Kofi Akpaloo who was the first to pick the form said the IPP was the only alternative for governance now.

“We want people to know how serious we are, we will be the first party to submit our form. Everybody is going to vote for us. We are winning the elections and nothing is holding us back…. coming out with an idea has been a problem but money has never been a problem, so if you have good ideas, money will chase that idea.”
