In the interest of the future survival and generational dominance of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Ghana, it is very prudent and justifiable for the delegates of NPP to totally and wholly REJECT any Akan Presidential aspirant during the party’s presidential primaries in 2022/2023.
The Presidential hopefuls with Akan background should do the needful and completely freeze their personal ambition and rally behind non-Akan Presidential hopefuls for the purpose of breaking the Akanfour tag which has been hanging around the neck of the Party since J. B. Danquah days.
Per the research conducted, the Akanfour Party’s tag is making it extremely difficult for NPP to have a fair share dominance of the Parliamentary seats especially in the constituencies predominantly inhabited by non-Akans.
The Party cannot continue presenting Akan Presidential candidates all the time. The delegates of the Party have the patriotic duty to change the narrative and overwhelmingly vote for a non-Akan Presidential candidate for the first time in 74 years.
For the purpose of the 2024 general elections, NPP seriously DOES NOT NEED Akan Presidential candidates. If another Akan Presidential candidate is presented by NPP for 2024, the Party may seriously be ridiculed and humiliated at the polls in 2024.
In my candid opinion, Ghanaians shall be seriously disappointed in the NPP for repeating these Akan Presidential Candidate things. It may also confirm the perception that indeed the NPP as a Party does not want non-Akans to lead the Party but just wants their votes. We can avoid this time around by electing Non-Akan Presidential Candidate who is very competent and committed to the growth of NPP tradition. So far so good DMB stand the greatest chance of leading NPP into Victory 2024.
Non-Akans are tired of occupying the Vice-Presidential Candidate Slot in NPP.
