Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku, one of the New Patriotic Party flagbearer hopefuls has been instructed to complete his forms and re-submit same to the elections committee of the party.
This happened when he visited the party headquarters on Monday, June 19, 2023, to submit his forms.
However, scrutiny by the elections committee revealed that the forms have not been filled completely.
The party has not made known yet to the media the additions and corrections to be made to the forms, but Citi News sources at the headquarters say the committee is ready to receive him once he returns with the completed forms.
However, members of the team have revealed that certain documents such as his CV, and personal contributions to the party were not included in the nomination document submitted.
Meanwhile, another flagbearer hopeful of the New Patriotic Party, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, has said that he is unfazed by the large crowds that have characterized the filing of nomination forms by other aspirants.
Speaking to the press after filing his forms at the party headquarters on June 19, Dr Akoto said that he chose to submit his forms only with core members of his campaign team, rather than busing in supporters.
Dr. Akoto expressed appreciation for the support of his delegates and constituency chairmen, who voluntarily came to the party headquarters to support him.
He called on his supporters to stay true to the cause of getting him elected as flagbearer of the NPP.
“Let me say here that everybody who has come here including representatives of farmers, are here on their own accord. You cannot see any bused crowd or any big commercial vehicle bringing people to come and support.
“People have come on their own volition and own conviction that my candidature will be good for the people of Ghana and the NPP, and I am very grateful.”
The filing of nomination forms for the NPP flagbearership election is ongoing. The deadline for filing is June 24.
