Some top members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have described as premature the jostling for flagbearership position in the party come 2024 general elections.
According to the Director of Communications for NPP Yaw Boaben Asamoah, the actions of those aspiring for the first position have the tendency to cause division in the party.
Just 3 months into the second term of President Akufo-Addo, some top members of the NPP have announced their presidential ambitions.
Prominent among them is the former Railways Minister, Joe Ghartey.
The Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen a.k.a “Alan Cash” who are seen to be leading contenders but are yet to announce their intentions.
Already, their posters are flying on the various social media platforms with their numerous supporters campaigning seriously for them.
Other vibrant members, including First Vice Chairman of the NPP, Frederick Fredua Antoh, have also join the chariot by saying that the conduct of the presidential hopefuls is unfair to President Nana Akufo-Addo.
As a way of registering his support, Mr Asamoa, on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme, underlined that they must hold on to allow the government consolidate its gains.
Mr Asamoah gave explainations that the litany of achievements scored by the Akufo-Addo administration will be the benchmark on which these hopefuls will campaign on, thus, it is only appropriate that they support the government to succeed.
“I think those declaring their intention is premature; they must put their presidential ambitions on hold and support President Akufo-Addo,” he added.
