In a bid to enhance their campaign efforts, Fundraising Committee Members of Assin Central MP and flagbearer aspirant of the governing New Patriotic Party, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, have launched a cutting-edge crowdfunding platform.
This platform is designed to mobilise financial resources from every corner of the nation and across the globe to support Ken Agyapong’s presidential campaign.
The highlight of Ken Agyapong’s fundraising campaign is the introduction of a unique dialing code, *797#, a website (www.ken2024.com), and a USSD option. These platforms enable supporters to not only contribute to Ken’s campaign financially but also engage with and closely follow his campaign activities.
At Ken’s campaign office in Shiashe yesterday, Sammy Crabbe, a former Second National Vice Chairman of the NPP, delivered a presentation on the platform’s functionality and its significance for the campaign.
He explained that the crowdfunding platform serves as a multifaceted tool to raise funds, gauge support, organise supporters, and cultivate broader grassroots backing for Ken’s presidential bid.
Mr Crabbe emphasised the innovative approach taken by Ken Agyapong, stating that it showcases Ken’s ability to bring people together and use existing resources effectively to solve problems. He, therefore, underlined that this approach foreshadows Ken’s commitment to optimizing Ghana’s resources to address the nation’s challenges when he becomes President.
He also stressed the importance of securing victory in the upcoming November 4, 2023 presidential primaries and subsequently prevailing in the 2024 general elections to secure the presidency.
He revealed that the crowdfunding initiative is set to run for a period of 15 months, ensuring that financial resources are available to support Ken Agyapong’s campaign efforts through to the general elections.
“So December 7, 2024, we are going to face John Mahama as well. All these processes require planning, which involves money… We talking cash flows. The platform is a whole partnership we are looking at,” he stated.
In an exciting unveiling moment, Mr. Oppong Bio, the campaign chairman of ‘Ken for President 2024’, introduced the convenient *797# code for potential contributors to pledge their support.
He explained that this newly introduced code empowers individuals in Ghana and the diaspora to easily contribute to Ken Agyapong’s presidential campaign using their mobile phones. This innovative fundraising approach is anticipated to unite supporters from all corners of the nation and foster broader grassroots backing for the campaign.
Mr. Bio emphasised the significance of this crowdfunding initiative, stating “We are committed to making Ken Agyapong’s presidential campaign accessible to all Ghanaians. The introduction of the *797# code simplifies the donation process, ensuring that anyone who wants to support our cause can do so effortlessly”.
He further expressed his unwavering confidence in Ken Agyapong’s vision for Ghana. He reassured the public that a Ken Agyapong presidency would usher in a new era of innovation and progress for the nation.
He highlighted the promise made by the candidate, stating, “Under the leadership of Ken Agyapong, Ghanaians will witness a series of innovative reforms and developments that will benefit our nation as a whole. We are determined to make these promises a reality”.
