One of the founding members of the New Patriotic Party, Kwame Pianim has made claims that the NPP will lose the 2024 elections even if they present Former President John Agyakum Kuffour as a Flagbearer.

Mr. Pianim made this assertion on TV3’s current affairs Programme, THE KEY POINTS on Saturday 10th April 2021.

He premised his statement on the fact that the country has just elected a President and he should be supported to deliver on the promises made to Ghanaians.

He stated, “whoever is chosen as the Flagbearer will depend on President Akufo-Addo’s success in order to win power in 2024. If Nana Akuffo fails, we cannot win the election even if we bring Former President John Agyakum Kuffour”.

” How can the subjects of a newly enstooled chief be thinking about who his successor should be after a few days into his (Chief’s) reign”.

He continued to state that the NPP was formed with an ideology of serving the good people of Ghana not just selected Presidential Candidates every now then.

He continued that, it is mischievous for the media to be articulating and accommodating New Patriotic Party Flagbearership rumors when President Akufo-Addo is still forming his government.

Mr. Pianim then stated that some people want President Akufo-Addo to fail and that can be only achieved by creating divisions with Flagbearership rumors just months into his second term.

The outspoken politician took a swipe at the press for dueling on the Presidential ambitions of individuals rather than focusing on national issues and ways of solving our problems as a country.
