Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku, the former NEPAD Minister, faced a setback in his bid to file his nomination forms for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential Primaries.

On Monday, June 19, when he arrived at the party’s headquarters, he was turned away.

Initially expected to be the first aspirant to submit his forms, Dr. Apraku was informed by the party’s Elections Committee that his forms were incomplete. Consequently, he was asked to return on another day before the deadline, which falls on Saturday, June 24.

Dr. Apraku has expressed his aspiration to lead the NPP, positioning himself as a potential successor to leaders such as John Agyekum Kufuor and President Akufo-Addo.

In an interview on TV3‘s The Keypoints, the former Offinso North Member of Parliament said: “I feel there is time for everything and I sincerely believe this is the time.”

Last week, former Trade Minister Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia submitted the forms they picked at GH¢50,000 each.

Today, former Agric Minister, Dr Owusu Akoto Afriyie has submitted his forms.
