Boakye Agyarko, Addai-Nimoh refusing to step down – Stephen Ntim reveals

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) will have a meeting on Wednesday in an effort to break the tie that exists between presidential hopefuls Boakye Agyarko and Francis Addai-Nimoh.

The goal of the meeting is to increase the number of candidates for the November 4 presidential primary from three to five.

Due to the fact that both candidates received nine votes in the first round of voting, the party was compelled to hold a run-off election on Saturday, September 2nd.

However, in the interest of avoiding a runoff election, the party has requested that the two candidates step down in favour of one another.

To date, neither of the two candidates has indicated any willingness to step down.
