A group calling itself patriotic citizens of NPP is cautioning the party’s leadership and delegates to be circumspect about who becomes the national chairman of the party leading into election 2024.
Speaking to the media, the chairman of the group, Mr. Nana Osei Bonsu wants particular attention to be given to Prof. Christopher Ameyaw-Ekumfi’s national chairmanship race as they claim he remains the only individual to help the party break the eight.
“If Professor Ameyaw Akumfi didn’t lead the party as National chairman, NPP can never break the 8 in 2024; never. Because, the names out so far Cary no weight”
He added “Someone like Stephen Ntim contested four times, Professor Ameyaw Akumfi’s experience is above them all moreover, he is a unifier and a social person as compared to other chairman’s”
The group noted with distasteful, comments by some party bigwigs declaring their support for some candidates, a situation they claim could create division among members.
Mr. Bonsu said they will resist attempts of imposing a national chairman on members through any form of machination whatsoever.
“Heard that, Hon Kennedy Agyapong has endorsed Stephen Ntim as a National chairman, well that’s his opinion that did not mean he’s the national chairman automatically. Professor Ameyaw also have some big men and the party that also endorsed him but that alone want make one the chairman. What we’re saying is we need an open leader who we can visit any day and time”
Names that have popped up for the NPP chairmanship race include Mr. Kwabena Abankwa-Yeboah, Mr. Stephen Asamoah Boateng, Prof. Christopher Ameyaw-Ekumfi, Nana Akomea, and Mr. Stephen Ntim.
The party is set to go to the polls this year to elect electoral area coordinators, polling stations, constituency, regional, and national executive members.
The party has also scheduled April 22 to 24 for constituency elections, while the regional elections will take place from the 20th to the 22nd of May
