He said though he expects a tough battle with the National Democratic Congress (NDC), he expects the governing party to pull through.

Speaking on the Citi Breakfast Show on Tuesday, April 4, the former National Organiser of the NPP said he anticipates a battle for several parliamentary seats in the 2024 elections.

He, however, added that the NPP will beat the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) through various strategies that will be deployed by the NPP.

I think that the NPP must focus on regaining our lost seats because there will be a battle for Parliament. But I think we [NPP] will beat the NDC through strategy.


Awuku also hinted at the possibility of contesting for the Akropong parliamentary seat on the ticket of the NPP.

According to him, several Chiefs and Opinion Leaders in the area are convincing him to contest for the Akropong seat.
