The New Patriotic Party has accepted the support declared by the flagbearer of the Independent People's Party, who announced that he and his party are throwing their weight behind the NPP's flagbearer.
In an interview on Class FM, the aide to Nana Akufo-Addo, Mr Yaw Buabeng Asamoah said, "This election is turning out to be not about individual parties but about the nature of the development, the nature of the way forward that we need to develop collectively as a country. Many in the country are looking for change through Nana Akufo-Addo so we expect qualitative changes in the way we run our government, qualitative changes to the outcome we expect from government and, so, I’m happy with people coming out to say they want to support Nana Akufo-Addo in this national collective effort."
The IPP flagbearer, Mr Kofi Akpaloo declared his support for the NPP in a press conference held on Thursday, November 17, stating that the NPP and its flagbearer assured the IPP that some of their policies as stated in their manifesto would be implemented should the NPP win the elections.
Mr Akpaloo added that the stance of the party currently did not mean they were part of the NPP now, but that they were helping the party to win this year's elections and then re-organize themselves for the polls in the next election period.
