Prince Appiah Debrah has picked and filed his nomination forms to contest for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries in the Klottey Korley Constituency (KKC) of the Greater Accra Region slated for September 28, 2019.

The occasion, which could be described as a mini rally, was characterized by a procession of NPP faithful and sympathizers of delegates from the constituency to support him pick his nomination forms through the principal streets of Osu amidst brass band music and dance on Wednesday 31st July 2019.

Addressing the enthusiastic gathering, Mr. Debrah pleaded with the rank and file of the KKC delegates for unity, adding that the party can only win the seat if there is unity.

He said the party needs unity, love, and peace to win the seat in 2020.

"If we have unity, love and we work hard; I know victory will be ours in 2020".

Mr. Debrah, presenting the forms to Juliana Aboagye, the constituency Chairperson, stated that the grassroots were looking for a unifier hence their support for him.

Some of the delegates who spoke during the occasion said, Mr. Debrah has the party at heart and has demonstrated to the rank and file of the party in the Constituency.

"We are supporting him because he has the party at heart… he’s a unifier... We the delegates need him to help more people in KKC as he is doing…Please let us all support him".

He was raised entirely at Osu by his maternal grandmother, Maakpa Adoley Kpakpo of Adokwei We of Osu Ashanti whilst his parents sought greener pastures in the United States.

The young Mr. Debrah went about town by his middle name Appiah, and he was a well-known footballer in the Osu Klottey school circuit in those days. He attended Osu Presby Boys' Primary School, Osu Salem Boys' School, Oda Secondary School for GCE O'levels and, Labone Secondary School for his A'levels before proceeding to the University of Ghana where he graduated with a double major in Law and Accounting in 1996.
