General Secretary of the ruling National Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr John Boadu has sent a stem warning to members who aspire to replace Nana Akufo-Addo as the next flagbearer.
According to John Boadu, it is not yet time for members of the party to fight for who to replace outing Nana Akufo-Addo after serving his final term.
He, however called on all top-rank NPP presidential aspirant members to come together and support Akufo-Addo as they seek to win Ghanaians heart within the next four years.
The General Secretary spoke with the media as they begin a leadership tour around the country, starting from Greater Accra.
They are expected to tour in the Ashanti Region over the weekend.
From there, they will be in Bono, Ahafo, and Bono East regions. They will return to complete the Greater Accra tour before moving to the north.
Addressing the media, Mr Boadu said, “It is the good works of President Nana Addo that will be the bedrock for any flagbearer to campaign on in 2024.
So, we must allow [the president] to work, so that if Ghanaians are impressed with the work, which I believe will be so, NPP is going to be a party of the country.”
Already, there appears to be subtle jostling for support by some leading members of the party.
“Per the constitution of the NPP, nominations have not been opened for interested candidates to announce their intentions to contest for any position in the party.
It is therefore unfortunate for anyone to seek to create the impression that I held a meeting to announce my bid for the ‘flagbearership’ position of the party,”
Meanwhile, Minister of Food and Agriculture, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto has denied ever meeting some regional executives of the NPP in the Ashanti Region to announce a bid.
