Deputy General Secretary for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed his disappointment over some names that have come up in the ranks of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to replace President Akufo-Addo as the flagbearer in the 2024 general elections.

Speaking on Top Story, Peter Otokunor insisted that, the ongoing campaign by the aspirants in less than three months into the President’s second term in office is bizarre.

“What is happening in the NPP is very scary especially for a government that has been giving another mandate to rule and less than three months into the mandate they don’t have their full complement of minister and appointees and they are thinking about who hold the next elections.

“I think that is most bizarre from the government point of view but looking at the politics of it, I think the NPP have a lot to do and they know exactly what to do but I can foresee as a political strategist a total disaster for the NPP in the next election,” he stressed.

Already, fliers of Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Trade Minister, Alan Kyeremanten and Minister for Agriculture, Dr Akoto Afriyie have been circulating on social media with many predicting their ability to break the 8-year power swing in Ghana’s political space.

This has raised concern from leaders of the incumbent government calling on its members interested in competing for the 2024 flagbearership position to tone down on their campaign.

However, Mr Otokunor is of the view that the failure of the aspirant to abide by the directives from the leaders of the party will result in a ‘very long hall drama that we are going to see in the NPP.”
