The flagbearer of the Independent People’s Party, Kofi Akpaloo has declared support for New Patriotic Party’s presidential candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the December polls.

Mr. Akpaloo was among some presidential hopefuls who were disqualified by the electoral commission due to some errors on their nomination forms.

Speaking to the media in Accra Thursday, Mr. Akpaloo said Akufo-Addo has realistic policies as compared to the other candidates hence his decision to declare support for him.

“As a party, we believe that when it comes to job creation, we have fantastic ideas and also putting monies into people’s pocket, we believe we have an idea.

“So we decided to speak to the parties and one of the parties that we spoke to gave us the opportunity to help them implementing these ideas with them…that doesn’t mean that we are going to be part of that party, we are only helping the party win power in 2016…and that party that we have agreed to work with…is the New Patriotic Party.

Mr. Akpaloo is the second person to declare his support for Akufo-Addo after UPP’s Akwasi Addai Odike.

The NPP flagbearer is currently in the Eastern region campaigning ahead of the December 7 polls.
