Member of Parliament for Assin Central and New Patriotic Party (NPP), flagbearer hopeful Kennedy Agyapong, has posited that his consistent drawing of the number one spot on ballots is a divine signal that he would lead both the NPP and the nation.
Speaking to the media after balloting on September 13, 2023, he expressed the belief that being drawn number one on the ballot for the second successive time was a clear indication from God that he should be entrusted with the mantle of leadership.
He noted that this divine message is apparent to anyone who subscribes to biblical wisdom.
“It is clear that I am the person God has chosen to lead the NPP. If you believe in the Bible… because everywhere I go, Kennedy Agyapong is number one. It is a clear indication that should be given a chance to lead this country.”
He highlighted that he drew the number one spot in the super delegates’ election and has once again drawn number one in the upcoming party congress.
These occurrences, he believes, offer undeniable proof of his presidential destiny.
“The signs are clearly on the wall that if you vote for Kennedy Agyapong, he will definitely lead this country and break the eight.”
The reference to “break the eight” alludes to his desire to end the two-term limit in power that parties under the Fourth Republic have stayed in power and secure a third consecutive term for the party.
The Presidential Elections Committee held an interactive session with the four contestants vying for the NPP presidential primaries scheduled for Saturday, November 4, 2023

Here is the order in which the contestants will appear on the ballot:
1. Ken Ohene Agyapong
