President Nana Akufo-Addo will be vetted by New Patriotic Party (NPP) should he, as expected, pick up forms to run for re-election.

This would remain unchanged even if the president runs for the party’s flagbearership unopposed.

This was revealed by the NPP’s National Organiser, Sammi Awuku who said President Akufo-Addo is known for his principles of subjecting himself to the constitution of the NPP.

The presidential vetting committee, he told Evans Mensah on JoyNews’ PM Express, is being chaired by former National Chairman of the party, Peter Mac Manu.

Expected opposition to Akufo-Addo

Mr Awuku also said although nominations have been opened for the party’s flagbearership, they do not expect anyone to challenge the president.

The NPP, he explained, has a culture of supporting the sitting president to run for re-election, “especially if the person has performed.”

He said this would enable the president to concentrate on managing the affairs of the country.
