Maverick politician and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has endorsed Stephen Ayesu Ntim as the next National Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to him, Mr Ntim who’s a serial National Chairman contender and a former National First Vice Chairman does not need to be present at the election grounds to win the election which is slated to be held from July 14 to 16, 2022.

“Stephin Ntim will win. Even if he does not go to the election grounds he will win hands down. So the rest are all wasting their time. Asamoah Boateng is my good friend but if you advise him he may not listen. This election is a protest vote so nobody can intimidate anybody. Ntim will win massively,” he said in an interview on Net 2 Television.
