‘I’m not for any presidential aspirant, I’ll back whoever NPP elects’ – Nana Addo

The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says he will not support any of the aspirants seeking to lead the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) into the 2024 election.

President Akufo-Addo insists that until the party elects a presidential candidate, he will not support anybody.

Though the NPP is yet to announce a date for its presidential primaries, some bigwigs including the Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, Trade Minister Alan Kyeremanteng, and Agric Minister Dr. Akoto Afriyie are reported to have shown interest.

Speaking on a local radio station in Kumasi as part of his tour of the Ashanti Region, President Akufo-Addo said it will be unwise to throw his support for one person.

The President, who was introducing a team that escorted him to visit the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II as part of his 4-Day tour of the Ashanti Region, teased Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, the Food and Agriculture Minister, and Trade and Industry Minister Alan Kyerematen on their presidential ambitions.

In the presence of Otumfuo and his elders, the President said, “I am here with the Minister of Transport, Minister for Works and Housing, the National Security Boss, Chairman One; Wontumi, the Food and Agriculture Minister; Owusu Afriyie, who wants to be President. I also have here with me someone who has long eyed the presidential seat, the Minister of Trade and Industry; Alan Kyeremanten, a very hard-working man. All of them are doing a good job”.
