optimistic about winning the primaries.
