Odeneho Nana Oppong (aka Candidate 2), a former transport officer at Jubilee House, the seat of Ghana’s presidency, has picked up a nomination form to contest the upcoming New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primaries, scheduled for 4 November 2023.

Representatives of Nana Oppong secured the nomination form from the NPP party office yesterday (Thursday 8 June).



Nana Oppong, a man who reportedly looks and dresses like President Akufo-Addo as well as wears spectacles similar to those of the president, was sacked by President Akufo-Addo following allegations of his involvement in financial malfeasance.

Although information on his involvement in the crimes was scanty two years ago, he is said to have become involved in a matter that was unacceptable to the president.

At the end of the first week of nomination processes in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for its presidential primaries, fixed for Saturday 4 November 2023, ten aspirants have picked up nomination forms to run for the top slot.

The NPP opened nominations on 26 May and the window for filing is expected to close on Saturday 24 June. All aspirants who sought forms paid a non-refundable nomination fee of GHC50,000.

Super delegates

At the close of nominations on Saturday 24 June 2023, if all the ten aspirants who have picked up nomination forms go ahead to file, the NPP will hold a super delegates’ conference to trim the number of aspirants to five as required by the party’s constitution.

The NPP has already planned to hold a conference of super delegates on 26 August (a Saturday) if need be.

Under Article 12 (5) (b) of the NPP’s constitution, “where there are more than five contestants for nomination as the party’s presidential candidate, a Special Electoral College (super delegates) shall cast their votes by secret ballot for the first five contestants to be shortlisted”.

The provision goes on to list those who constitute the Special Electoral College. They are “the National Council, the National Executive Committee, the Regional Executive Committees, National Council of Elders and Members of Parliament”.

The rest are “three representatives of each of the special organs of the party, past national officers, three representatives each from every external branch, founding members during the registration of the party at the Electoral Commission and all New Patriotic Party card-bearing ministers when the party is in government”.
