Majority Leader in ffģf is 100% Right- Razak Kojo Opoku writes
I am in full support of the statement from our Majority Leader in Parliament.
As a Party we cannot continue presenting Akan Presidential Candidates all the time since the formation of the Tradition. It is not good for the overall image and brand of the Party.
We need to take pragmatic steps to *diversify* our choice of Flagbearer in order to enhance our Parliamentary performance in all the 16 Regions.
Our inability to win Parliamentary Seats in Oti, and sometimes struggles to win Parliamentary Seats in the Volta, Upper East, Northern, Upper West, and the Non-Akan areas are all due to the Akanfour Perception Tag hanging around our neck for the last 74years.
Majority leader in Parliament Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu recently intimated that it will not be wise on the part of the New Patriotic Party which has been tagged an “Akan Party” to present another ‘Akan’ after the tenure of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. To him, presenting another Akan will give credence and validate the assertion that the NPP is indeed an Akan Party and is no respecter of other ethnic groups in the country .
