Members of Parliament Kennedy Ohene Agyapong and Joe Ghartey have officially picked forms to join the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer elections.

The two had their forms picked on their behalf by their representatives on Thursday, June 1.

Thanking his team, he said the forms should put paid to reports that he was only paving way for another candidate.

For the Essikado Ketan MP, Joe Ghartey, Ghana will be better under his tenure as President.

The forms were picked at GH¢50,000 each.

Submission is to be done before or on Saturday, June 24, when nominations close.
