The Upper East Regional Communication Director for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Peter Ayinbisa, has described as unfortunate and self-centred, some of the comments that have come from some individuals hoping to lead the NPP to the 2024 general election.
Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, Mr. Ayinbisa explained that at this point of the contest, the individuals should be only talking about themselves and what their individual competencies are and not sending subtle and overt jabs at other candidates.
The Regional Communications Director added that it is even more unfortunate considering the fact that the party had not even gone for the super-delegates conference to trim the number.
“These are internal matters and I didn’t expect anyone to be jumping into national matters unless you are somebody who is very mischievous. At this point, we are talking about who will lead our political party, the NPP. We are not talking already about who will lead Ghana. We have not got there yet. Have we? The message to the delegates should be, look at me as a person and consider my contributions to the party and not what has been done at the national level. Unless you are being mischievous, you would not be blaming someone.”
Mr. Ayinbisa explained that all such comments are borne out of mischief and obvious self-centredness.
“Some are doing these because they have not been a part of the government. I will give an example as Dr. Apraku who has been complaining. His problem is that Akufo-Addo promised him and yet did not give him any appointments and because of that, he is not part of the system. That is his problem,” he said.
The Regional Communication Director was also particularly disappointed in all recent comments of Kwabena Agyapong, former General Secretary of the NPP.
Meanwhile, the NPP, pursuant to Article 10(3) of the New Patriotic Party’s Constitution, the Vetting Committee for the Party’s Presidential Primary Election submitted its report to the National Council through the General Secretary on Monday, July 10, 2023.
In the report, the Committee recommended the under-listed individuals as eligible to participate in the upcoming Presidential Primaries subject to the approval of the National Council.
Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, Kwadwo Poku, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Boakye Kyeremateng Agyarko, Kwabena Agyei Agyapong, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku, Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie, Joe Ghartey and Francis Addai-Nimoh
The National Council of the Party is scheduled to deliberate on the Vetting Committee’s recommendations on July 20, 2023. This is according to Justin Kodua Frimpong, General Secretary of the NPP.
