Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a potential flagbearer for the New Patriotic Party, has made patriotism, honesty, and discipline (PHD) the cornerstone of his campaign.
Kennedy Agyapong, a well-known anti-corruption campaigner, recently discussed his plans to combat corruption in an interview with UTV’s Mpu Ne Mpu. He based these plans on the “honesty” part of his campaign platform.
He asserts that he would enforce public office holders’ conduct with great rigor and that he will not tolerate any sort of pleading on behalf of those who have been found guilty.
“I have told you severally that in my tenure, if you are caught and punished, I won’t heed to pleadings from anyone, be it a pastor, a chief, a politician or my family member,” he stated.
He emphasized that such action will ensure truthfulness among public officers and will eventually lead to a reduction in corruption.
“That will compel everyone to be honest and truthful in the interest of Ghana,” he stated.
Kennedy Agyapong is among 10 individuals approved for the party’s upcoming flagbearer contest.
The party is scheduled to host a special delegates congress on August 26, 2023, to reduce the number of candidates from 10 to five before proceeding to a general delegates congress on November 4, 2023, to elect their flagbearer for the 2024 elections.
