John Boadu said the NPP will not rule Ghana for eight years but will govern for 40 years.
He said he will ensure that the party stays in office for over forty years.
Addressing journalists, he said the party will not rule Ghana for eight years but will govern for so many years.
"We are not looking at eight years, we are not looking at 16 years, we are looking beyond 40 years, we want the NPP to stay in power for 40 years in order to implement good policies for Ghanaians," he added.
The party opened nominations last week ahead of its National Delegates Conference scheduled for July 7, 2018.
The postponement was due to the clash with Ramadan, which is likely to be celebrated that day.
The acting National Chairman, Freddie Blay and acting General Secretary, John Boadu are among those seeking election as substantive leaders of the party.
