The Alan Kyerematen Campaign says President Akufo-Addo wants to impose his Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) as its flag bearer.
This comes on the back of calls by some aspiring presidential candidates that the party’s super delegates congress should be centralized for a level playing field for all aspirants.
The Spokesperson for Alan Campaign, Richard Nyamah, in an interview, indicated that President Akufo-Addo need not to openly declare his support for the Vice President since everything is obvious, and they have evidence.
“He is trying to impose Bawumia on the NPP. We want a level playing field, nine out of ten say that, put us together in a room. Let’s look at each other eyeball to eyeball and tell ourselves the truth and see how that election turns out,” Mr. Nyamah stated.
He asked if “the Minister, MPs and CEOs who are wasting public resources following one candidate are doing it on their own volition? It’s obvious you can’t see it?”
“We are not going to have Ministers and MPs going and whipping people to vote in a certain direction. It is not going to happen, that won’t happen. Mr. President, please stop that. Nine out of the ten candidates have put a petition, the elders are aware they are sitting on the petition.”
“They are refusing to address it. If they want us to wash our dirty linen in public, we will do that. Who in the past has declared support for any candidate, he doesn’t have to openly declare the system is being whipped, and we are saying they should stop it,” the Alan Campaign spokesperson stated.
