Speaking during a news conference at his residence in Kumasi, Dr. Akoto urged NPP delegates to vote for him as the flagbearer in the upcoming 2024 general elections. He emphasized the importance of the delegates’ decision on November 4.

“We have suspended our Ashanti regional campaign tour as a sign of respect for the loss of the first lady Theresa Kufuor. We will come back at the appropriate time, and we will be informed. But I want to take this opportunity to convey my deepest respect to the delegates of NPP who have been called upon to make a decision for the party. The real contest is on November 4. I’m calling on the delegates to vote for me,” he said.
