Oppong-Nkrumah won the Ofoase-Ayierbi primaries in June with some 219 votes as against his contender John Obiri Yeboah’s 145. The other contestant Bright Asamoah Acquah had 45 votes.
The former radio host has indicated is preparedness to work for an NPP victory in 2016.
“Our common objective as true patriots should be to improve our party’s fortunes in December 2016 and thereby take Nana Akuffo Addo to the Flagstaff house.”

He had his secondary education at the Pope John Secondary in Koforidua and studied for his first degree at the University of Cape Coast.
