While the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) reorganisation process heads to its pinnacle in the various regions, rumours, open declarations and support for certain flagbearer hopefuls have been rife.
It has become quite common for certain aspirants at the regional level to affiliate themselves with some individuals who have been tipped or have shown interest in leading the party to the 2024 election.
One Upper East Regional Chairman hopeful, Dr. Moses Kwabena Atinga has however shown disinterest in the affiliations that have riddled the internal reorganisation processes.
Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper Show, Dr. Atinga stated that he contesting as an independent-minded candidate.
“To align yourself to a particular camp; whether Dr. Bawumia or Alan or whomsoever, tells the delegates of this region that you are unable to take your own decisions. You are unable to execute your own campaigns and you need to lean on a certain big man on top to be able to succeed.”
“I believe in myself and I am coming as an independent-minded person, not belonging to any camp. Not affiliated to any candidate. I am coming, and by the grace of God, once I am declared the leader of this party in this region, I will become the father of the party. I should be able to bring everybody on board for the success of the party,” he said.
Dr. Atinga continued to say that “for now, we are doing the internal reorganisation, I am going for the chairmanship. The issue of presidential candidatureship is neither here nor there. I believe in my strength. I believe in the capabilities that are in me. I believe in the fire that is in me and I am ready to unleash that fire for us to get more seats in this region.”
