New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Awutu Senya West, George Andah, says claims that the party’s flagbearer has not demonstrated good leadership qualities are porous and unfounded.

He said Nana Akufo-Addo’s tolerance of dissenting views within the party has been the reason for the misconception that he lacks leadership qualities.

“The flagbearer and the party are extremely tolerant. I don’t see why we need to worry ourselves about what others from another party are saying,” he said.

The Marketing guru was speaking on current affairs programme, PM Express, on Joy News Channel Monday.

In the wake of the bitter infighting within the opposition party, commentators both within the party and from the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) have said the bickering in the NPP is due to Nana Akufo-Addo’s inability to unite factions within the party.

George Andah said those allegations are false and admonished that difficult problems facing the country should rather be the focus of discussions.

“There are serious bread and butter issues facing this country,” he told show host, Malik Abass Daabu.
