Resign over 'non-Akan' NPP flag bearer comment

Resign over 'non-Akan' NPP flag bearer comment


Summary short_text

The group said Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu's comments flout the party's directives in connection with the NPP race ahead of the 2024 polls.

It has been reported without his denial that the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs who happens to be the Fifth Akan leading the Party in Parliament has openly declared that the NPP must, as a matter of necessity, choose a non-Akan candidate in the 2023 primaries, because, not doing so, according to him, will solidify the thoughtless label he subscribes to that the party is an Akan party and that may affect us in the 2024 elections.

It is very important for party functionaries like Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and his likes to know that even though the NPP calls itself Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition, we all are mindful of the fact that these three blocks do not adequately represent the NPP. Moreover, Akan cannot be restricted to Asante and Akyem.
