The New Patriotic Party has officially closed nominations for its presidential primaries. Ten out of the 11 flagbearer hopefuls who picked nomination forms successfully filed.
The Member of Parliament for Essikado-Ketan, Joe Ghartey, was the last to submit his presidential nomination forms on Saturday, June 24.
The seasoned lawmaker said he was poised to make a significant impact on the political landscape.
Accompanied by a large group of enthusiastic supporters, Joe Ghartey arrived at the NPP headquarters at Asylum Down to complete the necessary formalities.
Mr Ghartey, a seasoned legal practitioner and former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, had previously emphasized the importance of unity and inclusivity in his campaign.
He pledged to focus on fostering economic growth, eradicating corruption, and improving the living standards of all Ghanaians.
Having introduced the ‘Justice For All’ programme during former President John Agyekum Kufuor’s administration, Mr. Ghartey envisioned an NPP that promotes equal opportunities for all Ghanaians.
As a former Minister of Railways Development and Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Mr. Ghartey aims to revitalize the NPP and provide young people and party executives with opportunities to serve Ghana, should he win the primaries and subsequently be elected President in 2024.
