Members of a newly formed pressure group called “Vibrant Coalition for NPP” have kicked against Prof Mike Oquaye’s rejoinder issued in denial of his endorsement of Vice President Bawumia for the flagbearership come 2024.
They have implored the rank and file of the NPP, challenging claims by Prof Oquaye that he never endorsed the vice president or anyone as the 2024 flag-bearer for NPP in an interview he granted Okyeman TV.
Prof. Oquaye stated in his rejoinder issued on Thursday 20th May 2021 that “I wish to state emphatically that I have not endorsed anyone as the 2024 flag-bearer. On Monday May 17th 2021, Prof Mike Oquaye granted an interview to Okyeman TV’s host Raymond Kumah. The interview was not about flagbearership at all. It centered on the NPP and what it stands for from ancient to modern…”
Reacting to the foregoing, the group has questioned Prof Oquaye on whether the said publication on the interview done by The Daily Dispatch Newspaper on Wednesday May 19th 2021 or the content of the interview was cooked and doctored by the media as a way of tarnishing his image “or you truly endorsed Dr. Bawumia but realizing the pressure coming, you made a u-turn to debunk the content of the publication”.
Prince Kofi-Wusu, spokesperson for the group told www.leakynews.net that the rejoinder bears no iota of truth.
Amidst a clenched fist, he called the National Executives (NEC) of the party to investigate him and effect the necessary penalty if found guilty.
“He must be punished by the NEC because why should you endorse somebody or campaign for someone when a directive has been issued; baring all forms of campaign, done directly or indirectly in favor of a candidate”.
