Member of Parliament for Achiase Kofi Ahenkorah Marfo has told the NPP to not focus on the Akan tag on the party by the NDC to select an incompetent flagbearer for the party in 2024.
According to him, it will be a big blow for the party if it chooses and incompetent leader for the 2024 election considering the fact that the party wants to break the eight cycle.
“The NDC must not be listened to. We must not panic and give Bawumia the work because of what the NDC is saying. We will not allow the NDC dictate our flagbearer to us. Listening to them will be to our disadvantage.”
“We shouldn’t let that unnecessary tag as an Akan party worry us. The Akan Presidents come to power and perform very well and they don’t discriminate”, he said.
“All who want to lead the NPP have the equal opportunity to do so. As a democratic party, all contestants need to contest for the position. If you want to be President, then you need to prove yourself and nothing more. The NPP doesn’t select a flagbearer based on tribal lines.
To him, arguments of choosing a non-akan is neither her nor there and therefore there is the need for the party to focus on competence over tribal or ethnic relations.
