According to Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku, he stands very tall amongst all the aspirants vying for the party’s presidential race, therefore he believes that the delegates will give him the nod to become the party Flagbearer.

Dr. Apraku further stated that, “I’m confident that my old experience is what is prevailing. I have a lot of experience; I think I’m in a better position than ever before to win this election and lead this country. I stand very tall amongst all the aspirants; my experience is overwhelming. I have practical experience in managing economies, and dealing with current problems. Furthermore, I believe I have a better chance than anybody in this race to win. The taste of the pudding is in the eating”.


Dr. Apraku expressed confidence that his experience places him in a higher position to win the party’s presidential race which will catapult him to leading the country.

Dr Apraku, said since people in the NPP have presidential ambitions, he also has presidential ambitions adding that “everybody wants to be a leader in whatever it is that they do and I do have presidential ambitions, maybe I have not been so forthright as others, partly because of the work that I do”.

Addressing a section of Journalists in Accra, to announce his Presidential ambitions, he said he is the best person to lead the party on the flagbearership ticket in the run-up to the 2024 polls.

The former Minister for Trade and Industry in the John Agyekum Kufuor government was part of the seventeen 17 aspirants who contested the flagbearership of NPP in 2007 but polled 19 votes.

Asked if NPP delegates will this time round vote massively for him, the former Offinso North Member of Parliament underscored, “there is time for everything, you may also recall that the first time I went, I was number three. I did far better than in the last instance. Well times are different now, and I have been around the country, I have been to fourteen 14, out of the sixteen 16 regions in our country”.
