Ace broadcaster Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has provisionally won the Ofoase-Ayirebi primary to contest on the ticket of the NPP in the 2016 elections.

The ace journalist polled an overwhelming 218 votes to beat his closest contender John Obiri Yeboah who polled 114. The aspiring candidate Bright Asamoah Acquah polled a paltry 58.

He had early on promised to institute an education trust fund in the constituency to help needy but brilliant students if he gets the nod.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah before he contested the seat earlier said his belief in the NPP liberal democratic ideology pushed him to the party. He said the current situation demands a party with forward-looking ideals and principles to take Ghana out of its challenges.

His reasons Oppong Nkrumah stated that at heart, he shares the party’s philosophy for solving problems. He said he totally disagrees with persons who argue that philosophy does not matter but just pragmatism.

“The philosophy informs the approach and so if I look across the political options, the NPP’s philosophy and its approach to solving problems that bedevil us is one that appeals to me and so at heart, I agree with that.”

His second reason was that taking a critical look at the track record of parties in government and in opposition, “I think I’m more comfortable with the NPP’s disposition towards politics.”

He remarked that the “NPP does its politics in particular way, deals with the substance of issues, deals with working to improve the quality of lives of the people and I am very comfortable in this place.”
