Although the next general elections in Ghana seem a long way ahead, there’s internal wrangling within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on who leads them.
Some notable names like the present Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and former Trade Minister Alan Kyeremanten have been tipped to lead the elephant family.
In that regard, Solomon Owusu, NPP communicator and a loyalist to Alan Kyeremanten has stressed that the party’s next flagbearer will be Alan no matter the situation.
He was reacting to a statement by Majority leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu that he’ll prefer a non-Akan (obviously the now Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia) to be flagbearer of the party in the 2024 elections. In a counterattack, Solomon Owusu said even Alan is dying on his sickbed, he’ll win still lead the NPP in 2024.
“Who God has blessed no man curse, nothing can stop the coming of Alan Kyeremanten as NPP’s next flagbearer and ultimately being Ghana’s next President. Even if he’s on his sickbed, he’ll occupy the Presidency and the ongoing plot to block him must stop as it’s an exercise in futility.
“The grassroots and the patriots who have toiled for the NPP are calling for Alan Kyeremanten because this is his time to lead the party.
Every party that wants to win elections, you pick a leader from your base, this is trite knowledge you don’t need a Solomon like me to tell you,” he said on Ghana Kasa show on Agoo TV/Kasapa FM Wednesday morning.
