Flagbearer of the Independent People’s Party (IPP) Kofi Akpaloo, has declared his full support for the Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the December 2016 elections. The IPP Flagbearer who was among the 13 presidential aspirants disqualified by the Electoral Commission, has joined NPP’s boat.
Speaking to the media, Mr. Akpaloo said the NPP’s agenda for employment and education are in line with the dream and policies of the IPP. He explained that the IPP as a party, has great plans for Ghana, which it will never conceal on the grounds of disqualification from the presidential race.
Kofi Akpaloo also revealed that he approached other parties after being disqualified, but it was only the NPP that gave him a listening ear. For that reason, he as well as the IPP, have pledged their unflinching support for the NPP and its Flagbearer. The IPP Flagbearer said that the executives of the party are ready to work with the NPP, to do the necessary campaign to capture power come December.
Mr. Akpaloo however noted that, the IPP won’t be part of the NPP but will campaign for them. Promising to come back stronger, he pointed put that once the NPP wins, he will concentrate on his party.
Mr. Akpaloo has become the second Flagbearer of a political party, to endorse Nana Addo. His endorsement of the NPP leader, follows that of the United Progressive Party (UPP) candidate, Kwasi Odike, who was also disqualified from the presidential race.
The massive support the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been earning from various groups, parties and individuals in recent times is beginning cast doubts in the minds of some staunch supporters of the ruling party as regards their ability to win the election. Spokesperson for the NDC campaign, Madam Joyce Bawa Motgari, recently said that she sometimes, get worried that the NDC might lose in the election.
Whatever happen, everyone has got no other option than to wait till December 7 for Ghana’s fate to be decided.
