Dzogbenuku to contest flagbearership of PPP

2020 Presidential Candidate for the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Brigitte Dzogbenuku has declared intentions to lead her party into the 2024 general elections.

She made the declaration while speaking on Akoma FM‘s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma Tuesday, August 2.

Madam Dzogbenuku told host of the show Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin that she still has “intentions to contest during the congress for my people to vote for me to bear the flag for PPP in 2024”.

Prior to the 2020 general elections, the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) outdoored its flagbearer, Bridget Dzogbenuku.

She led the party into the December polls and gave the two major parties – the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) – keen contest.

Madam Dzogbenuku is seeking reelection from party delegates in their upcoming congress.

She’s of the view if Ghana is not salvaged from the grips of the two major parties, the future will be unbearable, hence her call on Ghanaians to forgo NPP and NDC for PPP to secure Ghana’s future for sustainable development.
