Watch Your Tongue - Northern NPP Grassroots tell Kyei Mensah
The concerned Northern Region Grassroots of NPP are calling on Mr. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu to order before he does the party more harm
The concerned Northern Region Grassroots of NPP are calling on Mr. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu to order before he does the party more harm.
The supporters claim it expedient and highly imperative to strongly condemn the recent unfortunate statement the Majority Leader in Parliament carelessly made in an interview he granted Joy FM about the future of the party relative to their 2023 primaries.
“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 according to the supporters.
This, they find very worrying because all sophisticated politicians, party members, and citizens know very well that a lot of variables play in a dynamic political marketing context to determine the most favorable candidate to win an election.
“Of course, we are not the least oblivious to his vice presidential aspiration and what he seems to selfishly achieve even at the expense of the party's collective interest. That is why we need to call him to order before he does the party more harm than he had already done it in Parliament.”
“It is very important for the party functionaries like Mr. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu and his likes to know that even though the NPP calls itself Danquah- Busia- Dombo tradition, they are all mindful of the fact that these three blocks do not adequately represent the NPP.”
Moreover, Akan cannot be restricted to Asante and Akyem. The NPP also has other tribes.
What we need is a candidate that is most marketable across the board with the highest potential of winning the 2024 election to break the eight years’ jinx. This is why we find his statement very unfortunate, to say the least.”
The supporters have, however, called on all the NPP members and executives to desist from playing into the hands of the bitter rivals.
